– Vince McMahon made the decision to strip the Undertaker of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the April 22nd SmackDown taping. It is unsure why he was stripped other than the internal feeling was that Edge worked better as a champion than a challenger.

– Triple H is rumored to be in the upcoming â<80><9c>Thorâ<80> movie which is being produced by Marvel. Rumors indicate that both Triple H and Kevin McKidd (from the HBO series â<80><9c>Romeâ<80>) are the two lead candidates for the role. The title would be for the late spring of 2010.

– Rey Mysterio was scheduled to return at One Night Stand in San Diego on June 1st. It now looks as if he will be out longer as WWE has pulled him from all house shows in June.
