WWE Superstar Wade Barrett has made it back to the United States safely from WWE's most recent European tour. There had previously been rumors that Barrett was having issues with his visa, and could be delayed coming back to the United States from the UK.

The former Intercontinental Champion worked several dates over the course of the tour, and could be making his return to Monday Night Raw on the special "Raw Country" episode tonight. He noted the following on Twitter:

WWE Ending "Classics on Demand" 

WWE will be ending its long-time "Classics on Demand" cable subscription service as of January 31st, 2014. The following is a memo sent out by WWE to subscribers. 

"As of January 31, 2014, WWE CLASSICS ON DEMAND will no longer be available as a monthly subscription service. This is not a choice made by Mediacom, but rather a business decision made by the WWE in order to focus on other programming content."

There's a very good possibility that the reason WWE is cancelling it's On-Demand service is in preparation for the long awaited WWE Network, which would obviously house that sort of content in the future.
