Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that Eric Bischoff is slated to be on the backstage scene for SmackDown tonight when the blue brand rolls into San Antonio, TX.

According to Meltzer, although Bischoff will be in attendance for tonight’s show (no news regarding if he’ll be on-air presence or not) it appears that his start date on the Creative Director job will be the SmackDown after WWE Extreme Rules.

Meltzer also confirms in the episode that Maria Kanellis is indeed pregnant and it is not just storyline-based. Regarding Kanellis, PWInsider.com is also reporting Kanellis is expecting, and informed WWE of the news shortly after she and Mike Kanellis signed new contracts with the company.
