Re: Can we get an update on some "missing" wrestlers?
Ezekiel Jackson and Mason Ryan are not absent because of any ramifications for Ryback. Let's face it, Ryback got more over squashing nobodies than they've ever threatened to get actually doing relevant things in the past. Both men are injured. Ryan is expected back shortly. Zeke is gone for a while and I wouldn't be shocked if he's released in early 2013 as he just hasn't panned out for them.
Alex Riley just had surgery done on both his knee and elbow, apparently. He won't be around until early 2013, at least.
Trent Barreta is just returning to NXT, I thought.
Have no idea about Hunico and Camacho. The "Linda election" concerns could be real.
As said, Jack Swagger--who became a new father not too long ago--is taking some time off. Both he and WWE want him gone for a while so he can recharge his batteries, so to speak, and sort of have a new "fresh start" once he returns to the product, considering how far he had fallen in WWE.
Evan Bourne is still out injured. He's on two strikes now, as well, so it's difficult to predict just how or when he will be used in any event.
Tamina apparently lost favor with Vince after he took a liking to her after he decided to drop her after taking a liking to her back early in the year. Who knows where she is or what she's doing now? No way to run a global company.
