Rey Mysterio’s 30 day WWE suspension ends October 3rd. Mysterio will be working at the October 4th Hell in a Cell PPV in Newark, NJ. Mysterio is scheduled to be the tag team partner for Batista, to take on Chris Jericho and Big Show for the WWE Unified Tag Team Championships. Earlier reports stated that the expectation was Mysterio would return at the SmackDdown tapings on October 6th in Trenton, NJ. In the past, the WWE wouldn’t put talent on their pay-per view events without them first appearing on WWE TV to build up a storyline first.
Former TNA Employee Jim Cornette announced at Saturday night’s Ring of Honor event in New York he is now the company’s new executive producer. Cornette also said in front of the live crowd, “Sarah Palin will give Barack Obama a lap dance on the steps of the capital before I get behind Vince Russo.”
