Updates on AJ Lee, the Usos, Bray Wyatt, Triple H and more

A lot of backstage news came out after Raw Monday courtesy of Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com.

Among the many tidbits Johnson reported was an update on WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee.

Lee suffered a concussion during the Battleground pay-per-view Oct. 6. She was not on Raw Oct. 7, but did make an appearance on this week’s episode. Although she merely stood ringside while her heavy Tamina Snuka beat up on Brie Bella.

Lee has since been cleared to get back in the ring. She is not expected to take part in the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view later this month, but Johnson reports that Lee could team with Snuka to take on the Bella Twins at the pay-per-view.

Another nugget from Johnson’s report was that the Usos could be worked into the tag team title picture for Hell in a Cell. The Usos earned a future title tag team title shot a couple of weeks ago, but were passed over for the Rhodes brothers this past Monday.

WWE made it a point to mention that the Usos were miffed about being passed over, which will give them a personal issue in a possible triple threat match between them, the Rhodes brothers and The Shield.

Notice that Triple H and Shawn Michaels have not been seen on screen together since Michaels’ return? Well, that was by design, according to Johnson. WWE wants to keep the Kliq members apart on television in an effort to make their eventual face-to-face a big moment.

Speaking of Triple H, Johnson reports that he has been penciled in for a match against Big Show at Survivor Series. That has not yet been confirmed, but it seems to be the direction the story is going.

Last but no least, Johnson reports that Bray Wyatt versus The Miz was scheduled for Hell in a Cell, but with Wyatt’s injury, the match has been pushed back until Survivor Series.

Wyatt has not been cleared to get back into the ring just yet so in the meantime, WWE will work around his injury by having him torment The Miz for weeks upon weeks. It should be interesting how they keep that story going all the way until then.
