Mick Foley's charity drive for RAINN has raised over $100,000, more than ten times what they initially hoped to raise with the drive. Foley is auctioning off a lot of historical items from his career, including the original Mr. Socko and the shirt he wore for his Hell in A Cell bout against the Undertaker.

Alicia Fox is believed to have suffered a shoulder injury, possibly a separation, from taking a stiff Kharma clothesline at last night's Smackdown taping. Fox landed rudely on her side taking the shot.

WWE had been planning to break up Layla and Michelle McCool for months, going back to WrestleMania 27. They didn't do the LayCool split at WrestleMania likely because they wanted to focus on the match with Snooki after she agreed to wrestle. After WrestleMania, WWE went back to the LayCool split storyline and rushed it over the past month or so.
McCool is leaving WWE on good terms and has been offered a spot on a likely second season of WWE Tough Enough as well as an office job. There's talk that McCool and her husband, The Undertaker, are looking to settle down and start a family.
