Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter As reported before,Rey Mysterio tested positive for amphetamines back on February 13th but wasn't suspended until April 26th. He is currently serving a 60 days suspension. At the time Rey was told of his failure, he was told to submit all of the different medications that he was taking since he said he had no idea why he would have tested positive. WWE would have had their doctors evaluate the medications to see if there was a legitimate reason for the amphetamines. The belief now is that a dietary supplement he was taking to lose weight could have contained a small amount of amphetamines. Shortly after the drug test in February in San Diego, there was talk within WWE of frustration with him to the point it was said he would not be getting any kind of push upon returning. People were told in early March not to waste time coming up with angles or storylines for his return but no reasons were given. A very small number of people in the company would have known about the failure from February 13th until April 26th as doctors evaluated the case. Mysterio, who is currently signed to a long-term contract with WWE, won't be eligible to return until June 25th. Since he was not working on the road, the two month suspension would likely cost him around $166,667 in salary

As reported before,Brock Lesnar was told he would be losing to John Cena at Extreme Rules several weeks back. Lesnar has made it clear that he's about the money, not the ego, and if they want him to lose, he has no problem with it as long as they play fair with him. According to sources, it was made clear to Cena and Lesnar that their feud would be a one-match program. Officials felt that Lesnar could leave at any time and they needed their top guy getting the win first time out to make sure that it happened. WWE has already used 5 of Lesnar's limited dates in the first month of his contract so expect him to be used sparingly if at all over the next few months. With that said, Lesnar vs. Triple H for SummerSlam is reportedly in the works.

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter Michael Cole's heel announcer gimmick was supposed to officially end at WrestleMania 28. His new role is to be an "edgy" character who still respects John Laurinaitis, one of WWE's top heels. A recent sign of Cole retreating from being an annoying heel and shifting to a more neutral role was that he was sympathetic towards John Cena during his feud with Brock Lesnar
