Former WWE star Tyler Reks wasn't thrilled about the announcement of the new Camp WWE cartoon series. Reks, who had produced his own animated online series called "Mid-Card Mafia" only to see WWE shut it down, wrote on Twitter, "I almost get fired 4 an "irreverent" cartoon & @WWE decides 2 make their own? Hope Mark Henry doesn't cry about it." He noted that he still has the unreleased second "season" and may post them online. The animated series was Reks' attempt to do something to get he and others' attention, similar to Zack Ryder's online series, only to end up getting heat for it.

World champion John Cena was interviewed by Marvel.com about his return to the ring, super powers he would want and more at this link. It's a good interview. On his return, Cena commented, "I just don't like [being out].

I've truly found a home in the WWE and when I'm not there all I want to do is be there. I think that helped me get back really soon because everything I did was focused on getting back sooner and sooner."
