* Harry Smith returned to WWE earlier in 2021 but hasn’t been used on television. Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com noted that Smith hasn’t been assigned to a brand yet and “he’s in ‘hurry up and wait’ mode, but he’s 100% with the company.”
* Mia Yim hasn’t competed on WWE television since the end of 2020 and fans have been speculating about her status with the company. Yim simply wrote “I’m not injured” on Twitter in regards to her status and Bayley replied…
Maybe I’ll have to kick your azzzzzz too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
