Candice has been out of action since March due to her twice broken collar bone. She should be ready to return to the ring soon. Ross also commented on the recent roster cuts (“Another tough week for some WWE talents who got news that they were being released. I know that there are some really good human beings who will be soon looking for work and I sincerely hope that none of them stop chasing their dreams.”), SummerSlam, Shawn Michaels, Brock Lesnar, and more.
