The WWE shows were live from Houston this week after a very eventful Survivor Series weekend. These are the superstars that WWE neglected to use this week. 

Most notable absence: Carmella

This week’s most notable absence was Ms. Money in the Bank herself, Carmella. With her being eliminated quite late into the Survivor Series elimination match, having the future SmackDown Live Women’s Champion miss an episode of SmackDown Live could be bad for her character. Although most Money in the Bank holders start losing a lot before cashing in the contract, Carmella has a bright future in the company and it doesn’t help if she isn’t used on the weekly shows.

Most Notable Return: Paige

This week’s most notable return was the Anti-Diva, Paige. It’s been over a year since we last saw Paige on Raw and when she made her return on Raw, she didn’t come alone. She returned with two divas from NXT, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville. It’s too early to tell what Paige’s future on Raw looks like but one can be optimistic.
