Speculation About Ryder’s Absense, Birthdays, WWE In Alabama

– Zack Ryder appeared to be written out of WWE storylines on RAW after a brutal beat down from Kane that resulted in a [storyline] herniated disc in his back. There is speculation in the WWE locker room that Ryder will be working on some sort of new project during the next few weeks – either filming a movie or working on a show for the WWE Network.
