The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Paul "Big Show" Wight is not planned to be involved in tonight's Royal Rumble at Madison Square Garden unless plans change late. He is expected to make his return to TV very soon after recently signing a new deal with the company.

It is also being reported by The Wrestling Observer that UFC made a deal with Madison Square Garden to heavily push the upcoming UFC 81 PPV featuring Brock Lesnar's debut against Frank Mir inside the arena tonight.
