WWE SmackdownLaurinaitis' "Mistake" on Raw

Tonight on Raw, John Laurinaitis announced that he had re-signed Big Show to a contract on Saturday, which would have made him a WWE superstar on Sunday night.

The Raw announcement was either an error on Laurinaitis' part, or a case of WWE not following its own logic, as Big Show should have been fired due to his involvement in the Over the Limit main event.
