WWE.Com advertised him as making an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Show late Monday night/early Tuesday morning, but he wasn't on ... At first I thought that he had been bumped to the next night's show to make room for newly-acquired Laker Gary Payton (since the show is taped in LA, and Magic Johnson was scheduled to be a guest that night). However, WWE.Com has made no mention of him appearing at a later date, or even of his absence at all.
Anyone have any info if he's going to be on the show anytime soon?

It's just like kgriffey79 says. Because when they booked Payton & Magic, they didn't have room for Foley. Foley moved on with his book tour. Simple as that.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
And we all miss seeing the spectacle of Foley overselling a pillow and making Cousin Sal look like Triple H.
All right, I'm enjoying Rhyno's "man-beast" gimmick: He keeps his hair long, wears full-body wrestling tights with a big "R" on the back and uses the "Rhino Gore" as his finishing move. Can't you imagine him watching the Discovery Channel one day while tossing around possible gimmicks and having one of those "Hey, wait a second!" epiphanies during a rhino segment?
To spruce things up, the WWF should give Undertaker and Kane last names -- like Undertaker and Kane O'Brien, the O'Brien Brothers -- just for comedy's sake. Hopefully the door's still open.
RVD is approaching the always-exciting "The crowd loves him, but he's not getting a major push yet" phase which helps makes wrestling so much fun. It only happens once every few years -- Stone Cold in '96, The Rock in '98, Shawn Michaels in '93 and so on. -- ESPN's Bill Simmons back in 2001
I'm pleased to hear that they were able to get new TV deals. While I don't watch WWE these days, I like the idea of them being in a position to expose new viewers to wrestling through all of their programming hours.
