– Look for Attitude Era stars to be making appearances on upcoming episodes of WWE Raw and possibly even Smackdown to help promote WWE ’13 which is due out at the end of the month.
– I’m told things are looking very good for sales of CM Punk: Best in the World. Some in the company are expecting it to break the record for first week sales. The only concern is that all of the diehard Punk fans have already purchased and it will need a solid weekend in sales to hit the mark.
– The closing segment of WWE Raw featuring the aftermath of Vince McMahon vs. CM Punk did a 3.6 rating and Vince was “very happy” viewers tuned back in.
– Vince McMahon will speak with John Cena again this weekend about his status for Hell in a Cell. As we reported first, Ryback wasn’t a decoy but was actually placed in the program to give the company a backup plan. Should they have to go with Punk vs. Ryback if Cena is unable to go, Brock Lesnar has been their talked “out plan” for a match that would be impossible to book a clean outcome.
