Are you disappointed a lot of the Royal Rumble participants have already been announced, taking away a lot of the surprise?

I just penned an update on the participants for the 30-man Royal Rumble match as WWE still only lists 9 workers on their official entrants list. I do not believe everyone that was featured in the closing segment of WWE Raw will be in the match as they just wanted to create the Rumble atmosphere so they cleared the locker room.

Who are the favorites to win this year's Royal Rumble? Please tell me it's not John Cena.

The two names I have heard since late last year, and have reported, are Sheamus and Ryback. The plans for the 30-man Royal Rumble match were actually finalized around a month ago although the names I reported were before plans were finalized and I haven't heard any leaks since. I would love to alleviate your concerns but at this time that's all the information I have.

Have you heard any update on Rey Mysterio and his current family situation?

Rey Mysterio is dealing with a personal matter that has required him to take time off. We do not feel it's appropriate to disclose any more details other than he worked last weekend in Los Angeles.

Whatever happened to the "Legend's House" show that was supposed to air on the WWE Network? Last I heard it had started filming and was set to appear on SyFy.

WWE Legend's House wrapped about a year ago and is ready to air… the problem is there is no home for the series. WWE hoped they would be able to launch the WWE Network last year but the fact of the matter is they were unable to get clearance/distribution deals signed to get it in enough homes. Negotiations remain and the only thing we know for sure is the WWE Network will be a paid subscription model. I posted an extensive update here on Premium on Friday.
