- A Twitter study of WWE and UFC shows that per capita, based on tweets that mention the brand name, WWE’s best three states are New Jersey, New Hampshire and Connecticut. UFC’s are Nevada, Montana and New Mexico. Both UFC and WWE’s best states are the ones they are headquartered in so it’s a metric likely moved by employees. On a geographical basis, WWE’s best states were Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine, West Virginia, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Colorado. WWE’s worst were Oregon, Utah, Kansas, Louisiana Georgia and Alabama.

– We noted before that WWE officials were wanting to do Steve Austin vs. Triple H with Austin backing Vince McMahon in a fight for control of the company for next year’s WrestleMania XXX main event. That idea was proposed in creative but had never been agreed to. Word now is that it’s off the books. No word yet on exactly why the idea was nixed but the idea of The Rock in Austin’s role has been talked about as well.

At one point, the idea for SummerSlam was that Vince, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H would unite but later in the year they would split again with Triple H going heel.

    Easy have Tripe H “divorce stephanie” in a way that he gains power over the company and comes out as being gay with Paul Heyman.

    Uncle Vince wants to see it, and see it at ‘Mania. And, he decided for us that we wanted to see it as well, saving us the time to think for ourselves.

    Who wants to see a power struggle storyline? If I wanted to, I would watch old clips from the early 2000s instead.

    Wait, why does HHH think we want to see him face Stone Cold? We’ve seen that back when they were both in their prime. The fans want Stone Cold vs CM Punk.

    How could Triple H go heel? Vince and Stephanie have been playing the heel role quite well (it’s natural, I guess) and Triple H has flawlessly been face. Why change that? It will only confuse the fanbase.
