– Matches for today’s WWE Superstars are Jinder Mahal vs. Alex Riley, Mason Ryan & Santino Marella vs. Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks plus Divas action with Tamina vs. Natalya.
– The Royal Rumble pay-per-view isn’t sold out yet but is expected to be sold out before that night.
– WWE officials had talks this week about how to publicly handle a change in launch date for the new Network. Kevin Dunn has gained power in the Network and he’s come up with several ideas for 30-minute shows.
This has re-solidified Dunn in Vince McMahon’s eyes as a “battle-tested asset” and a key part of the WWE hierarchy. It’s been expected that Dunn’s position of power will be gone once Stephanie McMahon and Triple H take over.
