- Apparently people within WWE were talking that the June 24th RAW rating was hurt partially due to CM Punk tweeting about how good the Chicago Blackhawks and the NHL playoffs were. The June 24th rating was absolutely hurt by the NHL game but the idea that it was due to Punk tweeting and turning wrestling fans into hockey fans is pretty far-fetched.
– WWE’s website currently has an article up looking at 5 potential dream opponents for Rob Van Dam’s return. They list John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Ryback, CM Punk and Brock Lesnar. They also have a poll up asking if RVD will be a Paul Heyman guy when he returns. As of right now, 73% of fans think RVD will make an impact on his own, without Heyman.
– Regarding Daniel Bryan not being punished over the recent confrontation with Triple H backstage, some witnesses say Vince McMahon was there and others say he wasn’t present. Apparently Vince has given Triple H full control of managing talent and when Triple H didn’t want to punish Bryan for his outburst, Vince didn’t overrule him.
