- The August 5th Friday Night SmackDown had 14% of the viewers watching on a tape or DVR delay, or 86% live. The August 12th show was 87% live and 13% taped.
– Stefan Gorges, who keeps an annual list of WWE Superstar win-loss records, noted that Jinder Mahal lost his first TV match on this past Monday’s RAW when he teamed with The Great Khali to face Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston. Before that and with the exception of a SmackDown battle royal, Mahal had won his first 26 matches.
– In another trivia note, if John Cena loses to Alberto Del Rio at Night of Champions, it will be the first time Cena has lost on three straight WWE pay-per-view events since the Summer of 2008 when he lost to Triple H, JBL and Batista at three straight events. This year, Cena has lost twice in a row to CM Punk at SummerSlam and Money in the Bank.
