– A promo was taped at last Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings where Johnny Curtis said he would be debuting on the August 5th episode. For some reason or another, the promo with Curtis did not air on this week’s SmackDown so it doesn’t look like he will be debuting next Friday.
– To promote Monday’s RAW, CM Punk will be appearing at JD Byrider on West 38th. Street in Indianapolis on Monday afternoon from 11:45am until 1pm. The Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis has also announced a CM Punk vs. John Cena match for Monday’s RAW, likely the dark main event.
– This past Friday, John Cena surpassed Pedro Morales with more days spent as WWE Champion. As of today, Cena has held the WWE Title a total of 1,030 days over his 9 reigns. Cena is currently #4 on the list behind #3 Bob Backlund, #2 Hulk Hogan and #1 Bruno Sammartino.
If you include Cena’s 2 reigns with the World Heavyweight Title, Cena’s total days as a major champion in WWE is 1,133. If Cena keeps the WWE Title until SummerSlam on August 14th, he will pass Triple H’s total 1,148 days as a WWE Champion & World Champion, based off Triple H’s 8 WWE Title reigns and 5 World Heavyweight Title reigns.
