- Don’t expect The Rock’s return to RAW on January 7th to pop a big rating because it goes head to head with the BCS Championship game, which draws more viewers than even a major Monday Night Football game. At best, The Rock being on the January 7th show may prevent it from doing another 2.5-level rating. Current confirmed dates for The Rock include January 7th, January 21st, January 28th, the Royal Rumble and the Elimination Chamber. Obviously more dates will be confirmed.
– The recent injury that WWE Divas Champion Eve Torres suffered was to her right elbow.
– While MVP and Shelton Benjamin have been discussed internally about returning to WWE, WWE has not contacted them. WWE officials are looking to bring back some mid-card talents but they have not reached out to anyone yet. Some of the names discussed included Benjamin, MVP, Gavin Spears, Cliff “Domino” Compton and others.
One other name that was mentioned is Billy Gunn. It was reported earlier this week that he has been re-hired as a developmental trainer but that’s not confirmed. No word yet if they plan on using Gunn on TV.
