— Following Rey Mysterio’s visit backstage at last week’s Raw SuperShow in San Diego, California, any mention of his name to WWE brass reportedly resulted in a very negative speech. There has been underlying friction on management’s part due to tough contract negotiations and not returning from injuries as early as they’d like. Also, some feel because of his small stature, he’s lucky to be employed to WWE.
— The February 20 Raw SuperShow garnered a 3.24 cable rating, up from 2.99 the week before. The February 6 show drew a 3.25.
Raw averaged 4.63 million viewers, nearly identical to an average of 4.62 million on Feb. 6. The program averaged 4.66 million viewers in the first hour and declined to 4.59 million in the second.
— Jerry Lawler will face Tommy Dreamer on March 16 in Nashville, Tennessee at 1056 East Trinity Lane. The show also features a match between Doug Gilbert and Larry Zbyszko.
