– As of this week, WWE is planning to keep the normal 2012 pay-per-view schedule with the Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania 28 but from April through December, the plan is for only SummerSlam and Survivor Series to be national pay-per-views – the rest are set to air on the WWE Network as specials. Those also may remain on pay-per-view based on the idea that much of the country won’t be able to access the Network.
– WWE referee Justin King is having an undisclosed surgery in the coming weeks and is expected to be out of action for several months. The surgery is reportedly not related to any injury he has suffered on the job.
– As noted earlier, there has been internal discussion about how Michael Cole has buried talents over the past year and how that burying hasn’t helped them any. Zack Ryder and Daniel Bryan were specifically brought up as far as Cole burying them goes. It was pointed out that Cole has put them down in commentary forever and both haven’t been booked as main event talents up until recently and it showed when they had to rely on Bryan, Ryder and CM Punk to carry the RAW main event, which flopped, a few weeks back.
