– A Wall Street cheat sheet website put out an early look at WWE’s second quarter earnings that will be made public on Thursday. Business analysts are predicting a 29.6% rise in revenue from a year ago or $138.5 million. The projection for the year is $487.3 million, which is a 2% rise from $477.7 million in 2010.



– As noted earlier, it was not Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine who lost to Brodus Clay in the RAW dark match last night, it was a local wrestler named Alex Silva. Silva is from Montreal and has been wrestling in OVW but was billed last night from Indianapolis. Thanks to PH Chartrand for his help with that.

– Sources report that CM Punk can directly be credited with Zack Ryder getting more TV exposure over the past few weeks.

– Speaking of Ryder, he confirmed on Twitter that he’s working tonight’s SmackDown tapings, returning in the role of Teddy Long’s assistant. Ryder’s brief win streak ended on RAW last night as he and Santino Marella lost to David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty. WWE’s website made a point to note that Ryder’s streak had ended.
