– This week’s SmackDown event in Chicago drew 8,500 fans for $320,000 while the show in Pittsburgh drew 9,000 fans for $355,000. The RAW show on Monday night in Albany, New York drew 6,000 fans.
– Last week WWE had a tentative WrestleMania line-up written that included John Cena vs. The Miz for the WWE Title and Randy Orton vs. CM Punk.
No word yet on what this means for their plans for the Punk vs. Cena program that is currently going on but with two pay-per-views between now and WrestleMania, it would be hard not to have a Punk vs. Cena match before WrestleMania, depending on how they planned to do the angle with Nexus involved.
Obviously things will be changed depending on Cena’s injury.
