– Last night’s edition of WWE SmackDown did a 2.6 fast national broadcast rating on the CW Network. Look for the final number to be out later next week.
– A number of people in both Ring of Honor and TNA Wrestling are as baffled as anyone else about the official WWE website including news on their promotions. No one is complaining but everyone that I have spoken with has said it is a very weird move by WWE.
– Today’s edition of the New York Times has an article online profiling Vince and Linda McMahon. The article features a quote by Linda as she refers to Vince as a “marshmallow” and a real “pushover” and talks about Vince sending her a bouquet of yellow roses on Valentine’s Day. The news worthy piece out of the article is that WWE will break ground this summer on a $70 million project that will nearly triple their 39,000-square-foot television studio in Connecticut. The article mentions how WWE just completed a $20 million upgrade to their studio to allow them to broadcast their television in High Definition. You can read the full article at this link.
