– There is talk about taping the SmackDown before on April 2nd instead of April 3rd, so that they can have the day to post produce the event. No final decision has been made to do the show live, but it will be either on the 2nd or 3rd from the Reliant Center in Houston.

– The original plan for WrestleMania was to be vs. Mickey Rourke in some form of boxing match, with in the corner of Rourke.

Austin reportedly says Jericho is one of the few people he would trust to have a match with at this point, and also, it would play into Jericho’s recent promo work, where he made fun of “washed up Hall of Famers.”
