– Even though WWE released Sgt. Slaughter as an agent, he is still affiliated with the company as an ambassador along with Ted DiBiase Sr., Jim Duggan and Tony Atlas, among a few others. Jimmy Hart used to have a similar role with the company.
– WWE currently has 40 men and three women in developmental at Florida Championship Wrestling. The goal was to have 70 talents signed. The second generation wrestlers are Brett DiBiase, Dakota Darsow, Joe Hennig, Taylor Rotunda, Haku’s son Tevita Fifita, Gerald Brisco’s son Wes and Windham Rotunda, who wrestles at Tank Mulligan. WWE only has four trainers employed in developmental, Steve Keirn, Tom Brichard, Norman Smiley and Billy Kidman.
– We will have more details later, but January overall looks to be a bad month in business for WWE’s house shows, even though February appears to have done really good. WWE’s website in January was up to 14.3 million visitors, a big increase over previous months. Despite the jump in traffic, actual orders for merchandise on WWE’s shop website were down to 516 per day, down 31% from the same time last year. WWE shipped 331,000 DVD units for the month, down 15% from the same time last year.
