– As reported last week, the buyrate for this year’s pay-per-view came in and the number was disappointing to say the least. The show did 445,000 buys, with 40% of those coming from outside of the United States (thus bringing in less revenue to the company). The figure is down from the 575,000 buys the show did last year — a 23% drop. The reaction backstage to the number was said to have been a complete shock to some, although others saw it coming as pay-per-view buyrates have been down in recent months. The main draw of the pay-per-view is the Rumble match itself and many feel this year’s event year was not hyped as well as previous years. The creative team felt the match would simply sell itself. Apparently, it did not as this year’s Rumble pay-per-view drew it’s lowest buyrate in twelve years.

is said to be very high on WWE Divas Champion at the moment.

– SmackDown wrestler was originally scheduled to take part in the Money in the Bank Match at XXV, but company officials went back and forth on and , going with Henry instead. At this point, R-Truth looks to be the only wrestler featured on the official poster for XXV that won’t be getting a match at the big show — possible dark match battle royal notwithstanding.

– Tuesday night’s edition of ECW scored a 1.35 cable rating, slightly up from last week’s 1.34 rating.
