– One reason given for why and ECW Champion didn’t have matches at 25 is because there’s a feeling that they haven’t been in the business long enough to earn a spot on WWE’s biggest show. Regarding Swagger, there was also a feeling that he would have another bad performance like he did at with , as mentioned earlier.

– WWE has lost their TV deal in South Korea. CJ Media, which owns stations XTM and TVN, had a $6 million per year contract with WWE but it recently expired and was not renewed. XTM was broadcasting RAW while TVN was showing SmackDown, ECW and Bottom Line. Sung Min Soo, the South Korean announcer for WWE since the beginning in 2000, says he doesn’t believe any other station in South Korea is interested in airing WWE programming because it’s too hard to find sponsors for the shows.

– WWE did indeed offer the job of SmackDown General Manager before giving it to Teddy Long. Word is that they offered him $250,000 a year to come back as a full-time regular but Flair turned it down because it was far less than the amount of money he is making doing what he is doing these days on his own. Besides Flair, WWE creative also talked about giving the SmackDown General Manager role to Dusty Rhodes. Stephanie called Dusty about doing the job. Dusty has been working in Tampa, FL with the developmental territory at FCW and left the WWE creative team because he didn’t like all the traveling at his age and size.
