– Considering Wrestlemania XXV performed so well on pay-per-view in Mexico, more cable systems in Mexico plan on offering more WWE pay-per-view events. For years, all WWE pay-per-view events had been airing on regular television in Mexico because people aren’t culturally used to paying for wrestling on television.
– Maryse is now the longest reigning WWE Divas Champion in history, having held the title for 157 days as of today. She broke Michelle McCool’s previous record of 155 days as title holder yesterday.
– Internally, multiple sources are under the impression that Jeff Hardy has not signed a new contract with World Wrestling Entertainment. Matt Hardy posted a blog on his MySpace account last week seemingly hinting that his brother had struck a deal, but he never directly said that was the case. In a follow-up blog, Hardy basically said he enjoys getting a rise out of wrestling websites trying to figure out what he writes.
He wrote: “One that most of the wrestling newsites translated as having something to do with Jeff and the WWE. Maybe it did, maybe it didn’t. Time will tell. Although I must admit, I thoroughly enjoyed them picking up the story and trying to decipher it. Plus, it made my blog the #1 myspace blog for a couple days-good press and publicity, thanks guys! It’s no secret I love putting pieces of info out there that allow people to interpret it how they wish. And no, no one made me take it down for letting “the cat out of the bag” HAHA. Here is the original text for those who missed it (and yes, you must highlight it to see it)..”
One source said it’s possible he will agree to a short-term extension that would keep him working for the company temporarily until some of the other top stars return to television, but that was simply speculation on his part.
