– WWE Studios’ 12 Rounds starring sold 332,000 units on DVD, which is considerably more than the unit sales for 25 on DVD. To compare, Race to Witch Mountain starring former WWE Superstar Dwayne “” Johnson has sold 1,037,970 units for $18 million as of August 16th. It should also be noted that it has only been out for two weeks, whereas Cena’s film has been out on DVD since late June.

– WWE is quite hot in Mexico at the moment as both RAW and SmackDown are among the top 20 television shows in the country. RAW was the fourth highest rated show on Televisa Ch. 5 in May whereas Smackdown was the fourth highest rated show of the month on Ch. 7. For the month of April RAW averaged a 13.1 rating whereas SmackDown did a 13.2. Considering the population of Mexico is 109 million, a 13 rating would equal approximately 8 million viewers.

– The latest on Tony Atlas’ status with WWE is that he is still under contract to the organization, receiving his downside guarantee. We may not have seen the last of the former Saba Simba on WWE television as there has been talk of having him managing someone down the line.

Back in the spring, there was an angle in place where would turn on Atlas by firing him as his associate, thus making the Hall of Famer a babyface. However, the storyline was dropped cold when the decision was made to move Henry over to RAW and turn him babyface.
