– Friday’s teleconference with WWE officials and a committee in Vancouver to discuss bringing WrestleMania to the city will also include the Vancouver Athletic Commission. WWE made the decision back in February that they want to go ahead and decide the WrestleMania host cities for 2012, 2013 and 2014, from the list of cities we listed last week that have put in bids.

– People in the media who asked WWE for an interview with Shawn Michaels this past week were told by WWE officials that Shawn is really retired and not doing interviews.

– Several of the top talents in WWE were not happy about Jim Ross being off the WrestleMania 26 announcing team. Matt Striker’s some-what odd announcing at WrestleMania was a huge topic of discussion. For what it’s worth, Striker was being coached to come across the way he did.
