Low Numbers for the WM 26 DVD, WWE’s Return to Japan, Husky’s Brother

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

– Early numbers are in for the WrestleMania 26 DVD and they don’t look good. After its first two weeks on the market, the DVD sold only 24,810 units. WrestleMania 25 on DVD sold 106,427 in its first two weeks. Previous WrestleMania DVD’s have sold 150,000 to 200,000 units in their first two weeks out.

– One of the reasons that Windham Rotunda, known as Husky Harris on NXT, was given a shot on season 2 and not his brother, Bo Rotunda in FCW, is because WWE doesn’t want anyone under 21 years of age on the main roster. Bo is 20 years old while Husky is 23.

– WWE returns to Tokyo, Japan on August 20th and 21st for shows at Budokan Hall. The top two stars being advertised are John Cena and Yoshi Tatsu, followed by Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, Ted DiBiase, Sheamus, Maryse, The Bella Twins, William Regal, Mark Henry, The Miz, John Morrison, Zack Ryder and The Hart Dynasty. Big Show and Rey Mysterio are being advertised as special guests from SmackDown.
