- For those of us still upset that WWE decided to take the WWE Championship off The Miz just 5 months into his first reign - we've got some good news about his standing in the company.
Unlike other young WWE stars who were given a top title and then had it taken away quickly (Sheamus, Jack Swagger), John Cena winning the WWE championship is not a sign that they've lost faith in The Miz as a main eventer. The company is very pleased with how he carried himself as champion.
In fact, WWE recently informed a number of their business partners that The Miz will remain one of the company's top superstars in the coming year.
- Following the blockbuster success of WrestleMania 27, WWE is looking for The Rock to make more television appearances in the coming months. WWE is looking to have The Rock appear at SummerSlam (possibly as a guest referee in John Cena's match) - because they've seen how much of an impact that The Rock's involvement has on TV ratings and PPV buyrates.
- THQ announced during their conference call last week that the most recent SmackDown vs. RAW and the new WWE All Stars video games shipped over 4 million units total. By comparison, THQ's most recent UFC Undisputed game shipped 3 million units.
THQ posted a $44.1 million loss in the fourth quarter of their fiscal year and a total loss of $136.1 million for the whole fiscal year.
- WWE is currently scouting talent in the UK - with an emphasis on big, muscular guys.
