– William Regal wrote the following on Twitter today regarding reports of his retirement:

“Can I please make this clear.I have never said I’m retiring.Not at the O2 last year nor this week.Not wrestle as much,yes,but not retire.”

“Nor have I been removed from NXT or the WWE.Not been in trouble either(shock I know).”

– Super Luchas Magazine out of Mexico, which has been a credible source in the past, has started the rumor online that current TNA star and #1 contender to their World Heavyweight Title Jeff Hardy is the man behind WWE’s cryptic January 2nd, 2012 videos and that Hardy will make his return to WWE soon.

A source close to Hardy and TNA reports that the rumor is just as it sounds – completely false.

– As Vickie Guerrero alluded to on Twitter this morning, WWE is set to debut a new stage at tonight’s live event. WWE champion CM Punk has posted a preview picture of the set. Punk just tweeted:

“A horrible sneak peek picture of the new house show…er…LIVE EVENT set. Looks much better in person.http://pic.twitter.com/XZ87l1Rv

— Wade Barrett has commented on the injury suffered by Randy Orton at Tuesday night’s SmackDown tapings, which took place during their street fight (airing this Friday night). Barrett tweeted:

“Look, what happened at the taping was tragic. However, there are inherent risks in our profession. Play with fire, you get burned.”

– WWE Magazine is now available on the iPad.

– The December 24th episode of WWE’s AM RAW scored a 0.89 rating with 1,126,000 viewers.

– ESPN’s E:60 documentary on Scott Hall from earlier this year is nominated for Sports Illustrated’s “Best News Feature on a Sports Program” award in their 2011 Media Awards. SI.com wrote:

“The superhero physique he had during his days in the WWE is long gone. Scott Hall is now 53 and says he takes 11 heart and seizure medications daily. He has a pacemaker and says he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. He looks shockingly frail. In October, E:60 aired a 16-minute piece on one of the more interesting figures in pro wrestling history, given his fame and self-destructive nature. For those of us of a certain age, it was a devastating portrait, a man wrecked by drug addiction and alcoholism. There’s no narrator and no reporter fronting the piece, which adds to the sullen mood. Lead producer Ben Houser and associate producer John Minton III are to be commended for their work. Same with the terrific job of video editing by Bluefoot Entertainment’s Matt McCormick.”
