– As noted before, John Cena’s Facebook page recently added it’s 9,000,000th fan, making him the #8 most-followed athlete on Facebook.

WWE also promoted today the fact that Cena recently acquired over 1 million Twitter followers. However, a quick look at Cena’s Twitter page shows he’s about 500 followers short of 1,000,000.

– As noted before, The Rock will make his decision regarding teaming with John Cena at Survivor Series on this coming Monday’s Halloween RAW Supershow.

WWE has revealed that The Rock’s Survivor Series decision will kick off Monday’s RAW. We noted before that officials were talking about getting Rock to appear live this Monday but at last word, he will just appear via video but that could always change.

— Alex Riley is still working through a hip injury he suffered during WWE’s tour of Mexico earlier this month. He underwent an MRI following the tour and was cleared to wrestle this past week. He returned to action at Tuesday’s SmackDown taping as he took part in the post-broadcast 41-Man Battle Royal.

— Shelly Martinez stated on Twitter she will be hosting a dating show. She wrote, “I am so stoked Got film dates for a new project!! I will b a segment host on a new dating web series Details soon!!”

— Maryse Ouellet celebrated her release from WWE’s shackles Friday at a night club in Los Angeles, California. She posted a photo on Twitter of a cake that reads “Congratulations on your release Maryse Be Sexy.” She captioned the pic as “lets get this party started.”

Meanwhile, Eve Torres praised her longtime rival. She tweeted, “(Maryse) is an incredible performer & a beautiful woman inside & out. She taught me how to have fun in the ring. #ThankYouMaryse.”

According to WWE’s updated monthly Key Performance business figures, September’s Night of Champions pay-per-view (featuring Triple H’s in-ring return against CM Punk) drew only 165,000 pay-per-view buys.

By comparison, this number is dead even with last year’s Night of Champion event.

WWE has been doing approximately 64% of PPV buys from the United States, so applying that figure to the Night of Champions buyrate, the show did approximately that translates to roughly 105,000 buys from the United States and 60,000 buys internationally.
