– WWE Games noted on Twitter that according to their data, CM Punk is the #1 most played Superstar in the new WWE ’12 video game.

– WWE is expected to quietly do away with WWE Classics On Demand and not make a formal announcement. Most of the content such as the Legends Roundtables will be moved over to the new WWE Network in 2012.

– WWE officials wanted both Lita and Trish Stratus to present the Divalicious Slammy on Monday’s RAW, sort of as a way to endorse Kelly Kelly. Trish turned them down because of the traveling. There is no heat on her from turning the offer down and she’s still on good terms with WWE, she just did not want to travel from Canada for what would have been a quick appearance on the show.

– As noted before, this week’s Slammy RAW did a 2.84 cable rating over three hours and a 2.98 rating for the normal two hours, about the same as the previous week’s 2.97 rating.

RAW this week averaged 4.11 million viewers over the three hours. The first hour averaged 3.67 million, the second hour averaged 4.49 million and the third hour averaged 4.16 million viewers.

This week marks the 8th straight week and 12th out of the last 15 weeks where RAW has lost viewers in the final hour.

– The theme song being used in the new promos for the WWE Network is “Cinema (Skrillex Remix)” by Benny Benassi featuring Gary Go.

– Chris Jericho responded on Twitter to reports of a return feud with WWE Champion CM Punk and called them “bogus, weak journalism.”

A pre-sale begins this Friday for the 2012 WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view from Milwaukee at the Bradley Center. The pre-sale password is CAGE.

– WWE’s Tribute to the Troops special on the USA Network did a 1.92 cable rating with 2,767,000 viewers. Last night’s show did hours of 1.9 and 1.94. Viewership actually increased from hour one to hour two.
