– Another reason for WWE officials being disappointed in Sin Cara going out is because they have no Superstars on TV wearing masks during the Holiday season, where masks are a big seller. WWE also had a big stunt planned for Sin Cara at the 2012 Royal Rumble that obviously won’t be happening.

– As noted before, WWE has plans to put Primo, Hunico, Epico and Rosa Mendes together. The team is being set up for a run with the WWE Tag Team Titles.

– Alberto Del Rio had actually been planned to lose the WWE Title at Survivor Series for a while. Back when he first won it, the long term plan was for CM Punk to win it at Survivor Series. The loss and win back between John Cena was thrown in while Del Rio’s reign was going on.

– In an update on John Morrison’s departure, his contract actually expired back in the summer but he agreed to an extension through the end of November. It was reportedly Morrison’s decision to leave WWE.

– As noted before, WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young was brought to Monday’s RAW Supershow but not used on TV. She also filmed a segment for Tuesday’s live SmackDown but that wasn’t used either. Mae did however appear in a WWE website video with Zack Ryder.

– Last night’s live WWE Super SmackDown special did a 2.0 cable rating, up from the previous three Friday night shows. The show averaged 3.05 million viewers.

– Former WWE announcer Todd Grisham will be hosting an American Kennel Club special on ABC in January of 2012.

– The new storyline for NXT Rookie Derrick Bateman is that Teddy Long has signed him to a temporary contract for the Smackdown brand. Johnny Curtis is currently involved in a love triangle angle on NXT with Bateman and Maxine.

– WWE shipped 265,000 DVD units in October 2011, up 6% from October 2010. The top shipped WWE DVD’s for the year so far are WrestleMania 27 with 232,000 units shipped, Best of WCW Nitro with 138,000 shipped, History of WrestleMania with 120,000 shipped, DX One Last Stand with 109,000 shipped and Randy Orton’s DVD with 102,000 shipped.

– As noted before, WWE officials are open to the idea of a Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust match. Word now is that they aren’t too keen on holding it at WrestleMania 28, but are open to it.
