WWE WrestleFest Not Returning, Zack Ryder and Eve’s Storyline, HBK’s eBook, Jim Ross Says No Benoit In HOF

December 28, 2011   ·   0 Comments

Shawn Michaels’ new eBook titled “Diary of a Heartbreak Kid: Shawn Michaels’ Journey into the WWE Hall of Fame” has officially been released through Amazon, iBooks and Barnes & Noble.

– The storyline between Eve Torres and WWE United States Champion Zack Ryder is expected to continue for a few weeks at least.

– As noted yesterday, WWE has registered to trademark WrestleFest, the name of a popular WWF arcade game. WWE is not bringing back the WrestleFest title. The reason for the trademark filing is WWE got wind of an outside project that was in the works. WWE sent a cease-and-desist letter to those working on the project and filed the trademark.

– Dave Meltzer stated on the December 24 edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that the Survivor Series pay-per-view buy figure is lower than the initial estimate of 280,000. It was reported that of that figure, 180,000 pay-per-view purchases came from the United States. The updated estimate drops the buy figure to 260,000 as only 160,000 pay-per-view purchases came from the United States for The Rock’s first wrestling match in over seven years.

The estimate compares to 244,000 buys for Survivor Series in 2010 and 235,000 in 2009, which nearly got the show scrapped from the annual pay-per-view line-up.

— Jim Ross commented on Chris Benoit’s candidacy for entrance into the WWE Hall of Fame.

“Chris Benoit will never be inducted into WWE HOF,” he tweeted Tuesday in response to whether it’s time for Benoit to be enshrined. “Great wrestler but horrific ending to his life overrides career.”

– Former WWE talent Shelly Martinez is featured in the trailer for The Social Rules, a new web series about the do’s and dont’s of dating and relating.

— Commercials in the Boston, Massachusetts area are advertising John Cena vs. Kane for the March 5, 2012 Raw Supershow at the TD Garden. It was also announced that CM Punk would be defending the WWE Championship.

— The Bella Twins appear at Don Beyer Kia located at 7416 Richmond Highway Alexandria, Virginia 22306 this Thursday beginning at 2:00 p.m.

— WWE developmental wrestler Seth Rollins, who was scheduled to work this week’s Raw house show tour, will instead appear on SmackDown events this week.
