– WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross was asked on Twitter today whether he will be calling the Royal Rumble or WrestleMania 28 this year. JR responded @JRsBBQ:

“Not up to me. Im ready if called upon.”

— ESPN’s financial expert Michele Steele tweeted on Tuesday that John Cena was worth $106 million in retail value to WWE in 2011.

No further details were given to explain Cena’s direct impact on WWE’s business, but the figure likely includes John Cena merchandise and an estimate of Cena’s impact on PPV buyrates, live event ticket sales and ad revenue from WWE programming featuring Cena.

With that kind of money rolling in due to , its understandable how WWE would be hesitant turning him heel and disrupting a formula that is working very well.

— Beth Phoenix tweeted the following regarding her status at Monday’s RAW:

“For those wondering I was backstage ready to walk out to face @EveMarieTorres on Raw last night when Kane’s entrance went off…there are few things quite like the aura and fear Kane’s brings. So if he wanted @EveMarieTorres I wasnt gonna get in the way. Sorry @ZackRyder.”

— Jim Ross answered more fan questions from Twitter on Tuesday. When asked how Flair can be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame (agian) as part of the Four Horsement, Ross responded:

“Easily. It would indirectly get TNA more publicity. Already has.”

Whether Christian will induct Edge into the Hall of Fame:

“That would be my guess. Makes sense.”

Regarding the debut of the “Funkasaurus” Brodus Clay, Ross wrote:

“I’m a Brodus Clay fan. Been around long enough to not judge anything on its 1st appearance. He’s going to apparently be a fan fav. Relax.”
