More on the Evan Bourne-HHH Story, WWE Divas Idea Nixed, WrestleMania, Update on FCW’s New 19 Year Old Diva, More

– There are near 8,000 tickets available for WrestleMania 28 on StubHub.

– People close to Evan Bourne say the stories about him having heat because of R-Truth’s suspension and the two drug test failures were unrelated. Regarding last week’s story, one claim is that it was Bourne who went to Triple H and apologized for failing the drug test – not Triple H confronting Bourne.

– After an article appeared on WWE’s website last week about the old Women’s Tag Team Titles, there was talk internally of creating a Divas Tag Team Title but the idea was shot down. The titles would have been mainly for The Bella Twins, who are being given more TV time.

The December 12th, 2011 Slammys RAW had 281,000 homes or 8.7% of the total viewers watching on DVR or tape delay. The December 19th show had 367,000 homes or 11.1%.

– Here are some recent WWE attendance figures:

* December 12th Slammys RAW from Norfolk, VA drew 6,369 fans for $202,240

* RAW on January 6th in Jackson, MS drew 7,000 fans for $200,000.

* RAW on January 7th in Tyler, TX drew 4,500 fans for $120,000.

* RAW on January 8th in San Angelo, TX drew 4,500 fans for $140,000.

* SmackDown on January 7th in Montgomery, AL drew 3,500 fans for $110,000.

* SmackDown on January 8th in Baton Rouge, LA drew 3,500 fans for $120,000.

– 19 year-old new FCW Diva Britani Knight, working as Saraya, may be held off the WWE main roster for some time because of her age. WWE has had an unofficial policy of late to not put anyone on the main roster until they turn 21. This is one of the reasons why Bo Rotundo, who is now 21, wasn’t featured on the earlier seasons of NXT.

– Due to the Holidays, we’re just now getting the breakdown for the January 2nd RAW Supershow which featured the return of Chris Jericho. RAW that night did a 3.11 rating with 4.43 million viewers. Here’s the breakdown:

The match with Cena, Big Show and Zack Ryder vs. Mark Henry and Jack Swagger plus the ending segment with Kane coming from under the ring gained 383,000 viewers – which is a low number for the overrun.
