WWE Making Millions Off New Main Event TV Show, Update on Sales for WWE ’13, The Rockers Reuniting, Extreme Rising News, Reby Sky Responds to Sunny Again, Says All Respect Is Gone

Pre-orders for the WWE ’13 video game continue to be much higher than they were last year. As of last week, they were up 171% – which is 170% on Xbox 360, 189% on Playstation 3 and 84% on the Nintendo Wii. The numbers are being attributed to CM Punk’s involvement with the game and the recent segment on RAW, the game’s Attitude Era features and the social media push that has been behind the game.
– WWE is likely earning several million dollars per year from the Ion Network for the new Main Event TV show that premieres in October. WWE’s costs to produce the show will be minimal since most of the costs of the taping are already fixed since the crew and talent have to be in for the main tapings anyway.
The show will likely do ratings a bit better than Superstars was doing on WGN America. Ion averages a 0.7 rating in primetime but only a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.1 million viewers. Among broadcast networks, Ion is the 8th most popular in the United States.
– Reby Sky and Taya Parker have been added to this weekend’s Extreme Rising events. The shows will take place on Friday, June 29th in Corona, NY (Queens) and Saturday, June 30th in Philadelphia, PA.
– The Big Event announced that Shawn Michaels will be a platinum guest at their convention on October 6th at the Courtyard Marriott hotel in East Elmhurst, NY. Marty Jannetty will also be at the event, and you can get photos with the Rockers for $100. Maryse, Ashley Massaro and Buff Bagwell will also be at the convention.

– Matt Hardy’s girlfriend Reby Sky is back with another Facebook post, talking about the Twitter war with Sunny that was started after Reby lashed out at Psycho Sid and Sunny defended Sid. Here is Reby’s latest:
“Checked my facebook before bed & this is what I see from Sunny: “Not worried about your response” | Refreshes page over & over responding to fan-girls & posts multiple times |
Look, the internet can implode & tell me I have no right to my own opinion, but I’m not backing down from anything I’ve said. There aren’t “sides” here, but if there were, SOLELY based on what my issue with Sid was – which was no-showing / disappointing fans / not keeping his word on bookings – and you “hate” me because of what I said, you’re implying it’s OK to do those things, the reason being, because he’s a “legend”. Don’t be a mark. There are plenty of “legends” who are pieces of sh*t. Being a “legend” doesn’t make you a good person. Moreover, I don’t need to be 900 years old or employed by any particular company to be able to have/voice an opinion. And the bigger question is, WHO CARES what I have to say ? Ran out of people to pick on, Sunny ?
I stand by my friends through thick & thin but when they’ve done something undeniably wrong I’m not going to justify it when its criticized & that’s exactly what Sunny has done. You’re buddies. Good for you. But your “buddy” has been screwing over a whole lot of fans & promotors – You’re going to back THAT up ? The last shred of respect I tried to hold on to having for you (after discovering you literally sucked Sabu’s dick for somas) is gone.
If people dislike me for some other reason, then by all means, continue to rant on and on about it; You deserve the right to express your opinion as much as I do (although today, people seem to have forgotten I have a right to my own) … but if you’re going to hate me because I said people NO-SHOWING makes me sick then you’re just as bad as he is.”
