– As noted earlier, Vince McMahon reportedly pulled WWE Champion CM Punk from escorting Chael Sonnen to the Octagon at UFC’s January 28th show on FOX from Chicago. Apparently Punk was also told that he shouldn’t even be in attendance at the show. Punk was told at Monday’s RAW and one source close to the situation described it as Vince just being in one of his moods. Sonnen reportedly got it cleared with UFC and Punk had it cleared with WWE but when it became a news story, WWE changed their minds.

The Rock completed filming on “Snitch” this weekend. Apparently the movie is scheduled to be released in 2013.

– WWE has a new job listing on WWE-Careers.com for an On-Air Announcer to be the “Face of WWE’s Live Event Promotions.” The job is based in Stamford, CT at WWE headquarters from Monday through Wednesday and requires one travel day per month. This job came open after Jack Korpela recently departed the company.

WWE has also removed their job listing for the head of the Network.

– Former WWE star “The Godfather” Charles Wright will be bringing back his Papa Shango character for a rare appearance at the Pro Wrestling Syndicate Super Card 2012 event on March 9th in Rahway, New Jersey. Shango will be posing with fans and signing autographs. For more information, visit prowrestlingsyndicate.com.

– After it was reported last week that new 19 year old FCW Diva Britani Knight may be held in WWE developmental for some time because of her age, her mother Sweet Saraya told The Norwich Evening News that WWE may fast-track her daughter to the main roster. She said:

“She is the first 19-year-old girl from Europe to venture into FCW, and I think they’ll fast-track her.”

– Chris Jericho came out for a segment at last night’s RAW live event in Sacramento, California but was interrupted by Jack Swagger. Swagger ended up in the Walls of Jericho to end it.

Matches to note at last night’s RAW live event saw Brodus Clay defeat Tyler Reks and “Ryback” Skip Sheffield beat Alex Riley.
