Chris Jericho recently had the following to say about his second book that is coming out: “I know how to write a book now, and to not concentrate on negative things. Iâ<80><99>m not going to talk crap. Iâ<80><99>m not bitter about anything. Youâ<80><99>re not gonna like everyone that you meet. If I win at the end of the story, whatâ<80><99>s the point?” The second book is said to be about Jericho’s WWE debut, leaving the company, and the decision to return.

The “Smackdown vs. Raw” video game sales in 2007 were $232 million, up from $166 million in 2006 and $135 million in 2005. The increase is most likely due to the fact that it debuted on the PS3, Wii and DS last year. Given that this was almost 25% of THQ’s revenue for the entire year, you know they hate the idea of losing the franchise in 2010 when WWE leaves. THQ picked up UFC and although their games will do well, more than likely, it isn’t expected to match WWE at all.
