– As I reported yesterday here on the site, Bryan Alvarez is reporting that those close to Floyd Mayweather feel like he has some type of deal with WWE that will extend past WrestleMania XXIV. While I cannot confirm what Alvarez is reporting I have been told that Shane McMahon has been very pleased with the Mayweather/Big Show angle and has pitched ideas to do more storylines involving shoot style fighting. One source told me that Shane loves how realistic the angle has came off especially how it looked at Raw two weeks ago.
WWE shipped 273,000 DVDs in the month of January, which is down 24% from the same period a year ago, reports Dave Meltzer. Sales are expected to pick up with the releases of the new Steve Austin and Triple DVD sets.
– Paul London has alot of backstage heat. London’s smile during the Mr. McMahon explosion angle did himself no favors.
– Is it even possible that WWE hall of famer Jerry “The King” Lawler has never wrestled at Wrestlemania?
