Foley In Backstage Argument?, Cyber Sunday Buyrate, Punk

Ryan Clark


Despite all the hype of WWE garnering 13,189,061 total votes for Cyber Sunday, the preliminary estimate has the show doing 191,000 pay-per-view buys, which would be the second lowest mark of the year, trailing only One Night Stand. Furthermore, Cyber Sunday drew only 118,000 buys from North America alone. This show featured Shawn Michaels’ big return and an Undertaker vs. Batista title match with Stone Cold, JBL or Mick Foley as the special guest referee. Last year’s show, which was built around the battle of World Champions, drew 226,000 total buys.

Mick Foley and Michael Hayes got into a major argument during a recent filming of the WWE Legends show for WWE 24/7. It is not known as to when it will air, but the subject matter concerns the Vince McMahon death angle from earlier in the year. Foley was adamant that the angle was in bad taste. Michael Hayes, one of the main people on the creative team, strongly argued in defense of the angle.

Boston.com has an entertaining article up featuring Rey Mysterio, CM Punk and Layla just before the Smackdown/ECW tapings in Boston this past Tuesday.

Kevin Edwards sent this in: The WWE Shopzone has put up the Royal Rumble Vol. 3 & 4 sets up for pre-order, and according to the description, both will include the Chris Benoit matches.

Jason Brown sent this in: While I was not in attendance I noticed a few thing about the beer bash as well. CM Punk was 100% drinking a Pepsi (I can confirm this), I noticed that William Regal was drinking a Coke…So perhaps CM Punk was doing the same. Also I noticed HHH pour beer on Mickie James just before they poured beer on Mr. McMahon.
