– WWE has plans for a heel SmackDown! champion for early next year. Thus, if JBL does not walk out of Armageddon with the title, he, or another heel, will likely regain the title by Royal Rumble.
– Most backstage are hoping Jesus vs. John Cena is kept rather short, as their past matches were reportedly far from spectacular.
– Mike Mizanin was told by some people in WWE that all he needs to do at Armageddon is last through the first round, and he’ll have a good shot at eliciting votes based on his “effort.” He obviously is not expected to win, but because Puder is not a fantastic boxer, it is possible that Mizanin can lose and still look decent. Whether that will win him enough votes remains to be seen.
