— WWE’s latest international tour may end up being the most profitable in company history. WWE has been running two shows everyday throughout the tour and ticket prices for those shows are expensive to say the least as WWE always marks them up. The Raw & SmackDown/ECW tapings both drew $1 million apiece, which is more than WCW ever drew at the gate for a single show. Merchandise is selling really well too.

— Dusty Rhodes, who now heads up the creative side of Florida Championship Wrestling, is getting rave reviews for his work in the promotion. Rhodes is said to very personable and comes off as if he wants to be there. Most everyone in FCW loves working with Rhodes.

— There has been talk of turning CM Punk heel, but since his merchandise is selling far better than someone in his position should be selling, some believe that he should be built up higher as a babyface. There has also been talk of Punk switching brands.
