— WWE has announced a SmackDown/ECW tour of Mexico for February. The tour will be headlined my Rey Mysterio and will begin on February 8th at Palacio de los Deportes. They will then head to Arena Monterrey on February 9th and Guadalajara on the 10th. Even though the event is several weeks away, the first day ticket sales for Mexico City are said to have been weak.

— Former head of WWE marketing Kurt Schneider (who now works for the Harlem Globetrotters) told the New York Times that he wants to turn the Globetrotters business into a similar business as WWE.

— Tonightâ<80><99>s edition of WWE Monday Night RAW will begin at 9 p.m. EST on The Score in Canada instead of its normal 9:15 timeslot. The replay will begin at 12:00 a.m., as usual.

— Late last night we announced the new SmackDown announce team (read that post if you donâ<80><99>t want to wait until SmackDown airs). Some people backstage are said to be unsure of Vince McMahonâ<80><99>s decision.
