> RAW RATING- RAW scored a nice number for Monday's show, getting a 4.1 composite,
0.1 up from last week. Batista's interview segment was the highest rated
segment on the two hour show. More in-depth RAW and weekend ratings will
be out later this week.
> WM 22 LOCATION OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED- Earlier today WWE officially announced the location for next year's
WrestleMania - Rosemont's Allstate Arena. This will be the third time
that Mania will be held at the same location, the previous two being one
part of WrestleMania 2 and WrestleMania 13. A briefing with WWE
officials for the greater Chicago business community has been organized
by the Village of Rosemont and the Rosemont Chamber of Commerce for
tomorrow. "There were several communities interested in hosting
WrestleMania, but Rosemont provided the best package of incentives, and
was a sentimental favorite because of its great fans and the tremendous
experiences we have had there, particularly with past WrestleMania's. We
know Rosemont and the Chicago area are the type of location that will
continue to make WrestleMania an appointment event for our many fans
around the world," said Kurt Schneider, WWE's Executive Vice President
> WWE SENDS PRESS RELEASE ON HOGAN- WWE sent out a press release yesterday announcing Hulk Hogan being
inducted in the WWE Hall Of Fame next month in Los Angeles, CA. In the
press release they mention him as 'Hulk Hogan', where just recently any
references to the Hulkster on the WWE.COM website and television
broadcasts have been 'Hollywood Hogan'. This was due to the WWE vs
Marvel Comics lawsuit where Marvel insisted that the license to use the
name 'Hulk' expired for WWE. It's important for WWE to use the name
'Hulk' especially for their WWE 24/7 VOD service. It's not clear if the
lawsuit have been dropped or the two parties have agreed on some terms
but Hogan is back as Hulk Hogan for WWE.
> SMACKDOWN! PREVIEW- These matches have been taped for tonight's Smackdown! Eddie Guerrero
& Rey Mysterio vs Luther Reigns & Mark Jindrak; Booker T vs Heidenreich;
Rene Dupree & Dawn Marie vs Big Show & Michelle McCool; John Cena vs
Orlando Jordan for the US title.
> STOCKS- Stocks are trading at 12.45 at time of this writing, a 0.40% decrease
over yesterday's closing. The day's range so far has been 12.40 - 12.55.
> WWE VIDEOS ON BILLBOARD- The following videos are on Billboard's Top 10 Recreational Sports
chart for the week ending March 12. Rob Van Dam's 'One Of A Kind' is in
the third place, followed by 'New Year's Revolution 2004' in the fourth.
'Rise & Fall Of ECW' is in the sixth place in its 14th week on the chart
and 'Andre The Giant' is in ninth. All mentioned videos plus more can be
