— WWE has a poll asking fans who they want Batista to fight when he returns. The options are Randy Orton, John Cena, CM Punk, Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose and Big E. Langston. With almost 10,000 votes already cast, Orton leads with 36%, followed by Lesnar (33%) and Cena (12%).
— The December 23 episode of RAW brought in 3,821,000 viewers. This is down from last week’s 4,152,000, but it was a taped show that aired just before Christmas so it’s not surprising that it fell some.
The show had 3,893,000 viewers in hour one, 3,959,000 viewers in hour two and 3,610,000 viewers in hour three.
