— Last Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown drew a 2.18 (2.2) cable rating, with 3.03 million viewers. Those numbers are up 1% and even with last week’s 2.15 and 3.03 million viewers.
— Cody Rhodes’ wife Brandi has returned to using the name “Eden” in WWE NXT; she used the name Eden Stiles when she was previously signed to the company. She has been handling most of the ring announcing at recent house shows for the development brand.
— As noted earlier here on the website, the word going on within WWE right now is that CM Punk has failed to respond to phone calls and text messages sent to him by WWE executives.
The feeling is Punk is keeping to himself, short of a few people in his inner circle, and the belief is those who are in contact with Punk won’t be talking about the situation publicly.
