— WWE.com also has a look at Brock Lesnar’s lawsuit against WWE and whether Paul Heyman’s involvement in the lawsuit has anything to do with his personal vendetta against the company. Here are some excerpts from the article…
Following the abysmal ECW December to Dismember pay-per-view in 2006, a very public disagreement about who was to blame for the subpar show saw Heyman part ways with WWE either by resignation or termination, depending on whether you ask Heyman or WWE. Heyman remained publicly silent about his acrimonious split from WWE. Did Heyman sign a non-disclosure and non-disparagement agreement or was the Extreme mastermind simply biding his time until an opportunity for vengeance materialized or both?”
“From a business standpoint, as a representative of Lesnar’s, recouping even a small percentage of Lesnar’s seven-figure contract is a nice commission for Heyman. The question is: Does Heyman (who turned down multiple offers to return to wrestling during his five-year absence from WWE, indicating income is not an issue for him) relish suing WWE as personal payback rather than a pecuniary payday?”
— Following the news of John Cena’s divorce breaking last week, it has been said that WWE officials are doing whatever they can behind the scenes to keep Cena upbeat and positive.
— As previously reported, Kane vs. Zack Ryder will be the free Over the Limit pre-PPV match on YouTube. WWE officials were impressed with the viewership numbers for the Extreme Rules Youtube pre-show last month and from now on, the PPV pre-matches will likely become a regular feature. WWE is also making money from the relationship and the feeling is that they will be posting even more content on their Youtube channel.
