RC sent word that Sheamus and Chris Jericho are being advertised for a car show at the Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA (site of the Royal Rumble) tomorrow. It is widely expected that Sheamus will return from his injury as a surprise entrant tomorrow. Jericho has said on his Twitter he will be in and out of Pittsburgh in the same day. Given how he likes to work folks, and also that it's the biggest time of the year and the Network is coming, I expect to see Y2J tomorrow night.
As he mentioned on the interview we posted on the site yesterday, CM Punk is at tonight's UFC event in Chicago, IL. He is sitting next to one of the UFC owners, Lorenzo Fertitta.
WWE announced today that a limited number of seats have been released for The Rumble. They were made available after they got things set up for the PPV tomorrow. You can go to Ticketmaster.com if you are interested.
Seth Rollins did an interview with Talking With Soup where he said that during a recent match he had to take a leak so he did it in a plastic bottle under the ring. Wow. You can check it out, if you wish, by clicking here. And I meant check out the interview, not Rollins taking a leak.
Bobby V sent this item. ... Radio advertising for the 3/18 Smackdown taping in Houston, TX has announced a (probably) main event of John Cena/Daniel Bryan/CM Punk vs. Bray Wyatt/Kane/Alberto Del Rio.
Kane is an interesting name. As I mentioned on today's show, I would not be shocked at all to see him return to action at tomorrow's PPV. WrestleMania is coming and he should have a match on the show.
