Triple H tweeted the following about last night’s NXT Show in San Jose: “Thank you #NXTSanJose. I hope you enjoyed the show as much as I did. #FutureIsNow @WWENXT”

The show was recorded and I hope it makes its way onto the Network. All reports that I received about it said it was a great event. One item of note from the show is that Hideo Itami used the GTS for the first time, which of course had been CM Punk’s move. Itami has used it for years in Japan where he worked as KENTA.

CableV sent this item. … Barbie Blank/Kelly Kelly was shooting a reality show at WrestleCon yesterday morning.  If you were in line to get an autograph or photo, you were asked to sign a release to either let your image be used or not.  If you didn't want to be on the show, they would take your picture so that they could edited you out or blur your face.  We were told the show was for the E! network.  Both her and Maryse, was signing next to her, were mic'ed up for audio.  At least that I assume those wires running down their backs were.

WWE got some good publicity out of them having John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan and The Bellas taking a ride on a special WWE themed California line cable car in San Francisco. They ended up at the most awesome Fairmont Hotel, where I stayed a few weeks back during a trip to San Francisco. Love that city.

Ben Read sent this item. … I was just watching Sky Sports news when they did a bit on Wrestlemania and the Brits involved. The most interesting part of the interview was Bad News Barrett informing us why he no longer tells us he has some Bad News - "you know what I was kinda told by the powers that be that I had to knock it on the head for a while as too many people were joining in and cheering me for it so maybe we will bring it back after Wrestlemania but for now I have to be a bit quieter”.

DJ Ferris sent this note. … I was looking at the Network schedule for Sunday and at the top of the hour starting at 12 noon EST they have 5 minute live updates from Wrestlemania with the last one starting at 4 pm

@MikeFTR sent this item. … Regarding Jeff's item on Canadian customers logging into the WWE Network's mobile service, I don't believe that this is exclusive to Rogers customers. The registration page implies that it's open to all customers who have signed up with the TV provider of their choice, although not all providers (including mine) are available. This might be inconvenient, but this has never been advertised or suggested to be available separately from a cable subscription, and your tv bill is the only way to pay for the WWE Network in Canada at this time (without using a VPN service).
