— Shawn Michaels will be out of action a little while longer since his knees are really banged up. Raw is quite loaded on the face side following Batista’s return, so this is probably the best time for him to take some time off. No word yet on how much longer he will be out, but people inside the company speculated he could be out until late July, for the start of the build-up of SummerSlam.
— WWE’s Legends of Wrestlemania reportedly sold 86,484 units in its first week out, which put it at No. 8 on the charts. In comparison, Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 did approximately double that number in its first week out while TNA iMPACT! did about 34,000 in sales.
— Recent attendance figures: 4/15 Raw in Dublin, Ireland drew a sellout of just under 9,000 fans paying $700,000; a second Raw live event in Dublin on 4/16 drew a sellout of just under 9,000 fans paying $700,000; 4/17 Raw in Glasgow, Scotland drew a sellout of 6,500; 4/19 Raw in Nottingham, England drew a sellout 9,000 fans; 4/16 SmackDown/ECW in Cologne, Germany drew 10,000 fans paying $800,000; and 4/19 SmackDown/ECW in Vienna, Austria drew a sellout of 10,000.
