– Embedded below is this week’s SmackDown Backstage Fallout:
– Rob Van Dam was asked on Twitter about returning to the WWE. RVD replied, “Soon enough but not too soon.”
– Wednesday’s episode of WWE Main Event averaged 1.209 million viewers.
– Local advertisements in Pittsburgh list John Cena and Randy Orton as champions for The Royal Rumble. Those ads were most likely produced before the Survivor Series. The description for The Royal Rumble on InDemand, which was also released before the Survivor Series, alluded to two champions after the event as well:
“Don’t miss John Cena, CM Punk, The Shield, and all your favorite WWE Superstars as they compete for the right to face the WWE or World Heavyweight Champion in the ultimate battle at WWE Royal Rumble, Sunday, January 26, at 8PMET/5PMPT.”
