- Doug Getz, who was the Technical Director for WWE TV as well as HBO Boxing, passed away on December 28th. Getz was said to be very popular and understood how to survive and deal with Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn in a business where people come and go quickly. According to those who know the situation, Getz will be hard to replace, had great product knowledge and was a fun guy to be around.

- Regarding CM Punk seeming to show frustration online, people are noting that Punk always talks about leaving when he gets frustrated but the feeling is that he won’t leave, at least now.
