As reported earlier today, Voices: WWE The Music, Vol. 9 debuted at No. 11 on the Top 200 Current Albums Chart this week, selling approximately 25,000 to 26,000 albums. Music industry expert Mike Omansky had this to say regarding the album's sales figures: "I would be disappointed with 25,0006 units if I were WWE. Usually the first week is the best week, unless there is some massive retail effort that I'm unaware of. And then it starts the descent. The 25,006 includes the special effort at Best Buy. Also, this CD will not be a big money maker, more of an image thing within the massive WWE Universe."
The WWE website is kicking off Black History Month with a look at former Superstar S.D. "Special Delivery" Jones, who passed away this past October. His profile has been added to the WWE Alumni section.
