Following the NXT invasion on RAW, there are plans for John Cena to feud with Wade Barrett for the WWE championship this summer. The match could headline a summer pay-per-view and would be another example of WWE shooting another young star to the top in a feud with John Cena, ala Sheamus.
Speaking of John Cena, he is still scheduled to appear at this week's live WWE events, but WWE will likely want to sell the beatdown he suffered on RAW - so he may not wrestle this week.
Attendance figures are in for WWE's recent European tour are in and the numbers are not good. This tour averaged 6,600 paid fans per show while last year's tour averaged 8,100 paid fans per show - a decline of 18.5%. Considering the fact that WWE has relied on the strength of its international business when business has been down in the United States, this is something to be concerned about.
