Sheamus Praised Backstage, WWE's Plan To Fix PPV Buyrates
-- One idea being tossed around within WWE recently in a way to fix slumping PPV buyrates is to go back to holding a live pre-game show to push late buys for the event. The company used to do this for years and later dropped it when it wasn't considered to be cost effective.
-- The Miz spent his birthday in Australia this week as the former United States champion and current Mr. Money In The Bank was nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award in the Baddest Baddie category. However The Miz left Down Under empty handed, well, maybe with just his MITB briefcase, as he failed to win the award during the show held in Sydney on Friday night. X Factor Australia judge Kyle Sandilands won the award beating out Glee's Jane Lynch, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse's Xavier Samuel and of course Mr. Awesome himself.
