- Over the weekend, WWE officials were re-writing this week's SmackDown after realizing that it will go head-to-head with the debut of the new season of UFC's Ultimate Fighter. The two shows will go head-to-head this Friday and again on June 1st for the TUF finals.
- As noted last week, former WWE Superstar Carlito defended The Rock against backstage heat and said the WWE talents should be happy that The Rock is making WrestleMania a success. Carlito wondered if any other WWE stars could sell out WrestleMania besides The Rock. Carlito later added the following, throwing in a joke about CM Punk:
"Oh, and I meant wrestlers on today's roster. Of course stone cold with the right angle could sell mania out.
"Punk sell out mania? He cant even get backstage at madison square garden! Oh snap!....that was just a joke b%*es!
"The problem with john cena is that he has carried the company on his back for years and now people are sick of him."
A fan asked Carlito if he could sell out WrestleMania. Carlito said he could, if it were held in a bingo hall.
