- Here are some recent WWE attendance figures:
* RAW on October 5th in Everett, Washington drew 5,000 fans for $200,000
* RAW on October 6th in Yakima, WA drew 3,800 fans for $100,000

- We noted before that WWE live event head Raphael Morffi has been let go. He had been promoting live events in the Northeast. That job is now done by John Porco, who has worked with WWE for a long time. Morffi was considered a Shane McMahon guy and had a very good reputation in the New York sports community. It's said that Stephanie McMahon and Triple H are bringing in new executives, largely with experience with major sports organizations.
- John Cena has very limited usage of one of his arms because his recent surgery was more extensive than expected. Cena is doing everything he can to be ready for Hell In a Cell but several people in the company note that it is far from a lock. The decision will be made this week whether Cena will be ready or not.
