- Crossfire Entertainment out of Nashville, Tennessee recently mailed out contracts to several wrestlers. Local talents are being given $30,000 per year deals and were told that the company is being backed by Paramount and will air their show on national TV. Crossfire recently held their first HD/3D TV tapings and will hold the second set of tapings on January 5th, 2013. No word yet on when or where the first set of tapings will air. They have had some buzz online lately but it remains to be seen how far they will go. Stars booked for their January tapings include Roddy Piper, Carlito, Matt Hardy, Colt Cabana, Maria Kanellis, Kid Kash, Jerry Lynn, Shane Helms, Chris Masters, Reby Sky, Jillian Hall and others.
- WWE's Saturday Morning Slam show is averaging a 0.7 cable rating with 1.10 million viewers each week, which are very good numbers for a Saturday show.
