- We noted yesterday that John Cena has been selling 5 times the merchandise of the #2 seller in WWE lately. With CM Punk gone, that #2 seller is Daniel Bryan.

- A correction on Rey Mysterio, his knee is actually fine and hasn't been giving him problems lately. He's out of action with a hand injury. WWE is still expected to sign Rey to a new deal soon but for the first time in years, his merchandise numbers aren't near the top.

- WWE pay-per-view advances are looking strong right now. Extreme Rules on May 4th is set up for 14,000 fans and is almost sold out. Payback on June 1st is set up for 11,000 and is almost sold out as well. Money in the Bank on June 29th has sold 10,000 tickets with just 2,000 still available.
