- WWE NXT Diva Devin Taylor appeared on the season opener of The Bachelor on January 4th. She appeared under her real name Brittany Fetkin but she was referred to as a WWE Diva in training. Devin was eliminated on the first episode.
- The January 4th WWE live event in Hidalgo, Texas drew around 6,000 fans and Monday's RAW from Corpus Christi was a sellout with 7,000 fans.
- WWE Hall of Famer Big John Studd's son John Minton Jr. did indeed work a WWE tryout match at last night's TV tapings in Laredo, Texas. As noted, Minton has been training with Booker T in Houston. He was actually on the 2004 Tough Enough competition but did not make it to the top 10. The downside for Minton is that he's in his early to mid 30's and WWE usually doesn't sign rookie talents at that age.
