Backstage News On AJ Styles And WWE - ROH, WWE Attendance, Another Wrestling Fed On SportsCenter

- This is interesting due to the ESPN – WWE relationship but ESPN's SportsCenter was recently filming for a story on Lucha Underground.

- As noted, AJ Styles will make his final Ring of Honor appearance this Saturday night in Duluth, Georgia for a farewell segment and autograph signing. Styles' deal with WWE is far enough that ROH is not allowed to air footage from the Styles farewell on TV, at least at this point.

- Below are recent WWE attendance figures:

* January 14th in Milwaukee for NXT drew a sellout of 750 fans
* January 15th in Green Bay for NXT drew 2,000 fans
* January 15th in New Delhi, India drew 11,500 fans
