Another Dish Network/WWE update to follow up what timster posted earlier.

According to PWInsider.com, when a reader called DISH Network to ask about the availability of this Sunday night's WWE Elimination Chamber PPV, the caller was told "Dish is no longer offering WWE PPVs." When the caller asked if this had anything to do with the WWE Network launching, a DISH manager responded by saying "no comment." As of this writing, DISH is still making no mention of WWE PPV events on its PPV listing page.

It was reported last fall that indie veteran Joey Ryan participated in a WWE tryout camp at the Performance Center, just a few months after he was released from TNA. Ryan was not offered a contract and later said in an interview that WWE felt like he was too old and experienced to be in developmental.

 
A few weeks back in January, Ryan tweeted the following comments and made references to NXT trainer Bill DeMott and John Laurinaitis:

Ryan also posted a screenshot of his e-mail reply to WWE?s Senior Director of Talent Development, presumably former beach volleyball player Canyon Ceman, who told him he was too experienced to hire. Here?s what Ryan wrote in the e-mail:

WWE released their Q4 2013 and Full Year financial results on Thursday morning. Here are the final pay-per-view buy rates:

  • Battleground in October: 114,000
  • Hell in a Cell in October: 228,000 (up from 199,000 in 2012)
  • Survivor Series in November: 177,000 (down from 208,000 in 2012)
  • TLC in December: 181,000 (up from 175,000 in 2012)
Without factoring in WWE Battleground (which was a new pay-per-view in 2013), WWE sold 586,000 buyrates in the quarter, up from 582,000 in 2012.
 
The buyrate for Hell in a Cell was the show?s best since it debuted in 2009 ? and the Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton main event outdrew the John Cena vs. Randy Orton WWE World Heavyweight Championship Unification match by a wide margin (26%).
 
Overall, you can see that pay-per-view is no longer a growth sector for WWE, which makes it an opportune time for WWE to transition those shows to the WWE Network.

 

One in the eye for Daniel Bryan's detractors there.

During a World Wrestling Entertainment conference call today, Vince McMahon, CEO of WWE, publicly commented on CM Punk for the first time since his departure from the company almost three weeks ago.

Vince McMahon issued his first public comments on CM Punk?s WWE departure since he apparently quit the company last month.

When asked about Punk?s status on today?s WWE earnings call, McMahon said that Punk was on a ?sabbatical, let?s just put it that way.?

PPV is no longer a growth area? Sure because their product these days is gabage. If it were better more people would be interested and buy it.

Unfortunately their current product is aimed at 8 year olds and they cannot buy PPVs.

Guess WWE's easing off the sign censorship now...

Also, Vegemite Vixen would be a bonzer nickname for Emma.

According to The Wrestling Observer, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is the leading candidate for the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015.

 
It's being said that the induction is a done deal, and it all depends on if The Rock wants it or not.

It's being reported that Chris Hero's name has been brought up within TNA Impact Wrestling but the talks reportedly aren't very serious at this time.

Hero was also known as Kassius Ohno in WWE's NXT developmental territory and is a former ROH World Tag Team Champion with Claudio Castagnoli, better known as current WWE Superstar Antonio Cesaro.

Well, at least they're looking at the right people, but yeah, Hero probably won't go, especially as he's currently in the world title picture at ROH since he returned.
