– Chael Sonnen was said to have a meeting scheduled with Michael Cole on August 11. That is when Smackdown tapes in Portland and that’s where Chael lives. The meeting was set up by Canyon Ceman and Gerald Brisco. Of course, Chael claimed that he was meeting with WWE people back in San Jose during WrestleMania weekend. He did meet with WWE people in San Jose but it was nothing formal.
– Brock Lesnar and John Cena segments averaging 500,000 views on YouTube. The Undertaker’s return at Battleground was watched by over 3 million people on YouTube and the brawl between Brock Lesnar and Undertaker was watched by 2.5 million viewers on YouTube. I’m sure some of those people watched Raw and just wanted to see it again but I’ll bet that a large portion of those views are coming from people that no longer watch WWE and someone shared the video with them and their curiosity led them to watching.
