- WWE officials are said to be on the fence about SmackDown Superstar Antonio Cesaro, formerly known as Claudio Castagnoli on the independents. He’s considered by some to be a “now or never” talent and the hope is that he will have a breakout moment here soon.

- WWE is currently spending around $820,000 per TV taping. This is up from the $735,000 per taping they were spending the same time last year.

- To get an idea of where WWE’s revenue streams come from, here’s a breakdown by region:

* 74.4% from North America in April-June 2012, up from 72.2% in April-June 2011.

* 17.1% from Europe, the Middle East and Africa in April-June 2012. Down from 18.2% in April-June 2011.
