– Damien Sandow is headed to London for Tuesday’s WWE SmackDown tapings. It’s possible he will make his TV debut this week or he may just be used for another vignette and dark match.
– The sweepstakes for a free trip to WrestleMania 29 in New Jersey has ended. WWE launched the giveaway on April 1st and announced the 100 winners last night.
– WWE’s website has a new storyline interview up with John Laurinaitis, looking at his decision to bring Brock Lesnar back. Laurinaitis said about his latest acquisition:
“Brock has achieved incredible success on every level. He’s the only athlete to ever win the WWE Championship, the UFC Heavyweight Championship and an NCAA Division I Heavyweight Championship. Quite frankly, I couldn’t imagine a better man than Brock more suited to be the face of WWE. No offense to John Cena, who’s an outstanding athlete in his own right, but he’s no Brock Lesnar.”
