Sheamus’ IC Title Shot Nixed, Recent WWE Attendance, Hector Garza Remembered On Raw
- At one point, WWE was going to do Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett for the Intercontinental Title on last night’s episode of Main Event. That match was changed to Sheamus vs. Antonio Cesaro, likely because Barrett left for Japan this week to do promotional work for WWE.
- The April 29th RAW had 289,000 homes watching on DVR or tape delay. The May 6th RAW had 363,000 homes watching on DVR or tape delay and the May 13th show had 305,000 homes watching on a delay.
