- Unlike most WWF wrestlers of the 1980s, Tito Santana never joined WCW as a full-time performer. Speaking to The Wrestler (magazine available at PWI-Online.com), Santana explained why he he never gave any serious thought to joining the former Atlanta-based league after leaving the WWF in 1993.

– Due to timing constraints, no WWE Superstars matches were taped at Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday’s television tapings. Instead, this week’s episode features Raw’s best moments of 2012 – including the Slammys, The Rock concert vs. John Cena’s rap and the Brock Lesnar’s return. Highlights from the episode are available here.

– According to WrestlingFigs.com, Brodus Clay, Naomi and Cameron will appear at Fry’s Electronics Store 6845 S Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas, Nevada, on Monday, January 28, 2013 beginning at noon. Call 702-932-1400 for more information.

“No, no, because going to WCW, I’d have to be away from home and on the road again,” said Santana, who to this day continues to compete at independent events. “Once I left the WWF, I had no desire to be on the road.”

Santana also revealed that he parted ways with the WWF due to management opting not promote his “El Matador” persona.

“[WWF] decided not to go to Spain, Mexico, and South America, and that was the end of Tito Santana,” said Santana. “I called the merchandising department. I wanted to know how they were going to merchandise El Matador. They didn’t have any merchandise planned. I told my wife that if they weren’t going to do anything with me, then I should hang it up.”
