Update On Legends At The Rumble, TLC Buyrate, Miz Doing Media



- December’s WWE TLC pay-per-view drew an estimated at 182,000 buys. That number, which is not finalized, is down from 195,000 buys in 2010 and down from 228,000 in 2008.

The preliminary report is based on the average buys reported for Q4 of 2012. The number will likely change, probably for the worse, when the official total is reported as the company includes “average current period buys” in their updated average for each PPV. The fourth quarter’s other events, Hell in a Cell, Vengeance and Survivor Series, all had higher buyrates.

- The Miz did a photoshoot with Men’s Fitness on Friday morning. After doing media appearances for WWE in Abu Dhabi this week, he is now in London for more promotional work.

- To follow up on the rumor that Sunday’s Royal Rumble match will feature several WWE legends as surprise entrants, we can confirm that “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan canceled an independent date scheduled for Sunday in Louisiana for undisclosed reasons, a sign he could be at the Rumble. Hacksaw has a book coming out in several months and is expected to be featured on television leading up to the release. Duggan won the first Royal Rumble back in 1988.
