— WrestleMania XXV will air in highlight form on NBC on August 30, 2009 — likely as a means to fill one of the two contractually obligated annual television specials. Although, August 30th falls on a Sunday instead of a Saturday.

— Estimates for the weekend have Race to Witch Mountain (starring former WWE Superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) doing $3.35 million and WWE Studios’ 12 Rounds doing $2.3 million for No. 8 and No. 9. As a result, Johnson’s movie beat Cena’s movie for the second week in a row. Furthermore, 12 Rounds stands to take a 56% box office plunge in its second week out. In comparison, the gross for the 2006 release The Marine only dropped 46% in its second week out.

— WWE 24/7 is currently airing the go-home show for WrestleMania X-Seven — the March 29, 2001 episode of SmackDown. An eerie tag match featuring Chris Benoit and Test vs. Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle was edited out of the WWE 24/7 broadcast. However, you can see the original airing of the match here on YouTube. WWE 24/7 is also airing WrestleMania X-Seven with the Chris Benoit vs. Kurt Angle match cut out of the broadcast.
