– This past Monday’s RAW from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia drew 15,654 fans with 12,500 of those being paid – making it the 7th consecutive sellout for RAW.
– Rajah.com reader Stan sent in word that Monday’s episode of RAW featured a total of 30 minutes and 11 seconds of in-ring action. While this doesn’t sound like much for a two hour broadcast, this is actually way up from the previous week’s show, which only featured 17 minutes and 39 seconds of actual wrestling.
– At Sunday’s WrestleMania XXVII pay-per-view, we saw WWE Champion The Miz defy the odds and retain his title against John Cena. WWE officials are said to be thrilled with the evolution of character in recent months. It’s hard to believe how far he has come in just one year’s time, but The Miz has carried himself like a true champion and his recent media appearances promoting WrestleMania have solidified him as somebody the company knows they can rely on to represent them.
John Cena wrote on Twitter this week that he plans to re-focus his attention on The Miz and the WWE championship, now that his beef with The Rock has been put on hold for the time being.
It’s worth noting that WWE’s long-term direction is to have The Miz eventually turn babyface. The Miz has received a lot of babyface reactions from live WWE crowds lately, in part due to him working against Cena, who is a face but gets so much heel heat.
