- As noted, WWE is reportedly dropping the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in February and replacing it with an event called Fast Lane. It looks like those plans are confirmed as WWE recently applied to trademark the “WWE Fast Lane” name, according to PWInsider.

- Erick Rowan and Luke Harper have been added to advertising for Monday’s WWE RAW from Buffalo, New York. It’s possible that they make their appearances since Bray Wyatt set them free in the storylines.

Investment Firm CIO Believes That The McMahon Family Want To Sell WWE

As noted earlier, tomorrow is a big day for WWE as they will be announcing their third-quarter 2014 results, which will include the updated WWE Network subscription figures following the Network launching in over 170 countries.

Benzinga has an article here about WWE announcing their results, with quotes from Lemelson Capital Management Chief Investment Officer Emmanuel Lemelson. Lemelson Capital shorted the stock last March before acquiring a new stake in company in April. Lemelson said that while the company has poor fiscal management, they have excellent creative management.

“The fact is you could give $1 billion to just about any management team in the world and they would have a very hard time recreating the WWE franchise — even given nearly limitless time — in terms of its extraordinary brand strength and customer loyalty,” Lemelson told Benzinga.

Lemelson also said that WWE isn’t likely to meet their Network projection of 1 million subscribers for 2014. However, he believes that it doesn’t necessarily matter if they hit their goal for the Network because he thinks that “the McMahon family is interested in selling the business, thus providing shares protection from further downside.”

Do you think the McMahon family would ever sell WWE? Do you think WWE Network will announce over a million subscribers tomorrow, which would include subscriptions in over 170 countries where the Network has been launched since they announced 667,287 subscribers last April? Sound off in the “Comments” section below.

Retro Wednesday: Survivor Series "Grand Finale"

Since 1987, Survivor Series has been a part of the PPV series presented by the WWE. Originally airing on Thanksgiving Day for a number of years, the event focused on tag team wrestling, featuring 8- to 10 man teams.

In 1990, the PPV had a very interesting concept. The winners, or “Survivors, ” of the respective matches formed another team at the end of the event, which was coined the “Grand Finale”.

The babyfaces who won their respective matches were Hulk Hogan, the Ultimate Warrior, and Tito Santana. For the heels, Ted DiBiase, Rick Martel, Warlord, and the Power & Glory team of Hercules and Paul Roma outlasted their competition to be in the main event.

The babyfaces won the match, leaving a positive note to one of the most memorable Survivor Series PPVs in WWE history. Although WWE has yet to duplicate that concept, at least we got to see it 24 years ago.

Classic match.

Backstage News on Plans for Cena vs. Lesnar Match, Roman Reigns and the WWE World Title

Thumbnail

- As of this week, the plan was still for John Cena to get his shot against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar at the 2015 Royal Rumble. There had been some speculation that the title shot may happen at TLC and plans could still change.

While Lesnar is scheduled to defend against Cena at the Rumble, he is expected to retain the title as WWE is still planning on having Roman Reigns win the gold at WrestleMania 31.

Reigns is scheduled for WWE live events in December but one WWE source in the know gave a much longer time table for Reigns’ return this week. That could be a mix-up in communications and we should have some kind of clarification later. Even in a worst case scenario, Reigns would be back in time for WrestleMania 31 but not the Rumble.

- There were timing issues with the Hell In a Cell pay-per-view on Sunday. As noted, there was a post-show scheduled that never happened. The show was scheduled to go off the air at 11:45pm EST but they went about ten minutes long.

- The words that played when Bray Wyatt made the surprise return at the end of the Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose Hell In a Cell match was actually an old Wyatt interview played backwards.

- Regarding Rollins vs. Ambrose being the main event of Hell In a Cell, that was the first time since November 23rd, 1994, at Survivor Series, that two WWE Superstars under the age of 30 headlined a singles match on pay-per-view. The main event that night was a 29 year old Undertaker vs. a 28 year old Yokozuna in a casket match.
