NOTES FROM LAST NIGHT'S PPV, CONCERN FOR A TOP NAME IN THE COMPANY, BIG WEEK FOR WWE AND MORE

By Dave Scherer on 2012-12-17 12:21:12

People were talking backstage about how nasty R-Truth's leg injury was at last night's PPV.  If you saw the picture you know why.  It was pretty gory.

There was also a lot of concern for the lack of pop that Ryback got when he came out for his match.  Some were blaming the heel fans that were very loud in the crowd for the lack of reaction but the truth is that while those fans booed John Cena, Cena's fans were vocal in their support.  WWE really needs Ryback to get over right now so they are hoping that last night was an anomoly.

Everyone I talked to said that management was happy with The Shield and the job they did.  They were awesome and creative deserves praise for how they booked the match.

Speaking of Cena, he was on The Today Show today.  You can check out his appearance by clicking here.

WWE begins their "USA Week" tonight with Raw in Philadelphia, PA.  In addition to fallout from last night's TLC PPV, we will have The Slammys.  Personally, I am very curious to see how they follow up The Shield and Dolph Ziggler's push.  They shoot commercial-free Smackdown live in Pittsburgh, PA and tape Smackdown on Wednesday in Rochester, NY.  We are looking for reports from all three shows.

The Big Show will appear on USA's Burn Notice on Thursday while CM Punk will host Dwayne's (er The Rock's) airing of The Game Plan on the network on Friday.
