- Tonight’s SmackDown and ECW tapings will take place from the Baton Rouge River Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. No matches have been announced for either show yet but at least as of last week, there was a big CM Punk promo on the Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints planned. If you’re attending tonight’s tapings and would like to help out with results, please e-mail me.

- The format of WWE’s NXT program will be something along the lines of the old Tough Enough show with a reality TV feel to it. Viewers will also be able to follow the NXT talents outside of the ring on the show. The idea is that the talents on NXT will be fighting for a spot on the main WWE roster. WWE is still going back and forth on the idea of having veterans on the show.

- The feeling within WWE is that The Undertaker will probably work two, possibly three, matches between Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania. The tentative plan is to get the World Heavyweight title off him before WrestleMania but that could always change.
