Some weekend news and notes…
The Bushwhackers are expected to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by John Laurinaitis. Seems random, but the connection is that Laurinaitis (as Johnny Ace) was the flag bearer for the team back when they worked as The Sheepherders.
The Big Show and Kane will be added to the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 31.
Despite being on the WWE Network, The 2015 Royal Rumble still did over 100,000 buys on PPV worldwide.
The US saw 49,000 buys while the 92,000 buys came from overseas, for a total of 141,000 PPV buys.
The 2014 Royal Rumble did 467,000 buys, but that event was held prior to the launch of the WWE Network.
