Since he has proven himself to be one of the best promoters in professional wrestling, there is a lot of faith in Tommy Dreamer and his abilities. He recently teased through social media that there is a big announcement coming for House of Hardcore. The ECW legend stated that he is waiting for contracts to be finalized. With his track record, it would not come as a shock to anyone if he were able to secure a television deal for his events.

When it comes to Wrestlemania, WWE loves to tout numbers because they love to break records. It makes the company look especially impressive to the media, which in turn makes them look impressive to potential advertisers. Vince McMahon was quite pleased that he was able to draw in 76,976 fans to Levi Stadium for the event. The CEO is hoping to break his own all time record with the big pay per view in Dallas next year.

An interesting idea is being tossed around right now, and if implemented, it could shatter pay per view records for UFC. CM Punk is already in the promotion and training for his first fight. Brock Lesnar is finishing off his contract with WWE in a couple of weeks and has eyes on a return to mixed martial arts. If the promotion were to put the debut fight for Punk and the return fight for Lesnar on the same card, that would draw tremendous interest.

In a sign that he is another step closer to making his UFC debut, CM Punk was thrown into a sparring match on Monday. He fought against Craig Eckelberg, who has an overall record of 10 wins and 1 loss in a span of three years. The trainer stated that Punk had a few things to work out, but he also said that he was very proud of the former WWE star for how far along he has progressed. He stated that the potential is definitely there.

If you look at the record books, you will notice that Xavier Woods has yet to work a pay per view for WWE this year. That streak will more than likely be ending at Wrestlemania, as he is rumored to be a possible participant in two different matches. Woods might team up with Kofi Kingston or Big E Langston to face several tag teams for the title. If management does not go that route, then Woods will be a participant in the battle royal.

Ronda Rousey headlined a UFC card in Las Vegas last night. She created quite a buzz by beating her opponent in a record 14 seconds. That generated quite a bit of attention for her on social media. Some of that attention, however, was stolen by Brock Lesnar, who made a surprising appearance in the audience. Dressed in a nice suit, the WWE Heavyweight Champion sat right behind Dana White, which of course led to speculations.

Next week, Vince Russo is heading to Los Angeles and visiting Lucha Underground. That much we know. However, what we don't know is whether or not the two sides are meeting to discuss a potential partnership. Rumors are floating around that the promotion is seriously considering the idea of having Russo be their lead writer. While a lot of fans have negative viewers on the guy, he does have quite the track record of success in the industry.
