During a recent interview, Elijah Burke revealed something rather interesting. He stated that he has been in contact with Triple H, and the two of them have discussed the possibility of him making a return to WWE. That comes as a bit of a surprise as the front office has been focused on bringing in new guys and training them in the developmental program. For those that do not know, Burke has been busy filming a couple of movies.

Since he happens to be the most popular professional wrestling commentator of all time, Jim Ross is a candidate for every opening in any promotion across the world. House of Hardcore is no exception. You can expect Tommy Dreamer to place a call to Ross now that he has a television deal that will enable his promotion to be seen in several countries across the globe. Earlier in the week, Ross stated that he had an interesting deal on the table.

In a rather interesting bit of news, Vivid Cabaret ran a poll where they asked their performers about which celebrity that they would want to work topless with them. Katy Perry, Kate Upton, Rihanna and Scarlett Johansson made the list. Rounding out the top five is a person that WWE fans have been yearning to see more of. Paige was surprisingly voted in. It is highly unlikely that the front office would allow her to do it, unfortunately.

Some rather interesting news are coming out of the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. Since it was taped in London, there was a delay in the airing in the United States. WWE took that opportunity to edit up some things to their favor. They made sure to tone down the huge reaction that Antonio Cesaro received from the fans. They used that pop and made it seem like it was Randy Orton that the audience was going wild for.

As some of you may already know by now, Ric Flair is heading to England this month to do his first ever speaking tour. He has made it much more interesting. The former world heavyweight champion revealed during a newspaper interview that there are no limits in regards to the questions that he will answer. Flair stated that he would gladly talk about his finances, his divorces and even the untimely death of Reid Flair.

In a rather interesting but not unexpected move, WWE is pairing up Finn Balor and Adrian Neville during their tour of Europe. For the shows in Ireland, Balor has been working as the face and picking up the victories. He works as a heel during shows in England, where he has been taking the loss. Balor is from Ireland, while Neville is from England. A big reason why the two of them were signed is so they can be marketing assets overseas.

Vickie Guerrero did a podcast interview with Chris Jericho this week, and she revealed something rather interesting about the Radicalz making the jump to WWE. She revealed that even before Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, Perry Saturn and Eddie Guerrero were released by WCW, there were discussions being had with Vince McMahon, which is essentially contract tampering. No lawsuit is likely to take place since the company no longer exists.

In a rather interesting little tidbit, Drew McIntyre almost never signed with TNA. He said that he was sleeping at the time and didn't recognize the number that was calling, so he simply threw his phone on the bed. The front office tried contacting him a couple of times and failed. Then, Tommy Dreamer decided to take things into his own hands by sending a text message to McIntyre to let him know that the company wanted to sign him.

In a rather interesting move, DirecTV has been in negotiations with WWE to resume airing their pay per view events again. It makes very little sense for Vince McMahon to sign up for that again because he is now using that as a tool to get more subscribers for the Network. Plus, the buy rates were dropping at a pretty marginal scale regardless. While the financial gains would not be a lot, they are more than zero, so this could possibly happen.

In a rather interesting move, WWE is set to launch the Network in Japan. Many are wondering if the company will do well over there because the people of that country have not been really supportive of the product. Management had to rely on Hulk Hogan last time to draw in the audience to their last series of live events. Another thing to keep an eye on is whether or not their online video subscription service can outdraw the one by New Japan.
