With the rapid sales of tickets to events in Ohio and California, WWE is going full sail with their plans to take NXT across the country. Management has reached out to a couple of people to gauge their interest in being the live events executive. The person would be in charge of booking venues and arranging for travel. Thus far, Triple H has yet to find anyone to fill the position, but the belief is that someone will take them up on the offer.

A guy that has been receiving a lot of praise from his peers backstage is Davey Richards. People are impressed with his work ethics. He works all night as a paramedic. Instead of going straight home to sleep, he then hits the gym so that he can maintain his physique as a wrestler. Afterwards, he attends college classes to move up in the medical field. In between all of that, he somehow finds time to travel the world as a performer for TNA.

In an ugly and hopefully isolated scene last night after the Royal Rumble, a couple of fans attempted to attack WWE stars as they were trying to make their way out of the arena. A fan used a souvenir steel chair to hit the car that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were riding in. Another fan set up a chair directly in front of the vehicle that Fandango was traveling in, so they could not move forward right away. He also did the same thing to JBL.

One of the many names that has been rumored as a mystery entrant at the Royal Rumble tonight is Diamond Dallas Page. Those rumors are looking pretty good right now, as the former WWE and WCW star has reportedly traveled from Utah to Philadelphia this weekend. DDP was in the Beehive State because he was attending the movie premiere of a film that is based upon the resurrection and rehabilitation of Jake Roberts.

In a sign that he is very close to being healthy again, Zack Ryder has started training for his potential return to WWE. He spent some time working out at the wrestling school owned by former tag team partner, Curt Hawkins. Ryder also traveled down to Florida to train at the Performance Center, which makes it easier for management to gauge his readiness. Still no word yet on when the actual return to television will take place, though.

Before dedicating himself completely to MMA training, CM Punk decided to take a little trip with his wife, AJ Lee, down to Puerto Rico to visit her family. The couple was spotted by a fan, and the two of them actually took the time to take some pictures, which was then posted to a social media website. The belief is that Punk will start traveling up to Milwaukee soon to train with Roufusports. His UFC debut is still expected to take place in 2015.
