Pretty interesting given the decline in ratings. Are people less interested in wrestling/current stories, or are they less interested in a fixed schedule of televsion in a world of netflix, dvr and youtube.

If I had to make a guess, it'd be that people may be skipping the show and watching YouTube videos to just keep up to date with stuff they like.

That's me. The only thing I watch all of anymore is NXT and the PPVs. Everything else, I read the recap here and youtube anything that sounds interesting (which is decreasing weekly).

I've been listening to some of Jericho's podcasts in Youtube. All have been pretty interesting, though Mark Henry's has been my favorite.

What got me with Henry is them talking about how the environment in the locker room has changed and the crap that guys pulled back then, especially with the gang like cliques they had.

After WrestleMania this year, WWE updated their format for becoming a Grand Slam Champion. Under the original format you had to have won either the WWE or World Heavyweight Championship, Intercontinental, European or Hardcore Championship, and either the WWE or World Tag Team Championships.

The updated format has the Heavyweight and Tag titles under their current names (WWE World Heavyweight Championship and WWE Tag Team Championships), still the Intercontinental Championship, and now the United States Championship can substitute for the European and Hardcore titles.

So under the old format the men who have already completed the Grand Slam were HBK, HHH, Eddie Guerrero, JBL, Big Show, Kurt Angle, Christian, Booker T, Kane, Jeff Hardy, RVD and Chris Jericho.

Under the updated format the guys who have completed it now include Edge, The Miz, and Daniel Bryan. Angle, Show, and Eddie have completed it under both. Also, technically Benoit has completed it as well.

Lastly, to complete the Grand Slam under the old format, Undertaker would need a run as Intercontinental Champion, and both Goldust and William Regal would need runs as WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Mark Henry could complete it under the old rules, but he would need a run as a Tag Champ and IC champ.

With the new rules John Cena would need a run as IC champ to complete the Grand Slam, Dolph Ziggler would need a run as WWE Tag Champ, Randy Orton would need a run as US Champ, and Sheamus would need a run as Tag Champ and IC.

Finally, R-Truth could complete the Grand Slam under both criteria, but he'd need runs as Heavyweight Champ and IC Champ to do it.

Oh, and two last fun facts, until the format was updated, Jericho was the only person to win every eligible title, he would need a run as US Champ to reclaim that distinction and Edge is the only person to complete the Grand Slam, win Money in the Bank, the Royal Rumble, and King of the Ring.

What would happen in a ladder match if the title or case accidently fell during the match.? Would They restart it or just let the first person to get it win?

Mildly interesting
WWE's website has a new article looking at the 10 Superstars who have the longest consecutive tenures in WWE, as of today: The Miz with 3,463 days, Hornswoggle with 3,470 days, Dolph Ziggler with 3,593 days, John Cena with 4,899 days, Randy Orton with 4,962 days, Big Show with 6,128 days, Kane with 6,625 days, Mark Henry with 7,198 days, Triple H with 7,514 days and The Undertaker with 9,134 days.

I wonder if Miz's time includes when he was hosting the Diva search, before he actually got in the ring.
