CM Punk Still WWE Champ After Rumble?, Flair Removed from Match, SmackDown Social Media Score

CM Punk Still WWE Champ After Rumble?, Flair Removed from Match, SmackDown Social Media Score

Posted on January 26, 2013 by
- Readers have noted that CM Punk is listed as the WWE Champion in advertisements for WWE events after this Sunday's Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Don't look too much into it, as advertisements for The Big Show as World Heavyweight Champion are still being aired.

- Ric Flair did not return to the ring today for All Japan Pro Wrestling due to some sort of health issue. Flair was replaced by his son, Reid, who was moved up from a preliminary tag match to work with Keiji Mutoh (Great Muta) in a losing effort to Tatsumu Fujinami and Seiya Sanada when Sanada pinned Flair.

- This week's episode of WWE Smackdown scored 77,259 in social media activity, up ten percent from last week's episode.

Smackdown finished #3 on cable TV Friday night, its best finish of 2013 according to Trendrr.TV.

They always show early advertisements, most the time it showing the current champion doesn't really mean muc.

Yeah, they keep the ads in line with storyline. So, if there is an ad that is after RR and advertises Punk as champ, it means nothing. They update it after the event.

Yeah people shouldnt look too much into the advertisements as like Cole said, they keep the ads in line with what is currently happening in WWE.

It be good to see Punk retain, but it's highly unlikely.
