— WWE is trying to keep Carlito from leaving. As we have been reporting, Carlito has given his notice to management and says he will be departing in a couple weeks. The deal looks to be that on the heels of Booker and the last thing WWE wants is for another name heading to TNA. Carlito is upset with how he has been treated and feels that WWE has tried to humiliate him.
— As it stands right now WWE will not be getting the United States rights to Bret Hart’s book. The Simon & Schuster published book was number one in Canada among all books for two weeks and then fell to number two in its third week out. There is already some talk that the book will be the first wrestling book ever nominated for a mainstream book award.
— The crowds for WWE house shows over the Thanksgiving weekend increased over usual numbers in most cities as traditionally it is easier to draw on Holiday weekends.
