* For those wondering, I’m told that Melina was a complete pleasure to work with and came to WSU with no airs & graces. Everyone we’ve heard from had great experiences with Melina. She was very sociable with everyone. The roster wants her back.
* WSU World Champion Mercedes Martinez suffered a stinger during the steel cage War Games match. She had to be taken to hospital. No ring time is expected to be missed, just bruises & bumps which should heal over the next several weeks. All the best to Mercedes!
* Breaking Barriers 2 was the most purchased WSU iPPV to date, I’m told. The pre-orders exceeded pre-orders for past events. Just judging by the reaction on Twitter and the traffic that our live coverage was getting, this seems to make sense. We had more traffic for the live coverage than any other WSU iPPV, which suggests that there was more awareness about this iPPV than the ones in the past. Kudos to WSU and all involved because the promotion for this iPPV was vast & it looks like it paid off with more people purchasing and generally knowing about this show compared to past events.
* The next event is a joint show with NWS in January. The main event for the WSU side will be Traci Brooks vs Jillian Hall with Molly Holly serving as special guest referee. Also, a 5-on-5 tag match is booked as the Boston Shore, Sassy Stephie, Allysin Kay & Tina San Antonio face the Soul Sisters, Alicia, Brittney Savage & Marti Belle. That show is on January 21st.
* WSU has uploaded a lot of videos featured during the iPPV to its YouTube channel. Below you can see one of Steven’s backstage interviews representing Diva Dirt.
* Don’t forget: I’ll be joined by WSU promoter Sean McCaffrey on Wednesday’s debut edition of DD360 at 9pm ET. He’ll be giving us a lot more fallout from Breaking Barriers 2, including the decision to put Dixie Carter in the WSU Hall of Fame.
