Backstage News on Plans for the Vince vs. Triple H Storyline, WWE-UFC Twitter Study
- A Twitter study of WWE and UFC shows that per capita, based on tweets that mention the brand name, WWE's best three states are New Jersey, New Hampshire and Connecticut. UFC's are Nevada, Montana and New Mexico. Both UFC and WWE's best states are the ones they are headquartered in so it's a metric likely moved by employees. On a geographical basis, WWE's best states were Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine, West Virginia, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Colorado. WWE's worst were Oregon, Utah, Kansas, Louisiana Georgia and Alabama.
- We noted before that WWE officials were wanting to do Steve Austin vs. Triple H with Austin backing Vince McMahon in a fight for control of the company for next year's WrestleMania XXX main event. That idea was proposed in creative but had never been agreed to. Word now is that it's off the books. No word yet on exactly why the idea was nixed but the idea of The Rock in Austin's role has been talked about as well.
At one point, the idea for SummerSlam was that Vince, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H would unite but later in the year they would split again with Triple H going heel.

If they are not going to do Punk vs Austin, then they should do The Rock vs Steve Austin ( the real end of an era match ) for the last time ever..

The idea was nixed probably because Austin still can't wrestle due to his neck injury. The Rock vs Triple H would be a highlight match for Wrestlemania XXX (Erotic name huh...lol sorry.) I don;t think we will see Austin in the ring again...unless you purchase WWE 2k14! (insert shameless game promo here)
