Possible Payback Location, Update On WWE Looking At Nephew Of Former WCW Star, Recent Attendance

- We noted before that WWE officials were interested in Humberto Garza III, who works in AAA as Garza Jr. and is the nephew of former WCW star Hector Garza.
Word is that Garza will be working either the WWE Global Cruiserweight Series tournament or he will be working an upcoming WWE tryout camp. WWE officials are also looking at a few other wrestlers from Mexico, including possibly one of Garza's brothers.

- As noted, the WWE Payback pay-per-view has been moved to May 1st while the Extreme Rules pay-per-view will take place on May 22nd in Newark, NJ at the Prudential Center, the previously announced site for Payback. No word yet on where Payback will take place but it could be Chicago. WWE returns to Chicago for RAW in two weeks, so perhaps the announcement will come there.

- Below are recent WWE attendance figures:

* February 18th in Upper Darby, PA for NXT drew 2,200 fans (Finn Balor crew)
* February 18th in Crystal River, FL for NXT drew 150 fans (B crew)
* February 19th in Asbury Park, NJ for NXT drew a sellout of 2,500 fans (Balor crew)
* February 20th in Albany, NY for NXT drew a near sellout of 2,000 fans (Balor crew)
* February 20th in Youngstown, Ohio drew a near sellout of 3,700 fans
* February 22nd in Detroit for RAW drew 10,400 fans
