WWEekly Confidence Index (Week of February 9, 2014)

Maybe there is indeed life after CM Punk. At a time of a movement that literally lives and dies by the week and a rivalry that will just...not...go away...ever, there are occasional reminders that while WWE Creative can be doofuses (even if it's not entirely their fault), they do get a fat pitch down the middle and hit it out of the ballpark. Take the Shield and the Wyatt Family rivalry. They first teased this last November just before the Survivor Series PPV, then again during one of the holiday episodes of RAW (probably the pre-New Years' one). Here's the thing: you take six people that can go in the ring, give them all compelling characters, and a good reason to fight (two dominant trios; there can be only one) and people will put down cash money to see them fight to the death. It's moments like these that make people confident in your product.

But enough about my feelings, how about your feelings? Elimination Chamber: The PPV and the WWE Network are less than two weeks from happening, with Wrestlemania XXX now under two months away. But perhaps just as big and worth keeping an eye on is the negotiations between WWE and NBCUniversal and other television conglomerates for future television rights.

How confident are you as a fan and consumer right now? Before you answer, here's what's gone on since we last checked in on Friday.
