- WWE returns to Washington D.C. next Monday for Raw at the Verizon Center—the second show at the venue in less than three months. With Seth Rollins turning on The Shield on last week's show, the post-broadcast dark match has been overhauled. According to the arena website, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose will team up with John Cena to take on Rollins, Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt.
- John Cena was a top-trending topic on Yahoo.com today.
- It was reported last week that Vince McMahon and his right-hand man, WWE Executive Vice President of Television Production Kevin Dunn, aren't completely sold on WWE newcomers Paige and Adam Rose. The WWE chief doesn't easily embrace new talents, which could explain why Paige has had minimal character development despite holding the Divas Championship. Paige's mother Julia Hamer, who wrestles in the United Kingdom as Saraya Knight, responded to the online report via Facebook.
"So the dirt sheets says Vince doesn't like Paige hahahahahahahahahahaha ok lets believe that because it must be true as its on the internet, oh does that mean that the link that states WWE is closing down is true also!!!!!!" she wrote on her personal account before deleting the message.
Hamer also responded via Twitter to the report, saying "this is not true." She deleted that message as well.
Meanwhile, Hamer is also upset about receiving private messages on Facebook from strangers concerning her daughter, in addition to other things: "I am seriously thinking of deleting this facebook and starting again, I have had enough abuse to last a lifetime! Please note I don't do sexual favours, I will not give you my blessing to stalk and marry my daughter, I cannot get you dates with my sons, I cannot give you addresses and numbers and I will not tolerate you and your rudeness, believe me if you were stood in front of me it would be handled very differently then a polite message on facebook!!"
