Stephanie McMahon-Levesque was backstage at Raw last night and is pictured in a WWE.com story about her father's "injury" at the hands of Brock Lesnar on Raw. Stephanie doesn't go on the road every week but the Rumble weekend is obviously one of the biggest of WWE's year. In addition to that, her and husband Triple H are huge fans of Las Vegas and come here as often as they can. Can't say I blame them on that one.
The Rock actually did a localized promo last night for the Raw broadcast that will take place in Philadelphia on 3/25. It is the first time in forever that I can remember a worker doing that. Obviously they were trying to sell tickets.
ESPN.com doing WWE rankings was not a one time thing. They have done another list today, with The Rock at number one. I guess they are channeling Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine. You can see the whole list by clicking here.
