WWE FANS STORM SOCIAL MEDIA OVER CM PUNK, PETITION THE WHITE HOUSE FOR DANIEL BRYAN'S WRESTLEMANIA MAIN EVENT, KENTA AND MORE WWE NEWS

As if all the publicity over the CM Punk walkout and fan chants at last night's WWE NXT taping weren't enough, WWE is also contending with angry fans on their social media platforms. We've received a TON of email this week about fans hijacking WWE Facebook pages with angry messages about Punk. I took a quick look at the WWE and WWE Network Facebook pages this morning and just about every topic created by the company has been overwhelmed by pro-CM Punk fans. Considering WWE has cultivated a system where they direct their fans to be socially interactive, this has to be driving people nuts.

Equally as nutty, or perhaps genius in a twisted way, is that nearly 100,000 fans have petitioned the White House online to demand that Daniel Bryan receive a WWE World Heavyweight championship match at Wrestlemania 30. Seriously, you can't make this up. I wonder what WWE management thinks about this one.

KENTA, who was at the WWE Performance Center this week, announced he would make an announcement about his career on Monday in Japan.

There was international media at the Performance Center this week. Triple H gave them a tour of the facility. Having been there, I can tell you it's an impressive place.

WWE Classics on Demand officially shuts down today.

WWE has added a 2/27 WWE NXT Taping at Full Sail University, the day after the NXT Arrival special on the WWE Network. They are either going to be so far ahead on taping TV it will be ridiculous. Unless they are expanding the length of the NXT series from an hour to something longer, I am guessing some of the material that was filmed at the last few tapings won't be used.

Gizmodo.com takes a look at the WWE Second Screen Experience, calling it the WWE Network's secret weapon.
