- F4WOnline.com published a report clarifying rumors of WWE’s handling of Monday’s Raw show after broadcaster and wrestler Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack while commentating.

According to a WWE employee backstage at the event, it was a very chaotic scene but he did not see any pray groups. Contrary to speculation, there was never any talk of halting the show.

WWE chief Vince McMahon was not at Lawler’s side during the entire ordeal, as reported. He briefly checked on the backstage commotion during a commercial break before resuming his producing duties at Gorilla Position. Rather, Paul “Triple H” Levesque directed orders backstage.

All of broadcaster Michael Cole’s on-air verbiage concerning Lawler was directed by McMahon word-for-word.

- WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel has written an article for WWE.com profiling the rich relationship between WWE and New York City.

“As the global entity that WWE is today, many cities are visited by its Superstars and Divas. But there is still an aura about the biggest city in the world — New York City — that means something very special to WWE. And this “love affair” has been continuous for more than 50 years,” writes Finkel.
