The Shield Tops ESPN Power Rankings, The Rock, Raw Social Media Score, MVP Discussion



The Shield

- The Shield took the top spot on ESPN’s WWE Power Rankings this week. Ryback took the second placed followed by Mark Henry, The Rock and Jack Swagger. ESPN also noted how dead the crowd was on Monday’s RAW:

“For a company that prides itself on listening to its fans, I wonder how much weight it gives to 3 hours and 20 minutes of near silence (except for the very loud ‘You can’t wrestle’ chant aimed at Fandango, even if he did deliver a sweet flying leg drop). I think the dead crowd speaks volumes about the upcoming WrestleMania card and the lazy booking that goes along with setting up a string of rematches people weren’t really clamoring to see in the first place.”

- WWE Champion The Rock is scheduled to appear on Live! with Kelly and Michael this Wednesday to promote GI Joe 2.

- Monday’s episode of RAW scored a 288,262 in social activity, which was up 5% from last week. RAW ranked #1 on cable TV Monday night, according to Trendrr.TV.

- New York City DJ Peter Rosenberg is hosting yet another WrestleMania weekend event – an “Inside The Squared Circle” discussion with former WWE Superstar MVP. The event will take place at Caroline’s On Broadway in Manhattan immediately after the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony at Madison Square Garden. For ticket information, visit Carolines.com.
