“Stone Cold” On Raw, WWE Lies About Setting Attendance Record



– “Stone Cold” Steve Austin said on his Twitter account that he is scheduled for tonight’s Raw.

He also said he’s doing three hours of satellite media to promote the premiere of Tough Enough on the USA Network.

– WWE issued a press release touting WrestleMania XXVII as the most attended entertainment event in Georgia Dome history, with 71,617 in attendance.

WWE claims the previous attendance record at the Georgia Dome for an entertainment event was set by The Backstreet Boys, which attracted 65,658 fans on February 19, 2000. WWE’s statement is false as according to a 2009 article on Billboard.com, that particular Backstreet Boys concert drew 73,337, not 65,658.

Furthermore, the 2008 SEC Championship Game at the Georgia Dome drew 75,892 fans.
