WWE Cracking Down On Twitter, Vince Not At Raw, Brian Blair
– WWE has been cracking down very aggressively on Twitter accounts that impersonate or parody their superstars and overall product. With the company’s huge push to integrate Twitter into the WWE Universe, the company is said to be overly-protective about fans being mislead by other parties trying to benefit from their intellectual property. Several Twitter accounts have been shut down in the past few weeks as a result of this new policy.
– 1980s WWF star B. Brian Blair is recovering from appendectomy surgery. Blair was hospitalized for almost a week after his appendix burst and poisoned his intestines. Had the situation not been addressed when it was, he could have been facing severe medical complications.
– WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was not backstage at Monday’s RAW, which is a rare thing. With Vince gone, Triple H was in charge of things backstage. Among the WWE personalities backstage were Jim Ross, Sean Waltman, Layla and former diva Cherry.
