- WWE World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio revealed on Twitter over the weekend that WWE will be returning to Mexico this September with live events in Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey.

Organization officials lost interest in targeting the once lucrative market after a SmackDown live event tour of the country in May drew poorly. This led to a few long-term employees being terminated as they were blamed for the poor gates.

- Last Monday, WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia sang the National Anthem in Phoenix, Arizona before an NBA game between the hometown Suns and the visiting Los Angeles Lakers. Video of her performance, as well as herself delivering pizzas to a row of fans with the Suns mascot, is available here.

- As previously noted, official WWE website has posted photos of WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and The Miz attending the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
