- WWE officials have been in contact with several celebrities about appearing at WrestleMania 29.

- WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk says he is finally retired for good. Funk told The Ministry of Slam podcast:

“I had a match against Tommy Dreamer for a company (AWE “Night Of Legends in October, 2011) just over a year ago, and that truly and honestly is my last match. That said, there’s no point in being an idiot; if somebody approached me offering an extreme amount of money to wrestle, I’d be a fool not to. Take into consideration too that the quicker I’d lose, the more money I’d walk away with! Think about that! I am retired, but if some idiot wants to go ahead and give me much more than I’m worth, well then I’d take it from them! What I’ve often thought about it having one more show, where I’d sell the tickets for one million dollars a piece. If I sell one ticket, then I go ahead and I wrestle. If I don’t sell any, I don’t wrestle! Seriously, I am retired for good, but that doesn’t sound like too bad of an idea.”

- Wade Barrett says his new nickname is The Prince. Here are a few tweets from last night with a quote from Niccolo Machiavelli’s The Prince:

“As Intercontinental Champion, I am effectively ‘The Prince’ of @WWE. Beware the Machiavellian wiles of ‘The Prince’.”

“Wade Barrett: #ThePrince and heir to the @WWE throne.”

““If an injury has to be done to a man, it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.” #ThePrince”
