By Ryan Clark | March 19, 2008
AdWeek.com is running an article about WWE tackling sites such as MySpace, Facebook and Habbo to promote their latest events. Tom Boland, director of interactive marketing said that the company is now looking at other social networking websites from other countries so they can have a presence there as well. "There are between 20-25 leading social networks, so what we are doing is designing all of our assets to be able to support all of the different platforms," he said. WWE has created 'Fan Nation' which are WWE-dedicated pages on YouTube, MySpace and Facebook where people from around the world can add to their profile. WWE also used Habbo - a social networking site aimed at teenagers - to promote both Royal Rumble and WrestleMania interactively.
WWE hall of famer Johnny Rodz's next independent wrestling show is 4/5 at Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn, NY. Bell time is 8:00PM, General Admission is $10.
As noted earlier here on the site, WWE developmental wrestler Matt Sydal is training Floyd Mayweather for his upcoming WrestleMania match with Big Show because the two are similar in size. Sydal is billed as 5 five foot nine, but he's really five foot seven.
