-- From Eric Sturrock and PWInsider.com: Thea Vidale, who played Shelton Benjamin's mother in 2006, was the final act on Comedy Central's "Gabriel Iglesias's Stand Up Revolution" last night. A replay of the show will air tonight at 10:30pm.
-- WWE.com has an interview plugging the "Road to WrestleMania" mode in this year's WWE '12 game. He was asked about the old school RAW last year, to which he replied, "It was great watching everything get put together, like they used to do in the old days. That's something I watched all the time, and it's amazing to see things progress on Raw as everything gets bigger, with the [TitanTron] and the stage and pyro. Yeah, the Old School Raw was very special, and it brought back many memories ... lots of great moments from when I used to watch every Monday night."
Sheamus also explained why he hasn't joined Twitter, saying, "I see a lot of guys doing it, but I just don't see the appeal. It's not my thing. You know, I like what I do on Raw or SmackDown to be what people remember me for, not what I say on Twitter. That's what Triple H did, what The Rock and Stone Cold [Steve Austin] did. Times are changing, but I want people to remember what Sheamus did in the ring as The Celtic Warrior, not some tweet about having a banana sandwich or chocolate milk today."
