-- The New Haven Register has published an article on Sheamus' visit to ACES Mill Road School in North Haven, Connecticut on Thursday to promote WWE's anti-bullying initiative 'be a STAR.' Sheamus told students that experienced bullying as a small, overweight red-headed kid. "I didn't tell anybody. I was afraid to be a tattle tale. I should have told somebody. It's very important to talk to someone. There's nothing wrong with you," he said.
-- WWE's Royal Rumble PPV scored a social media activity score of 230,974. That score was #1 on cable and broadcast TV last night. The event scored a 73% positive sentiment score, which is close to what Smackdwon gets weekly. Raw usually tops out at around 70%.
-- WWE has started a pre-sale for the 1,000th episode of WWE Monday Night RAW, which takes place on July 23rd in St. Louis. The pre-sale code is HISTORY.
-- It should be noted that unless WWE is counting a TV special as a RAW or possibly double counting an episode, the real 1,000th episode will not air until July 30th. This is based on WWE claiming the 900th episode was on August 30, 2010.
-- Matt in Florida sent this along: Some (if not all) Bright House customers in the Tampa, FL area were unable to watch the Rumble. The programming dropped during the pre-show and never returned. The replay was unavailable as well.
