WWE Releases BNB Shirt, USA Today Calls WWE Unusual, WWE Stars & #BringBackOurGirls

- The Rock and Titus O'Neil are among the wrestlers supporting the #BringBackOurGirls social media campaign. The campaign was started after the Boko Haram terror group abducted nearly 300 girls from a school in Nigeria.

- USA Today has ranked WWE #3 on a new list of "America's most unusual public companies." They wrote:

"Vince McMahon has built World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: WWE) into global wrestling empire over the years. The company recently launched the WWE Network. The network, which had 667,000 as of April, seems well on its way to reaching its stated goal of 1 million subscribers by the end of this year. Despite some concerns about a shift to online viewing and away from live events and pay-per-view, WWE has managed to steadily grow its revenues. Sales were $508 million in 2013, versus $478 million in 2010. The WWE Network is expected to grow revenues to $581 million in 2014 and to nearly $800 million in 2015. In addition to the network, WWE also hosts Wrestlemania the professional wrestling's equivalent of the Super Bowl. Its investors currently receive a 2.8% dividend yield."

- WWE's shop website has released a new Bad News Barrett t-shirt. Also, through Tuesday night you can get free shipping on orders of $25+ with code RAWFS by clicking here. Here is a photo of Barrett wearing the shirt at RAW this afternoon:
