- Last night's WWE Payback pay-per-view ranked #2 among series & specials for the night in Nielsen's Twitter TV ratings, behind Game of Thrones on HBO. As noted, Nielsen recently confirmed to us that they have changed the way Twitter ratings are being released as Unique Audience will no longer be included. The weekly lists will now include and be ranked by tweet volume, and this was the first pay-per-view since those changes. Payback had 326,000 tweets with 57,000 unique authors. In comparison, Game of Thrones had 338,000 tweets with 153,000 unique authors. Last Monday's RAW had 152,000 tweets with 35,000 unique authors.

- The cryptic tweets from members of The Wyatt Family continue. After recent comments from injured stars Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper, Braun Strowman posted the following today. It's worth noting that even up until last night's show went on the air, WWE had The Wyatt Family featured in all Payback promotional material but they obviously did not appear.
Some say the end is near.— Braun Strowman (@BraunStrowman) May 2, 2016
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.#DownWithTheMachine
