– PWInsider reports that early word on WWE SummerSlam 2015 is that company officials are looking to hold it at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ, not the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. A location has not been decided on yet.
– We heard from many fans who had streaming problems with the WWE Network during SummerSlam last night with just about every device that the Network is on. I used a Playstation 3, an iPad and WWE.com at various times throughout the night and had trouble on all three devices.
– FirstWeFeast.com recently spoke with Jen Hagopian, who works on behalf of Dega Catering from Knoxville, TN. She has been working with WWE for eight years as Catering Crew Chief. She was asked about the most popular things WWE stars like to eat:
“Well, they tend to gravitate towards the plain grilled chicken dishes?things without sauces and gravies, so a lot of ’em are obviously watching their health and watching calories. We do a lot of the grilled chicken as a plain chicken. We’ll have another [option] so people who aren’t necessarily counting calories can just have a wonderfully flavored dish. [For] some of the bells and whistles that people request a lot, Cholula Hot Sauce seems to be one of the items. The cookies are a staple with us. We need to have cookies out every day or there’s probably 40, 50 requests for ’em if we don’t have the cookies out. There’s always an oatmeal dish: There’s either a big container of oatmeal that’s fresh in the morning that we leave up until around lunchtime, and then we try to refresh that, or at least we’ll have the oatmeal packets so that they can put ’em in their pockets and take ’em to their buses or hotels. Rice is also a staple. We always have the salad bar out. Every day, we put out a special salad, which is usually what I go for for my meal. One of my favorite ones, which is also a very popular dish, is the watermelon, feta, mint, and balsamic vinaigrette salad, so it’s really a good refreshing summer salad. Another popular one is arugula with shaved Parmesan and grilled figs.”
