-- WWE returns to the Sovereign Center in Reading, Pennsylvania on October 20th, 2012 at 7:30 PM. Tickets go on sale July 28th, 2012 at 10 AM.

-- Madusa, who captured the WWE Women's Championship as Alundra Blayze, says she will not be on hand for tonight's historic 1000th episode of Raw due to "prior engagements."

"Good luck, congrats and many blessings to all that have a wonderful and historical time at WWE 1000 epic night! Don't forget to watch..... Your one and only .....STILL WWE's/WWF's champion! Just to set it straight... I will not be there. Prior engagements," she wrote on Facebook.

As noted earlier, Shane Helms, formerly known as The Hurricane, also confirmed that he will not be on the show due to his contractual status with another wrestling organization (Lucha Libre USA).

-- Sid Vicious spoke to Memphisport.com about his son Frank not telling other Big Brother houseguests who his dad is and possibly appearing on tonight's historic RAW episode celebrating 1,000 episodes. Sid has been contacted and will likely be appearing. All the legends we've seen in recent weeks (Roddy Piper, DDP, Doink The Clown, Animal, etc) will also be appearing tonight.
