-- With less than a week until WrestleMania 28, we are going to become insanely busy during the next few weeks. We realize a lot of you only visit the site on Monday and Tuesday for backstage RAW/SD news but you'll want to check back in often as we head towards and beyond 'Mania. There will likely be 40+ posts per day so if you want to keep up with all the backstage news, you'll need to check back in numerous times on a daily basis. That includes the weekend, etc. Thanks for your continued support of the website. You guys are the best and we couldn't do this without you!
-- Yahoo Games has an article up about WWE's decision a few years back to ban wrestlers from playing video games backstage at events. Here is a bit from the article:
In 2001, Vince McMahon's wrestling organization conclusively won the Monday Night Wars, buying rival organization WCW, which for years had threatened its dominance of the pro wrestling world. But four years later, the product was growing stale. Fans complained the matches were lackluster and the shows were uninspired.
The WWE decided part of the problem was the habit many wrestlers had of playing video games backstage instead of watching and learning from live matches. The organization promptly banned games from the backstage area, though gamers do get the chance to throw down virtually once a year at the company's THQ Superstar Challenge event.
