Word going around is that McMahon was naive to the fact that the Miami Heat were as big of a draw as they are, and the feeling was also that McMahon felt Indiana isn’t a major market so the Pacers shouldn’t have been a popular team either.
— After making another trip to his official doctors in Florida, WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio’s return to action has been pushed back to early August.
