Here are some Summerslam related notes heading into the event tonight.
* As noted earlier this week in an article by Mashable.com, WWE has setup a “Social Hub” for tonight’s SummerSlam PPV at www.wwe.com/socialhub.
* Just a reminder that the WWE SummerSlam pre-show starts a half hour earlier at 7:00 p.m. Eastern (6:00 CT). The pre-show will feature Dean Ambrose defending the WWE United States Championship against Rob Van Dam. For all outlets carrying it, click here.
* The entire WWE 2K14 panel in Los Angeles on Saturday featuring Jim Ross, Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan, Rey Mysterio, Steve Austin, Paul Heyman, Mick Foley and Ric Flair is now online via Twitch.tv. Flair reveals a touching moment around the 45:00 minute mark about putting his Hall of Fame ring on his son at his funeral and WWE giving him another ring when he returned at a recent NXT event. You can view the whole video at this link.
* Brian Soscia is featuring an interview with WWE Diva Natalya and passed this along.
WWE Diva Natalya (@NatbyNature) called in and spoke w/ Brian Soscia (@THEBrianSoscia) to promote Summer Slam, which takes place this Sunday at 8PM on PPV. The conversation didn’t stop there as Soscia was curious about a number of things and Natalya was ready to talk about everything!

They start w/ her early career as Natalya opens up about her father, “The Anvil” Jim Neidhart’s reaction to her career choice. From there they move on and talk about her time training in the infamous Hart Family Dungeon and she tells Soscia about the most valuable lesson that she took from training there. They move onto discuss growing up around her Grandfather Stu Hart. The conversation then shifts to her thoughts on the Natalya farting gimmick that she was saddled with. As they continue their chat Natalya speaks on her relationship w/ WWE Superstar Tyson Kidd and if WWE has ever frowned upon it? It doesn’t stop there as Natalya dishes to Soscia about some intriguing comments made by Paul Heyman that made her realize how she would impact the industry as part of the Hart family. She then goes on to answer the #1 question submitted by men (and some women too) on social media; Would she ever pose for Playboy?
All that plus much more is discussed as Natalya hangs on the phone with Brian Soscia for another “B.S. Session”.
