— Trendrr reports that SmackDown’s social media score is down 50% compared to last week’s 2012 high. The reason for this is that it was going up against the Olympics Opening Ceremony. It’s the lowest total for a first-run Friday episode in six months, dating back to February 10. However, since the Olympics were on network television, SmackDown still took #2 on cable TV for the third consecutive week.
— Tickets went on sale Saturday for RAW on October 22, 2012 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It is the first time RAW has been held at the venue since April 19, 2010.
— Former WWE Women’s Champion Sable was backstage at Monday’s RAW 1,000 as she accompanied husband Brock Lesnar to the show. She has accompanied him to shows before to keep him company since he detests being away from his family, even for a short while.
Fans have speculated that with Lesnar’s renewed partnership with WWE, the legendary Diva could return to television as well. That, however, is believed to be highly unlikely. According to people close to the couple, she has absolutely no desire to return to the spotlight and is very content on being a homebody.
