Some good news for WWE. Viewership for Monday Night Raw is back at 4 million this week. Many are attributing that to the return of Brock Lesnar, which was widely mentioned through social media by the internet wrestling community. A few are giving credit to Machine Gun Kelly, who is a mainstream name.

Never one to avoid controversy, Vince Russo has drawn the ire of the internet wrestling community yet again. The source of discontent stems from the fact that he took to social media to say that Sami Zayn, who made his debut on Monday Night Raw this week, was not a television star yet. He stated that while the hardcore fans might know of him, the masses just assumed that he was some jobber that was in the ring with John Cena.

While talking about the abilities of Adrian Neville, JBL stated that Owen Hart was a high flying but not anything like this. Innocently, Booker T added to that by stating that Hart did not defy gravity, which is a term used frequently for Neville. That drew the ire of fans, who immediate took to social media to bash Booker, who ended up issuing an apology. WWE decided to take it a step further by removing the comments on the replay of Monday Night Raw.

Through social media, Wade Barrett revealed that he would be returning to England after WWE concludes their tour of Europe. He more than likely will be written off of Monday Night Raw so that he can return to his home country to film the movie Eliminators. No word yet on how long he will be on the set, but the front office should not have any problems with him being gone because he is not receiving a big push at the moment.

It now appears extremely likely that Snoop Dogg is going to get into the ring on the next episode of Monday Night Raw and get physical with a WWE performer. Curtis Axel continues to sell their beef through social media. It is being said that he is more than willing to put over the very thin rapper because it will be good for the company.

A rather interesting offer was made to Dolph Ziggler recently. A porn company asked him if they could produce some branded wrestling tights for him to wear on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Brazzers wanted to be the official sponsor of the former world heavyweight champion. Of course, this is simply a marketing ploy by someone that is very adept at social media marketing because WWE would never allow such a thing to happen.
