- 2013 WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Sammartino is indeed scheduled to appear at this year's Hall of Fame ceremony, the WrestleMania 29 pay-per-view and RAW the next night. - The dark main event after last night's WWE SmackDown tapings in Biloxi, MS saw Alberto Del Rio beat Big Show in a Street Fight. Del Rio put Show through a table to get the pin. - WWE is receiving more criticism from conservative websites including Twitchy and Breitbart.com for their Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter characters, accusing the company of bashing the Tea Party. WWE Senior VP of Marketing & Communications released the following statement: “WWE has a long history of creating fictional characters that serve as either protagonists or antagonists, no different than other television shows or feature films. To create compelling and relevant content for our audience, it is important to incorporate current events into our storylines. WWE is creating drama centered on a topical subject that has varying points of view to develop a rivalry between two characters. This storyline in no way represents WWE’s political point of view. One should not confuse WWE’s storytelling with what WWE stands for, similar to other entertainment companies such as Warner Bros., Universal Studios or Viacom."
