WrestleMania Issues, WWE’s Attendance ‘Record’, JR-WWE

– Many people have reported that the DirecTV feed went out last night during the Jerry Lawler-Michael Cole match.

– A source sent this one in: I was at at a local Hooters watching WrestleMania, and just as Jerry Lawler went to pull Michael Cole out of his box, the signal was lost. It said that Hooters had not bought the PPV, but after several attempts to get the signal back, the manager said that it was a DirectTV problem. The blackout lasted about six minutes, and we had no problems the rest of the night.

– While WWE claimed the record for an “entertainment” event in the Georgia Dome last night, The Backstreet Boys had a crowd of 73,337 in 2000 at the building. WWE claimed an attendance of 71,617 as we noted late last night here on the website.

– Jim Ross posted the following on his Twitter… “Still celebrating my 1 off appearence @ wm27. Loved worked w/ @jerrylawler again. Not plans @ this time 2 reunite. Happy 2 b on the team.”

– Jim Ross also said on Twitter that he would be appearing at a show next weekend in Sand Springs, Oklahoma for fellow WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race.
