Earlier this morning reports circulated that there was an incident at the St. Louis airport between CM Punk and a fan. Punk refused to sign an autograph for the fan, who was said to have been rude which led to Punk throwing a fan’s autograph book in the trash, which prompted airport police to intervene. Punk responded to the incident on his Twitter, stating that the fan exhibited “unacceptable behavior.”
“One person ruins it for everybody. Sorry y’all,” Punk wrote. ” This is for all the respectful fans I saw at the airport. Right on. Thanks.”
When a fan implied that he may be getting a big head, Punk replied, “Nah. Just don’t like rude people.”

USA Today has an article promoting Raw’s 1000th episode in it they talk to AJ about the wedding storyline and much more

It sounds like an episode of Glee: An on-again, off-again couple finally decide to get engaged, and two separate dance numbers — one involving a disco ball — break out amid a heap of betrayal, wars of words and a few sneak attacks… The tattooed WWE champion CM Punk will defend his title against John Cena, the square-jawed face of the organization, in a battle of fan favorites, and there will be a “wedding” of that engaged couple, Daniel Bryan and his eccentric tomboy girlfriend AJ Lee.

On social media as well as in arenas, Lee is one of the most popular of the WWE’s female “Divas” and a rising star from a current love-triangle angle involving her “crazy chick” character, Bryan and Punk. (The spunky and diminutive Lee, who comes across as shy off-screen, also laid a big wet smooch on the much-larger Jacobs one night to make it a love rhombus for a time.) “I love the in-ring work, but as a fan I love the dramatic stuff more than anything,” says Lee, a self-admitted “nerd” who hopes to inspire little girls the same way WWE women did for her when she was 12. “This day and age, there needs to be a girl who’s not wearing as much makeup and isn’t that pampered-up and fancy. There’s a place for that, but there’s also a place for a girl I think fans want to hang out with and see themselves in.”

variety is running an article to promote tonight’s 1000th episode of Raw. In it Stephanie McMahon explains how the WWE plans to keep viewers attention for three hours with Raw’s new start time beginning tonight.

“We’re going to use social media in a more enhanced fashion,” besides just promotion, Stephanie McMahon Levesque, executive VP, creative for WWE, told Variety. “Our fans will affect some type of content in the show every week.”

Doing so “keeps your audience tuned into the broadcast for the entire three hours,” she believes. And if it works, the move could pave the way for other shows considering ways to keep distracted auds from changing channels.
