- There weren’t that many social media interactions last night as originally planned, but there will be more going forward. A majority of interactive polls will be promoted in the first hour, with pay-offs happening in the third.
- Heath Slater was said to have enjoyed working so closely with WWE Legends over the past few weeks to promote the 1,000th episode of RAW. He was described as being like a “kid in a candy store” with the Legends backstage last night.
- There has been a lot of talk surrounding the fact that WWE used an uncensored WWF scratch logo in a highlight video last night during the 1,000th episode of RAW. Rumor has it that the company has reached some sort of deal with the World Wildlife Fund in order to use the logo in flashback moments and such.
