McMahon Bans Small City TV Mentions

It's being reported that Vince McMahon issued a mandate on Monday night that the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana not be mentioned at anytime during the Raw broadcast. McMahon issued the same mandate for the June 5th Smackdown in Columbia, South Carolina.

The reason for the call is that McMahon reportedly doesn't want cities mentioned on TV whose names do not sound "big league" enough.

Big WWE '13 Pre-Orders

As of last week, pre-order sales for "WWE '13" were up 171%, up 170% on Xbox, 189% on PS3 and 84% on Wii, compared to last year's figures.

The pre-sale numbers are said to be through the roof, and that's being attributed to WWE's viral campaign for the game, CM Punk being the face of the game, and Mike Tyson's involvement in the game.
