Without Paul Bearer, there would be no Kane...
- Amelia's Law, the bill being pushed by the family of Dutch "Zeb Colter" Mantel after Mantel's granddaughter was killed in a car wreck by a felon running from local police, has been approved by the local Judiciary Committee. It was originally shut down from voting this year due to the costs involved. It would see a stricter oversight on the parole board hearings for potentially dangerous felons. It still has a long way to go before it is official but this gives it an advantage when it is up for consideration later this year. Mantel and his daughter both worked on the bill personally.

- The story about Chris Masters saving his mother is getting a lot of coverage in the media.
- Kane was interviewed by the Norfolk Navy Flagship to promote Wrestlemania and this weekend's house show in Virginia.
When asked about the death of William Moody, he said: "He was an integral part of my early years as Kane. Without Paul Bearer, there wouldn't have been a Kane, because he was such an important part of that story. Also, we traveled together for a few years, so it was a loss on a personal level for me as well. He came back and managed me in 2010 when I was World Champion, which was really cool – again against The Undertaker. Just like everyone else, I was a big fan of Paul Bearer and Percy Pringle, and all of the other names that he went by. It was a tough loss for everybody. We went to the viewing and what was really amazing was there were flowers there from all over the country – really, all over the world. It was nice to see an outpouring of affection from fans all over the place."
He also said that teaming with Daniel Bryan lets him be a "lighter" personality. He also talked about Wrestlemania and named the Pete Rose tombstone as his favorite moment.
- WWE has posted photos and video from the 1990 "Wrestling Summit" event at the Tokyo Dome with talent from the WWF, New Japan and All Japan. They have been pushing a lot of historical material in recent months.
