Get a look at some of wrestling’s notable masked figures…
- On Raw, there was a tease of Paul Heyman wanting to marry Ryback after he "saved" Heyman at Night of Champions. Instead, Heyman proposed that Ryback become the latest "Paul Heyman Guy." Vince McMahon was reportedly behind the shock tactic taking place after making it clear to members of the writing staff that they feature "a spectacle" to lure viewers of ESPN's Monday Night Football away during halftime. An unnamed creative writer then pitched the idea of teasing Heyman asking Ryback for his hand in marriage.
- Some recent WWE attendance figures: Sept. 27 in Denver, Colorado, drew 5,500; Sept. 28 in Dallas, Texas, drew 9,000; Sept. 28 in Huntsville, Alabama drew 4,000; Sept. 29 in New Orleans, Louisiana, drew 5,000.
