“Stone Cold” Scheduled For Raw, WWE Lies About Setting Attendance Record

— “Stone Cold” Steve Austin said on his Twitter account that he is scheduled for tonight’s Raw.

He also said he’s doing three hours of satellite media to promote the premiere of Tough Enough on the USA Network.

— WWE issued a press release touting WrestleMania XXVII as the most attended entertainment event in Georgia Dome history, with 71,617 in attendance.

WWE claims the previous attendance record at the Georgia Dome for an entertainment event was set by The Backstreet Boys, which attracted 65,658 fans on February 19, 2000. WWE’s statement is false as according to a 2009 article on, that particular Backstreet Boys concert drew 73,337, not 65,658.

    Its not really a lie, just a manipulation.
    The argument would be that the BSB concert was a music event and that the SEC was a sports event, thus WWE claims to be an entertainment company, which probably means they include themselves in with things like pantomimes and plays etc.
