– WWE World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio revealed on Twitter over the weekend that WWE will be returning to Mexico this September with live events in Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey.

– Last Monday, WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia sang the National Anthem in Phoenix, Arizona before an NBA game between the hometown Suns and the visiting Los Angeles Lakers. Video of her performance, as well as herself delivering pizzas to a row of fans with the Suns mascot, is available here.
