– Nobody from the office outright said it, but there was a feeling everyone was kept busy on the Saturday night before SummerSlam because they didn’t want anyone attending TNA wrestler Mick Foley’s stand-up comedy routine at the Hollywood Improv. A number of WWE stars were interested in attending but noted they were “kept busy.” Though the entire crew was in Los Angeles, nobody from WWE attended the event and Foley is quite popular among his peers.
– All week long, people in WWE kept using the term “Summerfest” when referring to SummerSlam. Among many, the feeling is that it is ridiculous to build a show around celebrities who don’t know the first thing about WWE. This is all based on Jeremy Piven referring to SummerSlam as “SummerFest” on RAW a few weeks ago during his guest host spot.
– As seen during the SummerSlam pay-per-view broadcast, Access Hollywood host Maria Menounos was in attendance. On her Twitter account, she refers to Randy Orton as “Horton,” saying her favorite parts of SummerSlam were the “Cena/Horton match” and Undertaker. She once again referred to the WWE Champion as “Horton,” tweeting back to a fan “u don’t like horton?” Nonetheless, Menounos considers herself more of an old-school wrestling fan, saying she loved Jimmy Snuka, Randy Savage and Bob Backlund.
