– In another note from Hulk Hogan’s appearance on ESPN’s Sports Nation with Michelle Beadle this week, Hogan said he wasn’t sure what happened with his banner that was removed from the rafters at Madison Square Garden just one night after it was put up for Hulk Hogan Appreciation Night.

“The banner was a part of our show and was never intended to stay at MSG.”
– As noted, last night’s WrestleMania 31 go-home RAW episode drew 4.188 million viewers, up from last week’s 3.919 million viewers. The final rating for the show was a 3.03, making last night’s show the first RAW episode that has above a 3.0 rating since February 2nd, which is low for WrestleMania season.
