– WWE has added The Rock’s concert from Monday’s RAW Supershow for download on iTunes. The song was set to the tune of Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock.”

– This past weekend was the first in a while where Mark Henry was over his injuries enough that WWE didn’t book him in situations to protect him.

– WWE Diva Kelly Kelly was filming an interview with Maria Menounos for Extra TV today. WWE’s website has an interview up with Eve Torres and Divas Champion Beth Phoenix, expressing frustration that Menounos didn’t choose them as guests.

– Speaking of Kelly, she granted her first wish with the Make-A-Wish Foundation at the recent RAW Supershow in Boston, Massachusetts. Kelly met WWE Circle of Champions honoree Jerry. Kelly also granted another second wish that night – meeting a kid named Jordan who was there to meet John Cena.

Every year there is a group of WWE talents who must miss the Hall of Fame ceremony due to Axxess autograph sessions. This year it will be Mick Foley, Wade Barrett, Drew McIntyre, Ted DiBiase, Brodus Clay with his dancers, Hornswoggle, Kane, Paul Bearer, R-Truth, Kaitlyn, AJ Lee, Teddy Long, Mason Ryan, Jinder Mahal and Layla who have to do Saturday night autograph sessions from 6-10pm.

– Zack Ryder and his fans managed to get “#GetRyderOnTeamTeddy” trending worldwide on Twitter today.

– As noted before, WWE is bringing Madusa into WrestleMania weekend, likely to do interviews for the WWE Network. WWE is looking to have one woman inducted into the Hall of Fame each year so it’s possible they could choose her for a future induction. Madusa had a ton of heat on her after trashing the Women’s Title on WCW Nitro years ago and back in 2001, she was considered off-limits to be signed by the company.

Here are some recent WWE attendance figures:

* RAW on March 9th in Toronto drew 7,600 fans for $340,000
