LATE MONDAY UPDATE: Raw notes, WrestleMania fallout, stock price, stock, more

By Bryan Alvarez | bryan@wrestlingobserver.com | @bryanalvarez

-- Very sorry for the very late update today. With all the craziness of WrestleMania we never got it hammered out who would have time to do it, and I think in the end it was supposed to be me, so I apologize. A quick update on everything and we'll have more tomorrow.

-- From Ronda Rousey's Twitter:
The night: Historic.
The moment: Electric.
The Rock, Ronda & the WWE Universe: Magic.
We're just gettin' started...

-- Regarding Raw, I haven't seen the show on TV tonight but I was there live, and the last hour was nothing like what you saw on television. I saw the end of the main event and they turned the crowd audio down to a ridiculous degree. Tonight on Observer Radio Dave and I will talk the entire show in full detail from both a live and TV perspective. It'll be the fourth of four straight shows so make sure you go back from the last few days to check out all the live coverage from the weekend.

-- For those who didn't see the post-show on the Network, Sting was interviewed and was non-committal about his future. Fans completely drown him out with chants for Undertaker. He acknowledged them but then said he didn't know what the future held. They brought out Bo Dallas for the happy ending spot with Sting laying him out with the death drop.

-- Vince McMahon is super high on Lana and apparently has big plans for her.

-- Dave's notes on the WWE conference call today are up here. They announced over 1.3 million subscribers and are clearly confident that the number is going to continue to rise since they've earmarked a ton of new Network shows, not to mention hiring names such as Jerry Springer and Seth Green to work on various programs.

-- WWE stock had a roller coaster day, finishing at $14.09, down over two dollars.

-- Latest on Global Force Wrestling here. They have July, August and October dates, but have not yet announced any sort of television affiliation.

-- TNA also announced a new deal with the Fight Network, details of which you can check out here.

-- All of the drug tests from UFC 184 and UFC 185 came back clean.

-- There is one week left to register for the trials to be on the first ever US World Combat Wrestling team! This is your chance to represent the U.S. at the first Combat Wrestling World Championship in Varna, Bulgaria. DEADLINE TO REGISTER FOR THE.U.S. TRIALS April 4th! Don't miss out! Questions about pre-registration? E-mail Stephen Koepfer at samboinfo@yahoo.com with any questions.

-- If you haven't heard Jeremy Borash on the Howard Stern Show yet, there are some clips available up here.
