WWE issued a press release claiming WWE earned over 100 million fans across the company's various Facebook pages over WrestleMania weekend. The release notes this is more than the NFL and its member clubs combined or MLB and its member clubs combined. You can read the full release at

Shore's Slant: Those are certainly impressive numbers, but I still don't see how this social media presence is being monetized.
