— Talent from all three brands are backstage at Raw. Ric Flair has not arrived yet, but one would think he would at least make some sort of farewell address.

— Actor Macaulay Culkin was at the Wrestlemania after-party. He’s been a fan for years and was shown ringside at WrestleMania 7.

— Jesse Ventura will appear on Larry King Live tomorrow night. He’s currently finalizing an action figure deal with Jakks Pacific, who will produce him as both an announcer and wrestler. Ventura will be doing a book tour to push his third book in April.

— The current plan is for WWE to hold the 2008 Draft Lottery on the April 21st three-hour RAW special. With all 3 brands appearing on RAW tonight, there is speculation that we’ll get some preliminary draft information tonight.

— The fireworks malfunction from WrestleMania can be seen at the very end of the Pay-Per-View broadcast. The incident happened while The Undertaker was celebrating his World Heavyweight title win after the main event. If you look at upper-left corner of the screen, the “streamer” fireworks were going off and you can see one or two shoot into the crowd when a cable broke.
