-- WWE announcer Jim Ross says his segment with C.M. Punk on Monday's Raw was the highest-rated quarter-hour of the show. "#WWE Champ @CMPunk and my 'discussion' was highest rated QT hour on #RAW. I'm not asking anyone to pay for my damaged hat. Line of duty," Ross tweeted. "The hat @CMPunk stomped on was a $700 custom made 100% beaver made at Shorty's Ka-Boy Hattery in OKC Stockyards, for those asking."

The J.R. Appreciation Night segment was slotted in the second-half of Q9 (10:00 to 10:15 p.m. EST) and all of Q10 (10:15 to 10:30 p.m.) without a commercial break, which contributed to the strong rating.

-- A casting call has been released for TNT's "The Hero" reality show hosted by WWE part-time "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson. The call was posted Tuesday and closes on Wednesday.

According to the call, the producers are "not necessarily casting the fittest or the fastest" contestants for the competition show, but are "looking for everyday people who are not afraid to be themselves and who are ready to win big!"

The casting call suggests portions of the show will be filmed internationally, as contestants are required to have a passport and will "travel outside of the U.S. for a two-and-a-half-week adventure." Full details on the casting call available at RealityWanted.com - http://bit.ly/QWSvmY .

-- WWE has issued a new press release announcing the debut of "WWE Main Event" tonight on Ion Television. The release can be read at TV.BroadwayWorld.com .
