It's a huge month for the WWE, and it's getting started right here in downtown Omaha. The Monday Night RAW event returns to the metro for the first time in 3 years.
Superstar Damien Sandow appeared live on Daybreak Monday morning telling WOWT 6 News, "I love this city." He says the best part of the job "without a doubt, performing in front of the live crowd."
Sandow and other stars of the WWE have become a strong voice in the anti-bullying movement. They're part of the alliance that launched the be a STAR campaign in 2011. It stands for Show Tolerance and Respect.
The stars frequently visit schools to deliver that anti-bullying message. "It's not okay to bully. If you see bullying, it will show you the steps to take," Sandow says.
"A lot of people when they see the WWE, they see what we do in the ring," Sandow shared, but he says their legacy is in the impact they can have through community involvement.
The 31-year old WWE brand is in the process of expanding. The company just announced their app has been downloaded more than 10-million times since August 2012. The app will be the driving force behind the brand new WWE Network launching February 24. It's described as the first-ever 24/7 streaming network.
