- Don't forget to vote on the latest group of matches for the hottest divas & knockouts tournament!
- Mark Henry has undergone surgery and has said that if he doesn't come back 100%, he might be retiring. I sincerely hope that he fully recovers and can stay on the roster for a while longer, as I've always been a fan of him and I think he's doing the best work he's ever done in this past year or so.
- Raw is going to be 3 hours starting July 23rd. This is either going to be AWFUL or AWESOME. Rumors say it might be a pre-show, and if that's the case, I hope they use that to do all their stupid recap bullshit so I can fast forward the entire thing and never have to watch it on the 2 true hours of the show.
- WWE is interested in Ric Flair's daughter, meanwhile TNA has signed Brooke Hogan? What's going on?
- Dusty Rhodes is the new GM of NXT and it seems like they're definitely going to include more FCW people right off the bat. Maybe there's a reason to watch NXT now?
- Konnan says that Sin Cara and/or his posse pulled a gun out on Alberto Del Rio in the past. I'd put this in the speculation pile as well, folks, as this is just a story Konnan is telling. If it did happen, I wonder how they're able to work together in the same company when that happens. If it didn't, then Konnan's talking out of his ass for attention, and that's a shame. Either way, interesting.
