Former WWE Star Banned, Benoit News & Notes, RAW, More
By Ryan Clark | August 05, 2008
Irv Muchnick sent in the following yesterday: I recently filed a complaint with the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission to compel the Stamford Police Department to release the video of its interrogation last summer of Matthew T. Greenberg - a hapless University of Connecticut student whose Internet mischief has landed him the sobriquet of "the Benoit Wikipedia [link: www.wikipedia.org/] hacker." Pull up a chair while I explain. For the complete column today at SLAM! Wrestling on canoe.ca, Canada's leading interactive news site, go to http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Wrestling/.
Former WWE star Mark Jindrak (now known as Marco Corleone), Shocker (former TNA wrestler), El Terrible and El Hijo del Texano were all suspended for one year by the Tijuana commission because they did spots in a match where all pulled down the trunks of the other, which the commission doesn't allow, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. As a result, the wrestlers will be unable to compete in wrestling events taking place in Tijuana, Mexico for one full year.
AM RAW will air an hour earlier, at 1AM ET, on Sunday August 10th, 17th, and 24th, due to Olympics coverage on the USA Network.
