-- After a grueling work schedule the past few weeks involving formatting a three-hour Raw, an episode of Raw without commercials, a pay-per-view, and two weeks worth of television within a few days, the creative team was relieved to finally get some time off following Wednesday's SmackDown/ECW taping in Bakersfield, California. Furthermore, the production crew was thrilled to have the next eleven days off. Both creative and production had been burned out in recent weeks, to say the least.
-- In a first, a wrestling act was featured on NBC's America's Got Talent this past week. Midwest-based indy wrestlers Steve Boz and Austin Roberts performed some sort of wrestling act alongside model Koa-Marie Turner on Wednesday's edition of the talent show. Unfortunately, their performance did not go over too well with the audience as well as judges Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and David Hasselhoff. You can see video of their appearance at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pf6dLkluBqk
-- Independent wrestler Matt Riviera is a contestant on the VH1 reality show Megan Wants a Millionaire, which is set to air this fall. For more information on Riviera, visit www.MattRiviera.com.
