- WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes was backstage at Raw last night. There were plans to use him live on camera during the segments with celebrity guest hosts ZZ Top, but WWE changed course and decided to tape those segments earlier in the day.
- A new match has been added to Sunday's Night of Champions Pay-Per-View. WWE United States champion Kofi Kingston will defend the gold in a Six Pack Challenge against Carlito, Big Show, Jack Swagger, MVP and The Miz.
- This week on WWE Superstars, we'll see Christian vs. William Regal and Evan Bourne vs. Jamie Noble. These matches were taped before Monday's Raw and there will be a third Superstars match taped at tonight's SmackDown/ECW tapings.
- FightLine.com has part one of their interview with Affliction VP Tom Atencio, who talks about their feud with the UFC, not using Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski and more. He also talks about Bobby Lashley, saying he thinks Lashley has a bright future in MMA and would like for Lashley to one day fight in Affliction, but he's under the impression that he's already under contract with another organization.

- As we just noted, WWE will tape the second part of WWE Superstars as well as this week's ECW and SmackDown tonight at the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia. As announced last week, ECW Champion Tommy Dreamer and Christian will be guests on The Abraham Washington Show tonight. It was announced last night on Raw that there will be a Champion vs. Champion match as this week's ECW Main event with CM Punk taking on Rey Mysterio. Jeff Hardy vs. CM Punk in a Steel Cage Match for the World Heavyweight Championship is being advertised locally as the dark main event.
