-- During Sunday night’s TNA No Surrender 2009 PPV, Mick Foley and Taz made a couple cracks at their former boss Vince McMahon’s expense on commentary. They joked about being yelled at through their headsets, and Foley said he can also call a title belt a “title belt” if he wants to. The story behind this is that Vince prefers the term “championship” rather than “title belt” or "strap", and yells at his announcers over the headsets if they don’t comply.
-- WWE broke a record in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the most fans attending a WWE show in that town, with over 10,000 at the SmackDown/ECW tapings on Tuesday night at the BOK Center.
