"Rumors are circulating that Tommy Dreamer is leaving WWE but leaving on good terms. This is NOT official as I have not talked to any one in WWE or to Tommy but I did get a few emails from some fans who said that Tommy told them at a personal appearance that he was leaving WWE. Dreamer is a passionate guy who loves the business particularly what it was during the early part of his career. I have great respect for Tommy Dreamer and wish him much happiness and good health. I expect to see Tommy in a wrestling ring as long as he is physically able to hold up ala Terry Funk, one of Dreamer's heroes. Tommy's twin daughters appeared for a season in my favorite TV show of all time, "The Sopranos" which was really cool."
-- Crunchgear.com has an article up looking at illegal online streams of WWE and UFC Pay Per View events. There is an interesting take on WWE going after illegal online streams earlier this year. "You’ll recall that WWE started going after illegal online streams earlier this year. The thing is, WWE claimed, quite like Fertitta here, that online streams were damaging its bottom line. That’s not necessarily the case. The very first pay-per-view that WWE actively patrolled illegal streams for, June’s The Bash, was among the least purchased pay-per-views of the year. If we were to follow WWE’s logic, that buyrates (the number of people who buy a pay-per-view) would increase once the streams were eliminated, well, then The Bash would have done better than the previous pay-per-view, May’s Extreme Rules. It didn’t: The Bash did 178,000 buys to Extreme Rules’ 213,000."
-- Devin Cutting sent this along: Brian Kendrick has been pulled from the Pro Wrestling Destination event in Reno, Nevada on January 16th, 2010. His replacement will be Michael Shane (aka Matt Bentley).
-- Roger Lockridge sent this one in: Happy 38th birthday to Christopher Daniels and Chris Hero.
-- Yesterday was Great Muta's 47th birthday and Jamie Noble's 33rd.
