By Ryan Clark | January 23, 2010
WWE is coming back to the South Shore Music Circus in Cohasset, Massachusetts on August 28th, 2010 and the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis, Massachusetts on August 29th, 2010.
The new issue of Toyfare magazine has an interview with Jeremy Padawer of Jakks Pacific, comparing the WWE and UFC toy lines.
According to a press release, WWE Hall of Famer and current road agent Jerry Brisco has signed with public relations company Eclectic Media Productions. The company will facilitate Brisco's public appearances, including his autograph signings and appearances at conventions as well as representing him in general around the country.
On his Myspace page, Jake "The Snake" Roberts has announced that he will be retiring from wrestling by the end of this year. "There comes a moment and I regret that it has happened, but I simply am unable physically to perform at the level that I find acceptable. I cannot do what I did 30 years ago, and my God, am I glad that I can't. But my love for what I've done in the last 35 years deserves more than I am capable of doing. I cherish every moment that I've had, good or bad, bottom line is I never had a bad moment in the ring. Any moment was something to treasure, and I can only do so by stepping away. Although the cheers and support are still there from you, the fans, I would be a liar to say that it is not only painful physically, mentally, but worst of all, deep in my heart.." Roberts stated that he hope to take in-ring bookings up until the end of the year, at which point he will look to take a non-wrestling role somewhere in the business.
