-- The following matches are advertised for tonight's episode of AWA Wrestling on ESPN Classic: Fargo vs. Hennig, Boris Zhukov vs. Patterson, Brad Rheingans vs. Ali Khan, and an appearance from the Midnight Rockers.
-- On his MySpace page, Shad Gaspard noted that Bob Sapp ended up getting the role of Ukafa in Conan. We noted this last night here on the website.
-- ROH issued this statement today inviting Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen to their WrestleMania weekend shows. This is in response to Guillen's recent tweets that he couldn't find WrestleMania 26 tickets and that they were too expensive. Here is the release: OPEN INVITATION TO OZZIE GUILLEN FROM RING OF HONOR WRESTLING Friday, February 26, 2010 (Bristol, PA- February 26, 2010)- Internationally acclaimed Ring of Honor, seen in the feature film The Wrestler starring Mickey Rourke and seen every Monday night at 8 on Mark Cuban's HDNet, has issued a public invite to Chicago White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen and as many of his family and players as he wants to bring, to come see some REAL pro wrestling. This comes as an answer to Guillen's recent tweet ("Looking for tickets to go to wrestlemania, I need help with that, they r way too expensive"). On Friday, March 26 and Saturday, March 27, the bell will ring for ROH in the North Gym of Phoenix College on the biggest wrestling weekend of the year. Ring Of Honor—where such stars as CM Punk, Samoa Joe, Bryan Danielson, A.J. Styles and many more came from—is, simply put, the best wrestling in the world. With its use of Japanese, Mexican and even MMA schools of combat, its intensity level has garnered raves around the world. To see ROH World Champion Tyler Black, Tag Team Champions Briscoe Brothers, and the rest of the ROH roster, is to see the finest in the world. Ring of Honor will plant Guillen's party, no matter how large, right up front. With day games in Tucson against Arizona Friday and Colorado Saturday, there will be plenty of time for Guillen to change and officially become an ROH fan. And we have no doubt that he will. There is no harder-hitting, higher-flying, top-notch level of competition than in Ring of Honor…the company where stars are born. With the legendary Jim Cornette in the house, and a host of incredible matches, we have no doubt that Ozzie and Company will have a great time. So, Mr. Guillen, would you rather go to the overpriced, overhyped "sports entertainment" of the weekend…or would you rather see THE REAL THING as our guest?
