The show will also put Matt, Bryan & Nick Logan against Julian Star, Ryan Rush & Aden Chambers in six-man action and the Royal Rumble-like Annual Summit.
-- Roddy Piper beat up a comedian who calls himself "The Amazing Racist" last week at a comedy club, as part of an act. Piper was at Sam Tripoli's "Naughty Comedy Show" at the Improv in Los Angeles when the Racist--real name Ari Shaffir--talked smack to a porn star. Piper called the man on stage and bashed him into a piano, whipped him with a belt and then choked him. Of course, the whole thing was an act; Shaffir is a comedian who does this kind of thing in order to "film people's reactions."
