-- On July 31st, Abyss and former TNA star Scott Steiner will each appear as Grand Marshals of the Ohio State Fair parade. They will also be working an NWA event in the area that night. Shark Boy, NWA champ Adam Pearce and former TNA and WWE referee Mike Posey will also appear.
-- The Kansas City based Metro Pro Wrestling has already shut down. The promotion ran one show, taping three hours of TV for a slot that was set for "several local Comcast and Time-Warner systems." The company's official website and Facebook page have been shut down, and a number of wrestlers that worked the first show were informed that the project was finished. Former WWE creative team member Chris Gough headed up the project, in an effort to build a viable local independent. Dave Marquez worked production and ring announcing for the company. The owners of Memorial Hall were reportedly, "heavily involved with the financial end of the first taping," which drew disappointing numbers and ran too long as an event. The roster for the first set of tapings featured Trevor Murdoch, Tommy Dreamer, NWA champion Adam Pearce, Angel Medina of the ECW Baldies, Michael Strider, Mark Sterling, Jeremy Wyatt, Brett Young, Steve Girthy, Steve Fender, Derek Stone, Paul Diamond, Domino Rivera, the Hooligans, Nate Bash, Ben Sailer, and others.
