-- As noted several days ago here on the website, former WWE talent Ed Leslie (a/k/a Brutus Beefcake) said on the Miami sports talk radio show The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz Friday that he's joining Hulk Hogan in TNA Wrestling. He noted they're going to be "starting from scratch and going nWo style." It should be noted that he's said this before and nothing has ever happened. As of last word, TNA wasn't interested.

-- Kurt Angle was said to be upset over Abyss dropping him on his head during a recent iMPACT! match. It was considered a botched maneuver on Abyss' part.

-- Mick Foley donated the entire advance for his new book "Countdown to Lockdown", a reported $100,000, to charity reports The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The two specific charities are RAINN (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network) and Childfund International. Foley is also working once a week on the phones as a RAINN hotline volunteer.
