Edge Headed To SmackDown!?, Heenan-WWE DVD Planned
-- As noted earlier, Linda McMahon started airing a new television commercial today showing a 2003 speech where opponent Richard Blumenthal was talking about Vietnam, where he never served. It ends with "If he lied about Vietnam, what else is he lying about?" The New York Times has a story on it at http://www.nytimes.com/
-- The Blumenthal campaign today pointed out that WWE received $10 million in tax credits from the state of Connecticut as an incentive for filming television in the state in order to create new jobs. Instead, the WWE cut 10% of its work force that year.
-- World Wrestling Entertainment will be releasing a two-disc DVD set highlighting the legendary career of WWE Hall of Famer Bobby "The Brain" Heenan on Tuesday, December 28. Below is the title's official synopsis: "Fans loved to boo Bobby Heenan but despite their vocal displeasure with The Weasel, everyone acknowledges he's the greatest manager in the history of sports entertainment. He guided members of the infamous Heenan Family to great heights in both the AWA and WWE, even occasionally stepping into the ring himself. He also further cemented his place in pro wrestling lore by becoming one of the great color commentators of all time, completely earning his 2004 induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Now, for the first time ever, fans can relive the Brain's magnificent career in Bobby The Brain Heenan, a 2-disc DVD that tells the life story of Heenan as well as collects his most famous matches, interviews, and moments."
