Mason Ryan Starts W/ WWE, Foley, Hogan/Flair News, & More
-- Mick Foley was featured in the most recent edition of the Hollywood Reporter in a photo from the Rally for Fear and/or Sanity held by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert last week. Foley was posing with The Daily Show's Larry Wilmore and Aasif Mandiv.
-- Alan sent this one along: Marvel Comics' "Deadpool Team-Up #888" is an entirely wrestling based issue with a fictional wrestling federation, lots of parodies of current and former stars including a promo at the end by Deadpool that is a strange Hulk Hogan/Ric Flair mash up.
-- FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion Mason Ryan worked the opening night of SmackDown!'s eleven-day live event tour of Europe, beating Chavo Guerrero Thursday night in Belfast, Ireland. The developmental wrestler also worked a dark match at Tuesday's SmackDown! taping in Bridgeport, Connecticut, defeating Trent Barreta. Ryan looks just like Dave Batista. Finlay is also touring with the brand. He beat Tyler Reks in the opening match of the Belfast event.
