-- As was previously reported, the next music video from The Smashing Pumpkins, "Owata", will include the wrestlers Raven, Cheerleader Melissa, and Shelly Martinez. Billy Corgan was quoted as saying the video "is based on brutal Japanese style of women's wrestling." The wrestling segments of the video will be filmed at the home of SHIMMER and AAW, located in Berwyn, IL at the Eagles Club. This will go down on Friday, May 27, starting at 6:00 PM. Also, the first 65 fans who pre-order front-row tickets to AAW's "Day of Defiance" event on Friday, June 17th will be granted access to the music video taping. Those front row tickets are $15 each.

-- Mick Foley was not TNA's original choice for the role of Network Consultant. Company officials had a nineties star in mind for the role but couldn't come to terms on an agreement—it was not Bill Goldberg.
