-- MEXPW will debut in the U.S. this January with live events in Southern California followed by shows in Mexico. The company is a joint venture between legendary hardcore luchador Damian 666 and former XPW writer/producer Mike Hartsfield. "In all my time wrestling in the U.S., one of the best things was being XPW Tag Team Champion," Damian said. "XPW had a style that no other company had and that was the style of me and my partner Halloween and X Fly and now of my son Bestia. We have taken our style all over Mexico. And now, we want to take that style back to the U.S. and I know that Supreme and the others think they are more hardcore, more extreme and better. We are going to prove them wrong. But I am not a U.S. promoter and most U.S. promoters do not have the cajones to do the kinds of matches we want to do. That is why I called Mike Hartsfield. He knows what we want. I heard that he was thinking about doing something new with Mexico and the U.S. and I told him THIS is what you should do. Let's combine Mexico and XPW. Let's make MEXPW!"

-- As noted earlier, Kurt Angle did an interview with The Void claiming that Dana White asked him to fight Kimbo Slice in the UFC. "The reason Dana White wanted me so quickly though, is because he wanted to put me in the next available PPV against Kimbo Slice," said Angle. As with all of Angle's UFC stories, UFC President Dana White told FightLine.com that the story wasn't true, you can check out the article at this direct link by clicking here.
