- The Superior Court in Ontario ruled against WWE Hall of Famer Abdullah The Butcher on November 5th in an attempt to get the lawsuit filed against him by indy wrestler Devon Nicholson thrown out of court.

The court ordered Abdullah to pay $3,500 in court costs for the motion that was turned down, within 90 days.
- Former heavyweight boxing champion Riddick Bowe will make his pro wrestling debut for the Preston City Wrestling promotion in the UK, either on their February 28th or March 1st shows. He will be facing Dave Rayne.
