- Several articles in the Mexican sports media, including one in The Record, are reporting that Rey Mysterio's mask inspired the Adidas' design for the Mexico national soccer team jersey for the upcoming World Cup.
- As noted earlier, 2014 WWE Hall of Fame Inductee Jake "The Snake" Roberts wrestled at Saturday's Maryland Championship Wrestling event, teaming with Adam Flash and Ronnie Zukko to defeat Mustafa Aziz Daniels, Paul White and Mitch Miller. WrestlingINC.com reader Matt Lowy sent in these details from Roberts' appearance:
About 40 minutes before the 1st bell, the photo op/autograph line for Jake 'The Snake' Roberts was around 20-25 deep. A bootleg Legends of Wrestlemania backdrop was behind him for the photo ops. He stayed seated and was VERY quiet, and not very conversational.
Two hours later however with his wrestling role in the 6 Man Tag Main Event, he was very animated and seemed to be having fun in the ring. His ringwear was a 'HOF Finally' shirt, and blue/yellow baggy pants. A 'You Still Got It' chant started after a simple armbar, which was disappointing. He only took part in offensive moves, and didn't take any bumps. His set-up clothesline for the DDT looked solid, and then he did his arm call for the DDT, which had the crowd on their feet. DDT looked good, and what appeared to be the same snake used at Old School Raw on Dean Ambrose. Not too shabby for a guy on cancer treatment.
