- SBTV Sport recently interviewed Liverpool footballer Daniel Sturridge, which you can watch in the video above. In the interview, Sturridge talked about being a wrestling fan when he was younger, but said that it wasn't something that he "really could've done" as a career. He also talked about being an Undertaker fan.
"The Undertaker was my favorite one (wrestler) because he was the scariest at the time with the music, the darkness and coming out to the ring," Sturridge said. "I've got a picture of me recently where I wore an outfit, and someone put me next to The Undertaker. I've [also] got a picture of myself wearing an Undertaker t-shirt from [when I was] a kid.'

- As noted, Ryback left the WWE RAW tapings this past Monday night before the show after a contract dispute with Vince McMahon. Ryback wrote a lengthy blog post on his WWE status, and said that the dispute wasn't over money, but rather the discrepancy in pay between winners and losers. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio this week that the dispute was indeed about money, although there were several other issues as well. One demand that Meltzer heard was that Ryback had asked for WWE to pay for hotels on the road, which Meltzer noted is covered in "pretty much any other profession."
