In Houston, Booker T filmed a commercial for his PWA promotion as himself, not as King Booker, and made no reference to being apart of WWE.

As noted earlier here on the site, there is talk of Mark Henry moving to Raw and Umaga switching over to the Smackdown brand. Vince McMahon likes the idea of an Undertaker vs. Umaga program. This could have changed now though since Cena is injured and out.


Stone Cold Steve Austin recently did a short interview with iF Magazine regarding his future as an actor. Austin told the magazine the following: "[Acting] is what I'm pursuing full time. I'm through with wrestling. Wrestling was one of the best jobs, the most fun I've ever had in my life, and I had a good time doing it. Fifteen years on the road, it's time to do something else. I'm trying to find the number two movie right now so we can start shooting ASAP. I'm working on certain projects here in Los Angeles. That's what I want to do with the rest of my life. I had a ton of fun on The Condemned and I learned so much. I also realized that I have a ton more to learn and improve. I remember my first wrestling match. I was pretty terrible, but I turned into a very good professional wrestler. My goal is to turn into a very good actor."


Rey Mysterio is probably going to be getting a lighter schedule as he didn't work any house shows two weekends ago. When coming back, he had asked for a lighter schedule where he'd have one week off from house shows per month. He was initially turned down, but with everything that's gone down over the past months, they seem to be a bit more receptive to giving veteran talent time off from house shows.
