On TicketMaster.com there is a pre-sale running through midnight on Friday for the 8/23 Raw brand house show. You can type in "WWEMSG" for the pre-sale code. Also, there will be a SmackDown taping at the Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh on 8/26. There is going to be a pre-sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster.com with the password being "Batista".


Ted DiBiase, Jr.'s mystery tag team part for his WWE World Tag Team title shot at the Night of Champions pay-per-view is expected to be DH Smith, who was pulled off the road in early May following an apparent injury angle at the egregious hands of JBL.

Additionally, there is a fan report going around online saying that some fans met Ted DiBiase, Jr. at a local establishment down the road from the arena in Oakland after the 6/9 Raw. When asked who his partner will be at Night of Champions he simply said "the son of a Bulldog," who you'd have to assume is DH Smith. On WWE.com last week, the Ted DiBiase hyperlink on the match preview page took you to DH Smith's bio page on the website when clicked.
