The Iron Sheik is doing a stand-up routine night at the Legendary Comedy Store on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles. As noted earlier here on the site, when WWE officials found out he would be in the area, they asked him to come by for tonight's Raw taping at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. It remains unknown if he will be used tonight, but the plan is for him to be backstage in case he's needed. The WWE Hall of Famer will be performing tonight at 10:00 p.m. local time — with Raw ending at 8:00 p.m.
In an update on independent women's wrestler Serena Deeb's status with World Wrestling Entertainment, she has not signed a contract with the organization, but has been offered one and is expected to come to terms.
