Kazuchika Okada Is Coming To TNA, Lesnar, Why Jerry Springer Is Hosting RAW

-- New Japan Pro Wrestling will be sending Kazuchika Okada, a top young prospect, to TNA. His stay is said to be for "unspecified period of time". New Japan has a long tradition of sending their young prospects to the US to gain experience. Okada will work on January 31st for New Japan, against Hiroshi Tanahashi, and then make his way to the US after that.

-- Nick Fox sent this along: I attended a taping of the Jerry Springer Show this morning in Stamford, CT. Before the taping, Jerry asked if there were any questions from the audience. I ended up asking him "Why did you want to guest-host Monday Night Raw? He pondered for a second, but then said "Because they asked." What was funny is that he didn't know the date of RAW he was hosting and he seemed confused. Someone on his security team had to tell him it was February 15th. He then said, "I do stupid things!" and I wished him Good Luck!

-- Brock Lesnar will be appearing on ESPN at 11 a.m. tomorrow morning to talk about his health and his comeback.

-- The Awesome Kong-Bubba fight is as real as it gets. Some were skeptical with Russo and Bischoff but it was the real deal. She was legit pissed. I'm going to have MAJOR exclusive updates on this later tonight on WZR Radio from 7-9EST.
