— As reported on earlier, WWE was going to be releasing a “Top 50 Superstars of All-Time” DVD this year. While the actual Top 50 isn’t known, the cover features the following wrestlers as of now: The Rock, Eddie Guerrero, Pat Patterson, Big show, Rey Mysterio, Edge, Jerry Lawler, Shawn Michaels, Gorilla Monsoon, John Cena, Jimmy Snuka, Dusty Rhodes, Jake Roberts, Moolah, Terry Funk, Curt Hennig, Junkyard Dog, Triple H, Roddy Piper, Ricky Steamboat, Ted DiBiase, Randy Orton, Sgt. Slaughter, The Undertaker, Kane, Iron Sheik and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
— As noted earlier here on the website, names that remain in discussion for next year’s 2011 WWE Hall of Fame in Atlanta during Wrestlemania 27 weekend include Ron Simmons, Lex Luger and Bill Goldberg. There was also interest in inducting the Four Horseman as a group, but that would only depend on Ric Flair’s availability and if he wasn’t still signed with TNA after this year. The same discussion was made about Sting, but that again depends on his contractual status with TNA.
— As reported on earlier this week, actor Freddie Prinze, Jr. was rehired by WWE as a producer and director for the company. Prinze got in touch with WWE back in August and showed an interest in working again, but didn’t want to travel to Stamford. He is slated to be part of all the television shoots involving backstage pre-tapes, on-site vignettes and will join creative meetings via conference call from Los Angeles. Prinze is also expected to fly in to most of the television shoots, but not all.
