- ECW Original New Jack will be appearing on the Bubba the Love Sponge Show on February 28th at 8:10am EST.
- Finlay defended his SMASH Championship against Tajiri on February 19th in front of a packed house of 3,000 at the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Japan. Finlay became a big star with Tajiri's SMASH but finished up with the company that night.
After the match, Finlay said, "Keep wrestling classic. If you ever need me, I will come back. This is not the end, this is the new beginning." Finlay then laid the belt in the middle of the ring and left.
While SMASH will be folding after their March 14th show following a fallout between Tajiri and promotion owner Masakazu Sakai, it's said that Tajiri is looking for backing to start a new company and most of the SMASH wrestlers are supporting him.
