Joe R. sent along the following to WrestleZone.com: An ad ran on Channel 9 that Kelly will have an interview segment on tonight’s 10pm newscast. My9 has been running interview segments with various WWE Superstars since Smackdown jumped to MyNetworkTV late last year.

Former WWE champion Bobby Lashley, who was set to fight Ken Shamrock in his second professional MMA bout, has been told his new opponent for March 21st. Lashley will now be fighting Jason Guida, a veteran of UFC’s "The Ultimate Fighter" reality show, and brother of top UFC Lightweight star Clay Guida. At one point, New Japan Pro Wrestling star and former UFC champion/PRIDE Fighting veteran Don Frye was considered for Lashley, but in the end the nod went to Guida. The bout will emanate from Pensacola, Florida on March 21st in a card promoted by, and headlined in a boxing match by – famous boxer Roy Jones.
