Ryan Clark


— Carlito will be wrestling SmackDown star Matt Hardy in a U.S. Championship Match at the tri-branded WWE house show in Lubbock, TX on June 27th. Rey Mysterio is also scheduled to wrestle on the card as he’ll be teaming up with Big Show & Batista to take on Edge, MVP and Mark Henry in Smackdown Six-Man Tag Team Match. Triple H is scheduled to defend the WWE Championship against Randy Orton in the main event.

— WWE announcer Josh Mathews now has an account on the WWE Fan Nation social networking site. In his first blog he notes that this weekend’s edition of WWE Heat is the final episode of Heat ever. “Make sure to watch The Weekly Top 5 on WWE.Com every weekend and don’t miss the FINAL episode ever of Heat as well, 513 episodes and now its all over!”

— Former WWE star Orlando Jordan appeared on the Monday Night Mayhem radio show this past week. Jordan was asked about Michael Hayes’ much talked about backstage altercation with Mark Henry. Jordan said the whole situation is “very unfortunate,” “sad,” and “a shame.” Orlando said that he never had any problems with Hayes, and that the two had a pretty good relationship. Jordan said that he had a lot of respect for Hayes during his time in the company, noting that he gave him some encouraging words when he was starting out in WWE. Jordan said that Mark Henry is a good friend of his as well. However, Jordan said that if the story is indeed true, WWE should consider removing Hayes from his position. Jordan said he can only speak for what he saw, but cannot speak for what may have happened behind closed doors or behind people’s backs.
