Also, congrats go to former WWE superstar Jacques Rougeau Jr. (The Mountie), 47, who was married in the ring on 12/29 at an independent show in Verdun, Quebec. Rougeau married his long time girlfriend Nancy Menard. Afterwards, Rougeau wrestled in the main event. The show drew 2,200 fans (more than doubled the attendance at the recent TNA house show).

WWE.com has an article up at WWE.com looking at the company going HD starting at the beginning of this week.

Paul sent this in: I was watching MSNBC around 2am and they were talking about Mike Huckabee and his political campaign, they mentioned that he drew a big crowd (I didn’t get the city he was in) but they said the crowd might have been big because of Chuck Norris and Ric Flair being there.
