  • Allan sent this in: I got the 2008 Woman of the Year edition of Maxim magazine and came across a couple page articles about Chris Benoit. Key phrase at the beginning was “telling you what the WWE doesn’t want you to know”, but most is all repetitive of all the other past write ups. Interesting read none the less.
  • According to police reports, Nick Hogan was driving at 100mph when the accident occurred this past August, far contradicting Nick’s statement that he was between “30 and 40mph”. And to make matters worse, new evidence against Nick will probably hammer his father for purchasing alcohol for him. While he’s still not legal to drink, his daddy the Hulkster was the one who bought the beer on that day. According to the police, a receipt from a liquor store was placed into evidence which was registered at 2:14PM on that day for $78 for beer and ice. One of the clerks at the store said that Hogan bought the beer and his son Nick and other friends were tagging along. After buying the beer, Hulk, his son and his friends spent the rest of the day on his powerboat in Clearwater, FL., drinking beer and enjoying the sun. Meanwhile, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton on his popular website perezhilton.com obtained pictures from that day which were taken hours before the car accident that left Nick’s best friend John Graziano almost brain dead. According to the person who submitted the pictures and was there on another boat that day, the Hogan’s and their friends were having a good time on the boat and they pulled up beside his boat and started to taunt the girls who were accompanying him.
  • WWE could be announcing soon that Steve Austin will be appearing at the Raw 15th Anniversary show on December 10. Austin will be doing promotional work for the three-hour show tomorrow. I’ve also heard reports that WWE has contacted Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson about appearing as well.
  • TNA will be taping Impact over the next two weeks on Monday and Tuesday in Orlando, FL at Universal Studios on December 3 & 4 and December 10 & 11. The company will also run House Show events in Monterrey, Mexico on December 14 and in Mexico City, Mexico on December 15.
  • WWE will be taping Smackdown and ECW in Florence, South Carolina on Sunday instead of Tuesday. Dale Sturgill sent us word that local advertising is promoting a Batista vs. Edge match for the World Title that will likely end up as a dark match. This show will air Thursday head to head with the second hour of TNA iMPACT!.
