Batista vs. Undertaker for the World Title in a Hell in a Cell match was announced for Survivor Series at this weeks Smackdown tapings.
Friday Night Smackdown! did a 2.6 rating for last week’s show which is basically what it has been doing for the past weeks.
John Bradshaw Layfield has found a new job – a contributor to the new Fox Business Channel! While his WWE commentary duties on Smackdown! and PPVs will not be effected, JBL will be on FBC almost every day and will be appearing on Neil Cavuto’s show which airs at 6PM and replayed at 9PM. It will not be the first time that JBL appeared on FOX as he was a regular contributor in the past and even held a position at CNBC as a financial analyst. Bradshaw was fired from CNBC three weeks after he was hired in mid 2004 after he did the Nazi walk and salute during a non-televised WWE show in Munich, Germany. “We find his behavior to be offensive, inappropriate and not benefiting anyone associated with our network,” said the network at the time. While JBL complained about it, he compared it to someone like Vin Diesel playing a Nazi during a movie. “I was playing a character,” he said. “They hung me out to dry.” Now JBL found a way to fire back at his previous employer comparing CNBC to WCW and FOX Business Channel to WWE. JBL told WWE.COM that he firmly believes that FBC will eventually win the war in the ratings against CNBC, “just like WWE did against WCW.” (thanks to Colin Vassallo)
