Huge Friday Night Update: Talent, JBL Fishing Lure, RAW

Ryan Clark


Recently signed WWE developmental talent Sheamus Oâ<80><99>Shaunessy from Ireland has reported to WWEâ<80><99>s Florida Championship Wrestling territory in Tampa, FL.

In addition to the â<80><9c>dress upâ<80> costumes that WWE is now selling that Daniel talked about earlier in the week, WWE is now selling a JBL fishing lure.

A press release for the Monday Night Raw taping at Wembley Arena in London on October 16 lists Edge as one of the wrestlers appearing. It’s either a mistake or an early leak.

Sky Box Office in the UK has announced a three for the price of one deal for WWE. You can get No Mercy, Survivor Series and Armageddon, the last three PPV events of the year for the UK (others air for free on Sky) for 29.90 pounds.

Steve Austin appeared on “Loveline” last night with Dr. Drew. When a caller asked Austin if he would ever wrestle Hulk Hogan, Austin said that while he respected Hogan’s career and his fans, Hogan was “moving around slow and takes forever to fall down.” He pretty much killed the idea of the match ever happening and said it would “suck” if it did go down. Austin made it clear he didn’t think much of Hogan personally and added that Hogan was known for “stirring the pot” and was man*p
ulative.

Even though we may not plug it so much, WWE Heat is still up and running on WWE.com every week. This week’s show features the in-ring return for Ron Simmons.

Bobby Strouss sent this in: Bobby Strouss here with a note on the SVR 2008 commentary. In the ECW commentary, Joey Styles asks Tazz what his favorite sign was when he was wrestling, and he replies that his favorite was “Tazz is gonna kill you.” Looks like WWE is shooting on TNA, but using the video game to do so.
