The 8/24 Smackdown show was the lowest rated episode in years in the Hispanic demo.

Steve Austin made a speech to the talent at Summerslam that turned alot of heads. Austin said that he thought the wrestlers dress like slobs in public, and need to conduct themselves in a more professional manner. Austin also said that the company has no superstars, and its time for someone to step up and become one, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. He also went on to say that he only made a measly $200,000 in his first year in the company (said in front of wrestlers that make between $50,000 and $75,000).

Several OVW superstars spoke very highly of Shawn Michaels and Triple H regarding their visit to the developmental territory in Louisville, Kentucky yesterday. The DX due gave suggestions for some of the bouts that were being taped last night, talked to the entire roster about different facets of working in the ring, and observed the production of the OVW TV that will air this weekend. Both Michaels and Triple H were said to be very approachable and helpful.
