Kavan Hashemian (KavanTCB.com) sent this in: Last night on I was walking by the Fed EX Forum (home of the 2007 Unforgiven PPV) in Memphis, Tennessee, and saw a promo video playing for Unforgiven. The video was nothing but the Undertaker. It appeared to be promoting the return of the Undertaker at Unforgiven.
Shawn sent this in: I was watching the Cleveland Indians/Tampa Bay Devil Rays game on Sports Time Ohio(where CAPW can be seen), and when they came back from an in-between inning break (7th or 8th, I believe), they were showing Nasty Knobbs working the crowd, getting them pumped up for the home half of the inning. The announcers for STO complimented him on his size and his ability to get the crowd going. They then joked about how his haircut was ‘Straight out of the 80’s’.

WWE’s free event in Venice Beach, California on Saturday attracted an estimated 19,000-20,000 people during the day. The event featured giveaways, autograph signings and several matches with a WWE ring setup on the beach. The event was described as being very unique. WWE cameras were filming lots of footage, so it remains to be seen if anything will be shown on TV or be kept as an extra for the SummerSlam DVD.
