On Sunday July 15th’s IPW:UK event, former WWE/ECW star Kid Kash no showed. The promoter and the European agent both did their utmost to get flight info to Kash, which he had, but decided to go AWOL 2 hours before his driver turned up to meet him. This was the second chance IPW:UK had given Kash, after he pulled out last minute from an event in January. It’s doubtful he’ll get a third chance.

Here are some more live notes from the Great American Bash: After the opening pyro went off, sitting on the top was nearly impossible to see what was going on since the arena is pretty small compared to others. There were a lot of ‘Cena sucks’ chants (excluding the kids). [Thanks to Tita]
Joanie “Chyna” Laurer has been bumped from her previously scheduled appearance on Nancy Grace tonight due to the story of actress Lindsay Lohan getting herself arrested and booked on suspicion of drunken driving and cocaine possession this morning, just days after getting out of a six-week rehab stint. Laurer, and Figure Four Weekly writer Bryan Alvarez will likely appear on the show tomorrow night.
Speaking of DUI’s, former WWE star Dan “Waylon Mercy” Spivey was arrested on that charge a few days ago. He posted $500 bond and was released. Spivey made his first wrestling related appearance in probably about 12 years at a wrestling convention in New Jersey last month. Unlike the other guests on hand at the event, he pretty much kept to himself and didn’t appear to be too friendly. In fact, he wasn’t there too long as he just got up and left the convention without telling anyone.
The latest Iron Sheik incident took place at a show in Oshawa, ONT on 7/13. Basically, Sheik had yet another meltdown, this time on the way to the show. He refused to get out of his truck and went crazy, screaming at everyone trying to calm him down. When someone opened the door, Sheik threw his beer all over him. The police ended up clearing the crowd, which by this point word got out to the people at the show that Sheik was making a scene and everyone wanted to see him “in action.” There were people taping this incident, so it’ll probably end up on YouTube, if it hasn’t already.
