Matt Hardy was shaken up at the 4/23 RAW show in London. The finish called for Trevor Murdoch to go over Hardy with a Canadian Destroyer, which would be the first time the move was ever performed on WWE television. Because the spot was botched and Hardy got hurt, everyone was negative about Murdoch doing the move ever again. People noted that Murdoch had never done the spot before in a match, only while fooling around before shows with small guys.

The 6/2 Saturday Night’s Main Event will be a 90 minute show airing from 11:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. With so many PPV shows to promote around that time, this isn’t going to get a major promotional focus. Although not definite, the scheduled mid-August SNME will likely air in the 11:30 p.m. time slot as well.

While on a promotional tour in Japan recently, WWE officials stated they were staying out of Japan for the rest of 2007. They had done such weak crowds outside of Tokyo that on recent tours, they limited their tours to the Tokyo market.
