Thanks to Ryan Morgan for the following:
The talent list for the “Return of RAW on USA Network” is listed as follows on Ticketmaster.com: WWE Champion John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, the return of Triple H, Mick Foley, Mr. McMahon, Shawn Michaels, Shelton Benjamin, the Big Show, Kurt Angle, Ric Flair, Intercontinental Champion Carlito, the Masterpiece Chris Masters, Edge, Kane, Lita, Tag Team Champions Hurricane and Rosey, the Heart Throbs and many more. CARD IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE!
I am guessing they had to advertise the Heart Throbs to get people to pony up big money for that show. Seriously, we already knew about the return of HHH, but they better deliver Hogan and Austin if they are advertising them on Ticketmaster. It would actually make sense. What better show to start the angle towards the rumored Hogan-Austin WrestleMania match than the first one on USA?
Thanks to Brad Barnett for the following:
UPN Michiana (based out of South Bend, IN) will air the whole 2 hrs of Smackdown this Friday.
Thanks to Phil Lowe for the following:
I am not sure what’s up with WWE/Sky here in the UK, but they’ve just changed the schedule for Smackdown back to 2 hours.
As we reported earlier today, Smackdown will be airing in its two hour form in Canada and most, if not all, of the other foreign markets.
