Trish Stratus Update, SmackDown! Talent Upset Backstage; More

Ryan Clark


– As of yesterday, only about 2000 tickets were sold to the Smackdown taping tonight.

– Trish Stratus will be on ESPN2’s “Cold Pizza” tomorrow morning.

– The Smackdown taping in Nashville will be the last live WWE show for nearly two weeks (not including the Iraq tour that some wrestlers will be going on) as the holidays hit full swing. WWE will return live with RAW in Biloxi, Miss. on December 27th.

– A lot of the Smackdown wrestlers are unhappy about having to go to Iraq during the holidays. The trip is being labeled as “voluntary” but it is pretty clear that those who are asked to go an don’t will not be looked upon well by Vince McMahon. Word is that Vince feels it is good for WWE to give back to the troops and expects the talent to feel the same way.

– Fangoria.com, a top horror movie website, reports that the WWE movie starring Kane will be now called “Goodnight,” not the previously rumored title of “Eye Scream Man.” The site also praised what they saw of the film during a set visit, especially praising director Gregory Dark. The movie is about a group of kids who have to clean up a hotel for their community service but end up getting locked in there with a maniac (played by Kane).
