Josh Nason of F4WOnline.com recently interviewed UFC star Chael Sonnen, during which Sonnen claimed that he and CM Punk would be in Boston for Saturday's UFC on FX1 event, after which the two would be traveling to SummerSlam together. This is in fact not true, as CM Punk is scheduled for a SummerSlam AXXESS event on Saturday from 6-8pm, which runs at the same time the UFC event runs.

Rob Van Dam Comments on Current Match Quality

Rob Van Dam has posted a new audio blog which you can listen to at this link, and amongst many topics discussed, RVD talked about his return to WWE and offered the following on the quality of his matches since his return to the company:

"WWE is truly the best of the best when it comes to professional wrestling…What makes it the best? Way, way, way more people watch WWE than any other wrestling.

They have the best wrestlers…I can tell you from being in the ring with these guys that once I went to WWE I noticed right away the skill level, the well roundedness, the talent of the wrestlers in WWE, way above where I have been before.

Many of you noticed my matches were better, but you couldn't put your finger on why they're better. I'm telling you it's because I'm swimming in a different pool. Some of the other guys – their achievements are not as grand, the stars that they have wrestled are not as well-rounded. They're used to wrestling each other, and they're limited, and even though fans may prefer that, it's gonna be a small group of fans that support that."
