WWE will be running a rare Monday night house show on December 29th in Richmond, VA while Monday Night Raw is taking place at the same time in Washington, D.C.

The reason WWE is doing this is because the weekend after Christmas is usually one of the best weekends of the year to draw, especially when it comes to kids.

Major Neck Surgery Likely for Santino

Santino Marella’s neck is reportedly in such bad shape that he will eventually require spinal fusion surgery, similar to the procedure Steve Austin underwent many years ago.

In related news, Santino has been promoting his own wrestling shows at his BattleArts Academy in Canada, and the in-ring product is reportedly similar to that of the BattleArts promotion in Japan, which is a worked-shoot style product, focusing on more submission based, realistic wrestling.

More WWE 2k15 Names

Both Rob Van Dam and Xavier Woods have confirmed they will be in the upcoming WWE 2k15 video game.
