Gerald Brisco Suffers Stroke, WWE Network Launch Date

— While WWE has not publicly announced a launch date for the new WWE Network, besides the recent announcement that it’ll debut at some point in 2012, officials are said to be looking to launch it around the same time as WrestleMania 28 (April). Fan interest is at a yearly high around that time.

— WWE Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco suffered a stroke last night. Brisco worked as a road agent for years until suffering a stroke several years back. He had been working for WWE as a talent scout. We wish him a speedy recovery and a healthy future.

— Scott Hall posted a message on Twitter following ESPN’s profile Wednesday night thanking fans for their support. He wrote, “Thank u for all your nice comments & for always pulling for The Bad Guy!”

— Scott Hall was trending on Twitter last night. Justin Credible was also trending on Twitter, apparently due to Justin Bieber thinking it was about him.
