- WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race and his former protégé in World Championship Wrestling, Vader, came to blows in front of fans at today’s “Legends of the Ring” convention in Monroe, New Jersey. Details remain sketchy, but Race punched Vader in the face after the two-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion became belligerent. Vader attempted to punch back at the 69-year-old—who now uses a motorized scooter to get around—but accidentally struck and hurt a worker who came between them. Race and Vader then went into the hallway to discuss their issue.

- Renee Paquette, an on-air personality for The Score Television Network in Canada, announced on Twitter Friday that she has been hired by WWE. She hosted Aftermath, the first WWE post-game show to be broadcast on television.

According to F4WOnline.com, it is rumored that Paquette will be utilized as a backstage interviewer on Raw.

Paquette is 28-years-old and was born in Toronto, Ontario. She has been listed among Canada’s Sexiest Sportscasters.

      Harley Race is almost 70 years old and is still kicking ass, even though he has to use a motorized scooter to get around. He’s always gonna be remembered as one of pro wrestling’s legit tough guys. I wonder what vader said that pissed him off, pretty sure that it was something disrespectful. My ma told me about one time that she met Harley Race and Ric Flair when they ate at a resturaunt in Minnesota that she was waitressing at. She recalled that he looked tough just sittin there eating his breakfast.
