– Next week’s edition of WWE Monday Night RAW takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA. Over the weekend prior to the show, the venue will also be hosting competitions for Professional Bull Riders. When these shows take place, they have to truck in a lot of dirt to place on the arena floor. The Sunday event ends at 2PM local time, and arena sources say the dirt won’t be removed until 1PM local time on Monday.
This means that WWE will be in an extreme rush to set up for Monday Night RAW, as they usually begin that set up very early in the morning. This will mean a hectic day for everyone involved.
– Stan sent word that this past Friday’s WWE SmackDown had 34 minutes and 8 seconds of in-ring action, down from the previous week.
– Jack Swagger will be appearing at the FCW show on January 27th from the Charlotte Harbor Events Center in Punta Gorda, Florida.
– Former WWE Women’s Champion Madusa (Alundra Blayze) says she still owns the title belt that she trashed on WCW Monday Nitro years ago and would like to do one final angle with WWE and let Beth Phoenix wrestle for it.
Madusa says Beth may be the best women’s wrestler out today but says WWE is “stifling her” from hitting the pinnacle of her career.
Here’s a video she put online last weekend:
