By Chris Shore

-TNA Impact Wrestling is continuing its run of taped shows from New York City. Tonight's show is headlined by Team 3D vs. The Hardy Boyz. Join Jake Barnett for live coverage of the show as it airs on SpikeTV at 8:00 p.m. CT.

-WWE NXT was taped at Full Sail University and is headlined by Adrian Neville vs. Tyler Breeze for the NXT Championship. There are alos two more tag team tournament matches tonight. Join Zack Zimmerman for live coverage of the show as it airs on the WWE Network at 8:00 p.m. CT.

-Dot Net Members will be listening to part one (and possibly part two) of the Dot Net Weekly audio show. Part one will feature Jason Powell and I discussing all the news of the week. Part two will feature our preview of this Sunday's SummerSlam PPV event. If you enjoy our All Access audio, help support Dot Net by signing up for membership to the ad-free version of the website via the Dot Net Members' Signup Page.

-Sonjay Dutt is replacing Jay Lethal on the "Lethal Injection Tour" in October for Canadian Wrestling's Elite. Lethal is unable to attend the shows due to contractual obligations with ROH. Jimmy Jacobs will still appear as advertised. You can find out more at CWECanada.ca.

-WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund turns 65 today. Backlund holds the number two spot for longest WWE (then WWWF) Championship title reign, winning the belt from Superstar Billy Graham on February 20, 1978 and losing it to the Iron Sheik on December 26, 1983, a full 70 months. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013.

-WWE wrestler Kofi Kingston (a/k/a Kofi Nahaje Sarkodie-Mensah) turns 33 today. Kingston has been mired in the mid-card for years now despite having several brushes with clear storylines. He is currently in some sort of alliance with Big E and Xavier Woods.

-Former NWA star "Beautiful" Bobby Eaton (a/k/a Robert Lee Eaton) turns 56 today. Eaton was one-half of the Midnight Express, one of the most successful tag teams in NWA history, with two different partners, as well as a member of the Dangerous Alliance, which was managed by Paul Heyman. Eaton is considered a wrestler's wrestler due to his smooth in-ring style.

-The late "Hot Stuff" Eddie Gilbert (a/k/a Thomas Edward (Eddie) Gilbert, Jr.) would have turned 53 today. Besides being married to both Missy Hyatt and Madusa, Gilbert was also a booker for many years in various territories, including Eastern Championship Wrestling before Paul Heyman took over and turned it extreme. He died of a heart attack of February 18, 1995 at age 33

-The late Gino Hernandez (a/k/a Charles Eugene Wolfe, Jr.) would have turned 57 today. He was found dead on February 4, 1986 in a mysterious death that was officially ruled a cocaine overdose. He was 26. Instead of telling you something about his career, I will simply point you to The Triumph and Tragedy of WCCW documentary and watch Gary Hart talk about Gino. If you can do it without shedding a tear then you have reached emotional control level stone.

-Jeff Farmer, the man who played the "NWO Sting" in WCW turns 52 today. As crazy as it sounds, NWO Sting was more over in Japan than real Sting during 1997. He changed his name to Super J in 1999 and regularly teamed with Masahiro Chono before going back to the NWO Sting gimmick in the indies. As of 2010, he was project manager for GEAR (Genetics, Exercise, and Research), a research program at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

-There are no classic pro wrestling shows scheduled for ESPN Classic tonight.
