-We experienced a server issue this morning that is obviously resolved now that you are reading this. Thanks for your patience with this matter.

-Today is the final day to contribute to the Kickstarter program for the unauthorized Extreme Championship Wrestling documentary that John Philapavage and Kevin Kiernan have worked on for the better part of ten years. As John mentioned when he joined me for audio, a $30 donation is the equivalent of pre-paying for a copy of the DVD, which is scheduled for an estimated December delivery. Of course, you can pledge as much or as little as you choose to contribute by visiting

-In case you missed the interview I conducted with John Philapavage, you can listen to it now in at (it is also available to Dot Net Members' in the audio section).

-ROH is taping television on Saturday in Baltimore, Maryland at DuBurns Arena. The taping will feature the Survival of the Fittest Tournament, and Kevin Steen will defend the ROH Title, and new ROH Tag Champions Steve Corino and Jimmy Jacobs will defend their titles. Plus, The Briscoes will meet The Bradavos in a challenge match. We are looking for correspondents for the ROH tapings. If you are going to the show on Saturday and want to help, contact me at

-Dot Net Members will be listening to the Dot Net Countdown audio show later today featuring Jake Barnett and Will Pruett running through all the news of the week. Well, at least I assume that's the case. The guys target today for their show, but sometimes life gets in the way. At any rate, the show will be up today or sometime this week. The members are already listening to the WWE Raw and WWE Night of Champions audio review from earlier this week, and they will be listening to the Dot Net Weekly audio show on Thursday. Join us on the ad-free version of the website by signing up for membership now via

-In the dark match held prior to Tuesday's Smackdown taping, Kofi Kingston defeated Dean Ambrose. There was no post-show dark match despite the fact that the company advertised Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Randy Orton in a Triple Threat. Likewise, Triple H did not appear as advertised.

-Longtime WWE employee and retired pro wrestler Jerry Brisco is 66 today. He was born on September 19, 1946. Brisco is no longer handling the timing of the shows as he did for many years. He gave up that role and his agent work when he suffered three strokes in June 2009. However, Brisco continues to be an active scout for WWE.

-There are no pro wrestling shows advertised for ESPN Classic tonight. The AWA show will return with a pair of shows on Thursday night/Friday morning. Check back tomorrow for the list of advertised classic matches.
