-TNA Impact Wrestling is live from the Cincinnati Gardens in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cincinnati Bengal Adam "Pacman" Jones is scheduled to appear and the TNA Championship tournament begins with Jeff Hardy vs. Chris Sabin in a Full Metal Mayhem match. Join me for live coverage of the show as it airs on SpikeTV at 8:00 p.m. CT tonight and I'll try not to screw up the report this time.

-We are looking for correspondents for the TNA show and the WWE and NXT shows as well. If you are attending any of these events and can help out with a report, drop us a line at

-WWE is at The O2 arena in Dublin, Ireland tonight. The card is headlined by John Cena vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Championship and Randy Orton vs. Big Show for the WWE Championship. I wouldn't rule out a Sheamus appearance either.

-Dot Net Members will be listening to the Dot Net Weekly audio show later today. Jason Powell and I will analyze all the news of the week, including the evolution of Kane in WWE and the return of Pacman Jones to TNA for one night. 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.

-NXT is at the NXT Arena in Tampa, Florida tonight for their weekly Thursday show. Kassius Ohno, Mojo Rawley, and Bo Dallas lead the listed talent for the show.

-Former WWE star King Kong Bundy (a/k/a Christopher Alan "Chris" Pallies) turns 56 today. Bundy retired from wrestling in 2006 and has gone on to act and did some stand-up comedy as well.

-PWG founder and former TNA star Joey Ryan (a/k/a Joseph "Joey" Ryan Meehan) turns 34 today. "The King of Sleaze" is still wrestling for PWG and other independents, including CWF Hollywood and called two matches with me at a recent PWX show in Charlotte, NC.

-Former WWE star Muhammad Hassan (a/k/a Mark Copani) turns 32 today. Hassan had the unfortunate luck to work an angle with the Undetaker where masked men in camo attacked Taker and carried out Hassan's sidekick Davari (a/k/a Shawn Daivari) just three days before London was bombed by terrorists. The backlash saw UPN force WWE to end the character and Copani's career.

-Former WCW announcer Tony Schiavone (a/k/a Noah Anthony "Tony" Schiavone) turns 56 today. Schiavone was the voice of Jim Crockett Promotions and later WCW, but not before calling lead play-by-play for WWE's SummerSlam in 12989 and Royal Rumble in 1990. He now works as a sports broadcaster for the Atlanta Braves AAA affiliate and Georgia Bulldogs football.

-There are not pro wrestling shows listed for ESPN Classic tonight.
