-We are looking for correspondents for the WWE, TNA, and ROH events this weekend. If you are going to any of the shows listed below and want to help, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-TNA Hardcore Justice takes place on Sunday in Orlando, Fla. at the Impact Wrestling Zone. The show is headlined by Austin Aries vs. Bobby Roode for the TNA Title and three four-way Bound For Glory Series gimmick matches. Join me for live coverage of Hardcore Justice as the show airs on Sunday night.
-ROH Boiling Point takes place on Saturday night in Providence, R.I. at the Rhode Island Convention Center with Kevin Steen vs. Chikara Grand Champion Eddie Kingston for the ROH Title in the main event. Chris Shore will be covering the show live as it airs on iPPV on Saturday. For ordering information, visit ROHwrestling.com.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Tokyo, Japan for the second night tonight with the following advertised talent for both shows: Sheamus, Randy Orton, Kane, Big Show, Rey Mysterio, Alberto Del Rio, Cody Rhodes, Daniel Bryan, Santino Marella, Kofi Kingston, Natalya, Yoshi Tatsu, and Kelly Kelly.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Shanghai, China at the Oriental Sports Center on Saturday with the same talent pool used in Japan.
-The WWE Smackdown crew wraps up the weekend on Sunday in Taipei, Taiwan at Linco Stadium with the same crew as the Japan and China shows.
-WWE is holding a SuperShow event tonight in Tupelo, Mississippi at Bancorp South Arena tonight with the following lineup: John Cena vs. Tensai in a Last Man Standing match, The Miz vs. Christian vs. Dolph Ziggler in a Triple Threat for the Intercontinental Title, and Ryback debuts in Tupelo.
-WWE is holding a SuperShow event on Saturday in Biloxi, Mississippi at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum with John Cena vs. Tensai in a Last Man Standing match, Dolph Ziggler vs. Sin Cara, and The Miz vs. Christian for the Intercontinental Title. The advertising questions whether Ziggler will cash in his Money in the Bank contract. Given that Sheamus is in Japan, I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that Ziggler won't cash in.
-WWE is holding another SuperShow event on Sunday in Texarkana, Ark. at Four States Fair Entertainment Center with the same talent pool as the other SuperShow events.
-Fred "Shockmaster" Ottman is 56 today. He was born on August 10, 1965. Ottman wrestled as Tugboat and Typhoon, but he is fondly remembered for this classic wrestling blooper Youtube.com/watch?v=cPtQHIc9QWw. It's the greatest debut in pro wrestling history... or something like that.
-Former ECW wrestler Amish Roadkill (a/k/a Michael DePoli) is 36 today. He was born on August 10, 1976.
-Former WWE wrestler Savio Vega (a/k/a Juan Rivera) is 48 today. He was born on August 10, 1964. He worked the Ring Ka King tapings as an agent and as a wrestler.
