-The WWE Smackdown taping takes place tonight in Greensboro, N.C. at the Greensboro, Coliseum. The show will deliver the final hype for the WWE Payback pay-per-view. No matches were advertised on Raw for Friday's television show.

-Dot Net readers Robbie Jordan and Paul O'Brien attended the WWE Live Event in Lakeland, Florida over the weekend and disputed our correspondent's report that stated Bray Wyatt received no reaction. "They played the Wyatt family promo on the video screen before they came out and the crowd was hushed for his promo," Robbie wrote. "He gave a creepy speech about being the second coming of Jesus and the crowd was quiet, but I think they were listening in which to me is better than the tired "What" chants that Brad Maddox and Leo Kruger received earlier in the night. His whole match just had an odd methodical aura and pace about it and I think that is by design. At the end of the match, he kissed Ryder on the forehead before giving him a flatliner/downward spiral type maneuver and then as he left the ring, threw his jacket over his shoulder, put his hat back on, and slowly made his way to the back."
-Retired pro wrestler Magnum T.A. (a/k/a Terry Wayne Allen) is 54 today. He was born on June 11, 1959. Magnum was forced to retire from the ring due to the serious issues he suffered in an automobile accident on October 14, 1986. Magnum was the hottest babyface in the NWA promotion at the time of the accident and he was never able to return to the ring.
-Retired pro wrestler Mike Enos is 50 today. He was born on June 11, 1963. Enos teamed with Wayne Bloom as The Destruction Crew in the AWA, the Beverly Brothers in WWE, and they also worked as Minnesota Wrecking Crew 2 in the NWA. Enos retired from pro wrestling in 2000. For those keeping score at home, Enos worked as Blake Beverly, while Wayne was named Beau Beverly. I'll handle this one, Mike.
-There are no pro wrestling shows listed for ESPN Classic tonight.
