- FCW star Leo Kruger picked up another loss at last night’s RAW live event in Charlotte, North Carolina. He was defeated by hometown star R-Truth. Kruger, who is South African, cut an anti-American heel promo before the match.

- There was a situation at the RAW event in Charlotte last night where Alex Riley appeared to be injured after losing a squash match to “Ryback” Skip Sheffield. Riley stayed in the ring holding his head after the match and was helped to the back by referee Charles Robinson, according to a fan in attendance.

- After CM Punk defeated Dolph Ziggler in the main event of the Charlotte event last night, he introduced wrestling legend Arn Anderson to the crowd. Punk called Arn someone going into the Hall of Fame who never got the credit he deserved. Anderson came out with John Cena.

Anderson said he brought Cena out because he felt that the spotlight should always be on a wrestler. Anderson talked about going into the Hall of Fame before the Horsemen music began to play and he embraced Cena and Punk. Anderson left up the ramp and was greeted by most of the RAW roster. One fan in attendance noted that the feeling of respect between the WWE talents and “The Enforcer” was very obvious.

    That’s probably true. The WWE probably wanted to show those who know very little about wrestling history that Arn Anderson is someone that wrestlers themselves respect. What’s wrong with that? I have little doubt that Anderson is one of the most respected guys in the industry, he’s a consummate professional, so even if the WWE was looking to get a cheap pop from the young and the ignorant, the respect from those who know is undoubtedly real.

    Hahaha Arn had to come out with Cena’s Bitch Ass just to make sure he got a cheap pop…. you can say whatever you want about a spotlight being on a wrestler, we all know it was to make sure that all the lil jimmys/jennys went nutz for your ass..
