- It’s interesting that WWE has re-named Bragging Rights to Uprising because that is the name of a recent Dragon Gate USA pay-per-view and the name of a MMA pay-per-view from Australia last year that featured Ken Shamrock.
– As noted before, Bret Hart recently took up for Drew McIntyre on his Twitter and said that he thought Drew was being wasted on WWE Superstars. The story goes that one reason Hart is a fan of McIntyre is because at Hart’s last WWE match in Turkey where he teamed with Edge and Rey Mysterio to take on McIntyre, Cody Rhodes and Alberto Del Rio, the three heels were arguing backstage because all of them wanted to lose to the Sharpshooter. Bret ended up winning the match for his team with the Sharpshooter on Del Rio.
– WWE will be going to South Africa in early July and will run two shows on the 9th and 10th in Johannesburg where The Corre member Justin Gabriel will be wrestling as a top babyface. Gabriel is from South Africa and his father was a wrestling promoter in the country. Gabriel will be teaming with Randy Orton to take on Christian and Sheamus.
