– On this day back in 1999, WWF SmackDown began airing on the UPN network.
– On his Formspring account, Seth Rollins was asked by a fan, “”Hey Tyler Black, Do you think you should cut your hair short so you don’t look like look like WWE John Morrison?”
The former Ring of Honor champion replied, “Hey stupid question asker, no. I had long hair first. I had a beard first. And I can outwork him any day of the week.”
– Matches for tonight’s WWE SmackDown on SyFy include Christian vs. Daniel Bryan, Sin Cara vs. Heath Slater, Kelly Kelly vs. Tamina, Ted DiBiase vs. Randy Orton, The Great Khali vs. Ezekiel Jackson and Sheamus vs. Mark Henry in the main event. Bret Hart will be tonight’s guest General Manager.
