– Zack Ryder picked the WWE Classics Five-Star Match of the Week for this week and he chose the Intercontinental Ladder Match at WrestleMania X between Razor Ramon and Shawn Michaels. Ryder commented on WWE’s website:
“I was there for that at Madison Square Garden. It was the first time I saw a Ladder Match live. I think it was the first time anyone really saw a Ladder Match. You didn’t know what to expect because most people never saw a Ladder Match before. They were using it as a weapon and using it as a tool.”
– WWE will return to the Verizon Center in Washington, DC for a show on December 29th. CM Punk vs. Ryback is advertised. The pre-sale begins today and the password is WWEPUNK.
– Paul Heyman tweeted about the injury to UFC star Shane Carwin that broke on Wednesday:
“For those asking if @CMPunk and I would make fun of @ShaneCarwin’s injury … what are we? HEARTLESS?”
