- WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper will tape his first episode as host of World of Hurt in Calgary on August 18th. This is the same wrestling reality show that Lance Storm was involved with for their first season. Piper is replacing Storm as the host of the second season. World of Hurt currently only airs in Canada.
- Regarding the WWE releases from last week, all those cut will be paid by WWE up until early November and until then, will be under a non-compete clause. They will be allowed to make certain appearances but can’t work with TNA at least until then.
- Provided his movie commitments don’t get in the way, WWE is going with the idea that The Rock will make an appearance at next year’s big three shows – the Royal Rumble and SummerSlam pay-per-views, and of course WrestleMania 28 to wrestle John Cena. Rock is also scheduled for a Survivor Series appearance this year and officials are hoping they can squeeze more appearances out of him.
