– David Hart Smith teamed with Bobby Lashley at yesterday’s IGF wrestling show in Japan, losing to the team of Kendo Kashin and Kazuyuki Fujita. Also on the show, Vladimir Kozlov lost to Eric Hammer in under 3 minutes. Kozlov was using the name Alexander Kozlov.
– WWE’s website has a new article up on RAW SuperShow “matches we want to see.” They list Kevin Nash vs. Sheamus, Daniel Bryan vs. CM Punk and Evan Bourne vs. Justin Gabriel.
– The UAPWM (USA To Africa Pro Wrestling Mission) promotion will debut this October with a tour to the Congo, culminating with “Rumble in the Jungle II” on October 12th in Kinshasa, Congo. Shows are planned right now for Katanga, Mbujimayk, Goma, Bukavu, Lubumbashi and finally Kinshasa.
Three of the shows will be at outdoor soccer stadiums and the big show at Martyrs Stadium will see Bill Goldberg come out of retirement. Also at that show, George Foreman, Laila Ali and Jean Claude Van Damme will be appearing. Contracts have reportedly been sent to several top wrestling stars but no word yet on who will be wrestling besides Goldberg, if Goldberg and UAPWM can agree on a deal.
The plan is to release a pay-per-view and DVD of the show, as well as a feature film, according to the UAPWM press release.
