- WWE brass had planned for developmental wrestler Dean Ambrose to be a member of the main roster by now as he is listed as a Superstar in the newly released WWE Souvenir Program sold exclusively at live events. He is pictured appearing menacingly in traditional wrestling trunks and billed at 6’4″, 250 pounds and hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio. He has competed in numerous non-televised matches for WWE since late last year, but not since June 16.
- Though Chris Jericho will never say anything publicly about his comings and goings with WWE, with him not advertised for televised events following SummerSlam on August 19, many employees believe he’ll be leaving the company shortly, at least temporarily.
- Former WCW announcer “Stagger” Lee Marshall is organizing a reunion of broadcasters at KRIZ in Phoenix, Arizona in February.
- Celebrating birthdays Friday are Greg Gagne (64) and Manny Fernandez (58).
