      to WrestleMania with the winner receiving a title shot for either the WWE or
      Heavyweight title.


      > RAW AND SMACKDOWN RATINGS
      - RAW on Monday night did a 3.2 rating off hours 3.33 and 3.07 with an
      average of 4,483,000 viewers. That is the same number from last week however
      with a quarter of a million viewers less. The drop of viewers in the second
      hour from the first was also considerably larger than last week. Smackdown
      this week drew a 2.12 rating with an average of 3,052,000 viewers for the
      live edition hosted by Mick Foley. That is up from last week's 1.87 rating
      and just over 150,000 viewers more in total. (Ratings compiled by Nielsen
      Media Research and put online by PWInsider.com)


      > NICKELBACK AND MARY J. BLIGE AT TRIBUTES SHOW
      - In a press release issued jointly by NBC and WWE it was announced that
      artists Mary J. Blige and Nickelback along with comedian George Wallace will
      be appearing at the upcoming WWE Tribute to the Troops show which will be
      held in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Former RAW guest host, Extra's Maria
      Menounos, will be participating in a Divas match while Miss USA Alyssa
      Campanella will make a special appearance as well. Several celebrities
      including Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Jackman, The Muppets, Robin Williams,
      Bradley Cooper, Nicole Kidman and others taped greetings for the troops that
      will be played throughout the show. The show will be airing on December 17
      at 9PM EST on NBC.


      > MCMAHON, KINGSTON, BELLA TWINS TO GO TO AFGHANISTAN
      - For the second year in a row, the Tributes show will not be going to a
      warzone but rather staying Stateside with tapings held at the Crown Coliseum
      in Fayetteville, 11 miles away from Fort Bragg, North Carolina. However a
      small group of WWE staffers - including WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon,
      Kofi Kingston, Brie and Nikki Bella - will be traveling to Afghanistan to
      visit the troops. Footage from their short trip will be shown during the
      multiple showings of the Tributes show on NBC and USA Network. Last year WWE
      taped the annual Tributes show in Fort Hood, Texas, while the previous seven
      years they were held in Iraq and Afghanistan.


      > NICK BOLLEA GETTING SUED FOR 2009 CRASH
      - Nick Bollea, the son of TNA's Hulk Hogan, is facing legal action two years
      after he crashed into another car in Los Angeles. The "victim" of the crash,
      Marcela Posada, claims that she suffered significant injuries and while at
      the time of the accident she didn't mention anything apart from car issues,
      she is now suing Nick for $25,000. The accident happened in 2009 on a
      freeway in LA when Nick was driving back home following a charity event.
      TMZ.COM attempted to reach out to Posada and her attorney but none of them
      returned the calls. Looks like someone is looking to make a quick buck!


      > AUSTIN FILMING NEW MOVIE WITH STEVEN SEAGAL
      - WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin is currently in Vancouver
      filming his new movie with the one and only Steven Seagal. The movie, titled
      Maximum Conviction, is about two former black ops who are assigned to
      decommission an old prison and are given the task to oversee the arrival of
      two mysterious female prisoners. An elite force of mercenaries assault the
      prison in search of the two new prisoners and as the true identities of the
      women are revealed, the duo realizes they are caught in the middle of
      something far bigger than imagined. You can see seven photos of Austin on
      the set at http://w-o.it/s2aquj
