      > CHRIS CANDIDO PASSES AWAY
      - The wrestling world was shocked yesterday as news came in that former
      WWE, WCW and ECW Superstar Chris Candido passed away at the age of 33.
      Candido was currently performing for TNA Wrestling, and this past Sunday
      was part of their Lockdown pay-per-view where he broke his leg during
      his match. Candido underwent surgery the next day and received a metal
      plate and screws to repair his broken tibia, broken fibula and
      dislocated ankle. On Tuesday he was back to Universal Studios to
      participate in the TNA tapings which will air tomorrow on Fox Sports
      Net. His brother said that the cause of death seems to be due to
      bleeding from a blood clot from his surgery. During his time with WWE,
      Candido wrestled as 'Skip' of the Bodydonnas along with Dr Tom Pritchard
      and their popular manager and his then-girlfriend Sunny. WWE.COM and
      TNAWrestling.com posted their condolences to his family and friends.

      > SMACKDOWN! RATINGS
      - Smackdown! did a 3.2 in the overnight ratings. Final number is not out
      yet at time of this writing. (Ratings compiled by Nielsen Media Research
      and put online by PWInsider.com)

      > HULK HOGAN IS CALLING!
      - What are the chances that the phone rings, you pick up the phone and
      it's Hulk Hogan on the other end? Well, right now the chances are pretty
      high if you're a wrestling fan and ordered WWE pay-per-views before! WWE
      with the help of their satellite and cable providers WWE are doing
      random calls to fans who previously purchased their PPVs with a
      pre-recorded message from Hulk Hogan telling them to order Backlash this
      coming Sunday. W-O Newsletter reader Jarrod Griswold was one of those
      fans who got the call and said that the message is simply the Hulkster
      saying he's teaming up with Shawn Michaels for one more match and to
      order the PPV. Nice sales pitch!

      > GETTING READY FOR RAW
      - The Tampa Bay Online published an article yesterday about Jim Ross and
      his schedule leading up to RAW on Monday nights. The story was written
      the week before WrestleMania, but only made its way through just
      yesterday. It's a pretty interesting look at how JR prepares for a RAW
      broadcast, his meetings on that day with McMahon etc. Something
      interesting in the article is that JR said that he's trying to get a
      change of jobs so he can work from home to be more closer to his kids.

      > STOCKS
      - As time of this writing, stocks are trading at 10.60, a 1.12% decrease
      over yesterday's closing. The day's range so far has been 10.45 - 10.70.
      Speaking of stocks, the Motley Fool site has a good article how the
      recent news about WrestleMania buys didn't help shoot up the price of
      the stock. You can read at
