      > WWE SUFFERS 18% DROP IN REVENUES
      - Earlier today WWE announced their fourth quarter profit ending April
      30th. The company posted an 18% drop profit in the quarter, largely
      thanks to less revenue from televised and non televised events during
      the period. Quarterly income was $16.1 million, down from $19.7 million
      the year before. Revenue totaled $118.3 million, a decline of 7% from
      $126.7 million a year earlier, with revenue from live and televised
      events down 4% to $97.5 million. The full report can be accessed at
      http://www.wrestling-online.com/news/article_4254.shtml

      > YOU'RE FIRED!
      - It's that time of the year again. Following several Superstars being
      released after WrestleMania 21, another wave of releases is on the
      horizon. Reports indicate that last week around eight office workers
      were let go and Superstars in the locker room have been alerted that
      cuts will be made in the next few weeks. These are cost cutting measures
      which are needed especially since come October television ad revenues
      will all be going to USA Network after they take over WWE programming
      under a new multi year deal.

      > RATINGS
      - As mentioned yesterday, RAW did a 4.4 rating for Monday's show with a
      6.9 share off hours 4.2 and 4.6. That was the best number in a year for
      the company. In weekend ratings, Velocity did a 0.7 with a 1.5 share,
      Experience a 0.4 with a 1.5 share and Heat a 0.7 with a 1.4 share.
      (Ratings compiled by Nielsen Media Research and put online by
      PWInsider.com)

      > WWE SENDS PRESS RELEASE OVER RAW RATING
      - After receiving the best rating of the year so far for Monday Night
      RAW, WWE sent a press release yesterday pimping the 4.4 rating which
      translates to around 5.9 million viewers. Monday night's rating was the
      highest since RAW earned a 4.5 rating on March 22nd 2004. The overall
      household delivery was the largest since more than 4 million homes tuned
      in to RAW on April 22nd 2002.

      > WWE ON MAXIM MAGAZINE
      - In the July issue of MAXIM magazine, a picture of Hulk Hogan and
      Ultimate Warrior from their WrestleMania VI match made the 'Found Porn'
      section, which is a funny part of the mag showcasing pictures of
      products or headlines from newspapers that can be considered 'porn' as
      well. The picture has Hogan and Warrior in a test of strength and
      Warrior on his knees right in front of Hogan. The caption reads,
      "Several of the Hulkamaniacs in the audience didn't know what to make of
      the funny feeling in their pants." The guy who submitted the picture won
      himself $150.

      > SMACKDOWN! PREVIEW
      - The following matches have been taped for tonight's Smackdown! on UPN.
      Paul London vs Chavo Guerrero; Michelle McCool vs Melina; Chris Benoit
      vs Booker T vs Undertaker vs JBL vs Mohammed Hassan vs lottery draft
      pick for the new Smackdown! champion. Plus another draft pick will be
      announced.
