> RAW TO AIR TONIGHT IN UK AND CANADA
- While viewers in the US will have to wait till Thursday to see RAW thanks
to the dog show on USA Network, fans in Canada and the United Kingdom will
still get to see the show tonight. In the United Kingdom, the show will air
at 4AM local time rather than the usual live slot of 2AM. WWE programming,
believe it or not, will start at 10PM with Bottom Line, Afterburn at 11, ECW
at Midnight, Heat at 1AM, another showing of Bottom Line and Afterburn at 2
and 3 and then RAW starting at 4. That's eight hours of total programming in
a row on Sky Sports 3. Woah! In Canada RAW still airs in its usual timeslot.

> FOUR WAY LADDER MATCH AT PPV SCRAPPED
- The four way ladder match between London/Kendrick, Hardy Boyz, MNM and
Regal/Taylor which was planned for the 'No Way Out' pay-per-view has been
scrapped in favor of the current champs taking on Deuce & Domino for the tag
team gold. Last week WWE announced that the ladder rematch from the awesome
'Armageddon' pay-per-view would be taking place at the upcoming Smackdown!
PPV but plans have changed, most probably holding off on such a match for

- WWE Diva Ashley Massaro will be revealing her Playboy cover this week on
Friday's Smackdown! on the CW Network. All the WWE Divas who appeared on
Playboy had their cover unveiled on either RAW or Smackdown! and the most

//->> THE CHAIR SHOT
By Kevin I. Dodge -[kidodge@...
* NOTE: This article was written before TNA's PPV *
Well let's just get right to it. Knowing the Wrestlemania main events two
months ahead of time is kind of nice. Build a little story, let the crowd
join in and enjoy it. It's pretty ballsy for Vince to have two main events
with a Face vs. a Face. Not a single "Bad Guy" in the whole bunch. Even
though it would be a perfect time to turn Cena into a heel. Turn him into a
dirty S.O.B. and that's perfect for a match with "Mr. Religion" Shawn
Then you have the Animal vs. the Phenom. Title against Streak. You don't
need to have a heel in that one. Just the Wrestlemania winning streak of the
Undertaker is story enough. I'm really looking forward to both matches.
Steve Austin is supposed to be involved and should be appearing on Raw here
soon. My guess is they will use him in some sort of guess referee role.
It's also official that Hulk Hogan will NOT be part of the show. Thank God.
Hell, he could bill himself as half machine. He has more replacement parts
in him then my 67' Volkswagon Bug. He has finally reached the point in his
wrestling carreer where he just needs to be present and stay out of the
ring. There is also rumor of Mick Foley being there. I'm curious to see how
Vince is going to end up using his little feud with Donald Trump. So far
Wrestlemania sounds like it's going to be very interesting.
So how many of you have caught Wrestling Society X on MTV? I like it alot.
Even the ring anouncer is more exciting then some of the wrestling you see
out there. But the only real story about WSX is Teddy Hart. The nephew of
Brett, and Owen. Apparently Vince it trying to recruit him. Nattie Neidhart,
the daughter of Jim Neidhart, and Harry Smith, the son of Davey Boy Smith,
are already working for Vince. They are down in OVW right now. If Vince can
get Teddy he can reform a new Hart Foundation. The original Hart foundation
was so dominant for so many years. I think that would be a great idea and
tribute. I'm also am hoping that Vince will feel a little competition with
ECW. Maybe it will go back to being a little more extreme just to keep up
with WSX. Then again that's probably just wishful thinking on my part.
TNA has it's PPV on Sunday. It doesn't sound too bad. I'm not a huge fan of
Sting, but I give him all the credit in the world to come back into
wrestling, especially at his age, and doing alot more then just going
through the motions of wrestling. No, he's in matches with thumbtacks,
barbwire, and all kinds of Harcore rules. It's nice to see someone come back
after a long carreer and not just live on their name. He is almost making a
whole new name for himself. It's nice to see that AJ Styles is being
accepted as an equal in the Heavyweight division. He is the first one to
kind of officially move up from the X-division.
And finally, Angle knows who Christian's advisor is. "Big Poppa Pump" Scott
Steiner. But I just don't see the history between them that Christian kept
hinting to. But anyway, it should make for an interesting feud. It also
gives Angle an excuse when he doesn't win the title belt. He will win it
eventually but I think they want to keep the belt around Christian waist for
a little longer. They really need to find something to do with Robert Roode.
I really do believe he is an untapped talent.
Sorry this edition is so short, I guess there really isn't much going on in
the moment in wrestling to talk about. Please feel free to send any comments
