      > AWESOME KONG, NASH ALSO PULLED FROM PPV
      - Yesterday's TNA pay-per-view had some changes to its card which
      understandably left some fans unhappy. Christy Hemme was pulled from the
      show after suffering a neck injury while training for her match against
      Awesome Kong. Her injury will require surgery according to the TNA website.
      Awesome Kong was also pulled from the match after having back problems,
      leaving the card with no Knockouts title defense and the match being
      replaced with a number one contenders match. Kevin Nash was hospitalized
      yesterday suffering from a staph infection in his elbow. He was supposed to
      be a part of the main event but was replaced by Kip James. Nash will be
      undergoing surgery today

      > ROURKE WINS GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD FOR ROLE IN 'THE WRESTLER'
      - Mickey Rourke won a Golden Globe award for his role as Randy 'The Ram'
      Robinson in the critically acclaimed movie 'The Wrestler'. The movie also
      won an award for the best song which is performed by Bruce Springsteen and
      is titled as the name of the movie. Rourke is expected to be nominated for
      an Academy Award as well. During his acceptance speech, Rourke thanked
      director Darren Aronofsky for bringing the best out of him and called him
      "one tough son of a bitch," to which Aronofsky jokingly gave him the middle
      finger in full camera view! Rourke also dropped a couple of words which NBC
      censors surely didn't like! You can see the funny exchange at
