      > PLAYBOY BUDDY ROSE PASSES AWAY
      - Paul Perschmann, who wrestling fans may remember by his in-ring name of
      'Playboy' Buddy Rose, passed away yesterday in his home in Portland, OR. His
      body was discovered by his wife and no cause of death has been released. He
      was, although not confirmed, 56 years old. Rose wrestled mainly for Pacific
      Northwest Wrestling but also had stints in the AWA and the WWF where he was
      on the first match of the first WrestleMania wrestling under a mask as the
      Executioner. He wrestled his last match in 2005 at the Wrestle Reunion show
      in Tampa, FL. Over the years he had several memorable feuds with Rowdy Roddy
      Piper, Jimmy Snuka and even Bob Backlund. He captured several titles during
      his wrestling career including the NWA Pacific Northwest heavyweight title
      eight different times and several tag team title stints with different
      partners with NWA promotions.

      > RAW DROPS IN RATINGS
      - Monday Night RAW did a 3.4 rating off hours 3.46 and 3.37. That is down
      from last week's 3.7 and certainly not good news coming off a pay-per-view,
      especially when the number dropped as the show progressed. Meanwhile
      Smackdown last week did a 1.6 rating which obviously is not a number to brag
      about. (Ratings compiled by Nielsen Media Research and put online by
      PWInsider.com)

      > WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE #1 CONTENDER MATCH CHANGED
      - WWE changed plans once again for the number one contender for the World
      title as the six way match between Chris Jericho, Great Khali, Kane, Rey
      Mysterio, Jeff Hardy and John Morrison at the Smackdown television tapings
      was changed to a fatal four way. The Great Khali and John Morrison drew the
      short end of the stick and were taken out of the main event leaving four
      former WWE and World champions to battle it out and face Edge at the
      Judgment Day pay-per-view.

      > LINDA BOLLEA ASKS FOR MORE MONEY TO MOVE TO CALIFORNIA
      - When Hulk Hogan has his mouth running wild, his estranged wife Linda is
      ready to strike like a king - or queen? - cobra. Hogan's remarks regarding
      OJ Simpson saying he understands how he felt and that he could've taken the
      easy way out and got rid of Linda and her 20 year old boyfriend Charlie
      might cost him some extra thousands of dollars. Linda's legal team filed
      documents in court saying that Linda now needs an additional $8,200 so she
      can move away from Florida and an extra $24,000 for rent and security
      deposits so she can grab her bags and move to California. Linda is said to
      be "in imminent danger" after Hogan's OJ words and fears of becoming a
      victim. A clause was also put in the papers that if the WWE Hall of Famer
      doesn't pay the requested sum she will file a domestic violence injunction
      against him which will prevent the Hulkster from talking trash against his
      wife in public to the media. After making the OJ remarks, Hogan's camp
      quickly issued a statement that his comments in the Rolling Stone magazine
      were taken out of context.
