//->> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITOR
Colin Vassallo -[editor@...]-
So it's been a week since we launched the Android app on the Android Market.
If you bought it we would appreciate some feedback on how you like it (or
how you don't) etc.
For our BlackBerry users, the new version will be compatible with the Storm
phones (and all BB phones actually) and we're working on the video support
as there are limitations on it. The same individual who did the Android app
is doing our revised BB app. Actually, it's a brand new one. The upgrade
will be free of course to those who purchased it already.
//->> NEWS FROM THE WRESTLING-ONLINE NEWSWIRE
Web version at -[http://www.wrestling-online.com/news%5d-
> SHAWN MICHAELS TO LAUNCH OFFICIAL WEBSITE- The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels taped a video clip announcing his
upcoming online presence at theshawnmichaels.com which will be his first and
only official page on the Internet. Several websites including Facebook
pages were opened in the past claiming to be associated with HBK and last
week even WWE wrote on their website that the Facebook page circulating
claiming to be of him and his wife Rebecca is not associated with him.
Michaels said there are two reasons that he's opening a website - to keep in
touch with his fans and to eliminate any doubts of the other fake websites
including MySpace, Facebook and Twitter accounts. He also added that all the
blogs and tweets and Facebook posts will be done by himself and not anyone
else. "This is authentic, this is real, this is me," he said. He then closed
off the video saying, "I am Shawn Michaels and I approve this ad!" Funny.

> TWITTER ACCOUNT FOR SHAWN MICHAELS CONFIRMED BY WWE- WWE.COM confirmed the new - and official - Shawn Michaels Twitter account
this morning and added him to the "Alumni" Twitter list on their website.
WWE keeps a list of official accounts for their Superstars and Divas to
avoid any fans following fake accounts. Shawn's new Twitter account is
@ShawnMichaels_ and yes that includes the underscore at the end of the name.
He has gathered over 14,000 followers since the announcement.
> HOGAN DEATH RUMOR CLEARED BY TNA'S DIXIE CARTER- Out of nowhere rumors popped up yesterday that Hulk Hogan has passed away
resulting in several fans posting messages on social networking websites.
TNA President Dixie Carter cleared the rumors a couple of hours ago by
posting a tweet on her Twitter account. "HULK HOGAN IS ALIVE AND WELL," she
wrote. "He did not drown. Not sure how these rumors get started. Awful."
Last year Hogan was also the subject of another death rumor.
> NAMES CONFIRMED FOR HARDCORE JUSTICE PAY-PER-VIEW- After iMPACT! ended yesterday, TNA announced the confirmed names so far
that will be taking part in the upcoming HardCORE Justice pay-per-view next
week. Johnny Swinger, Axl Rotten and Balls Mahoney are three that are coming
in specifically for this show while Al Snow, Simon Diamond, Team 3D, Rhino,
Stevie Richards, Mick Foley, Raven, Tommy Dreamer and Rob Van Dam who
already work for TNA will also be on the show. Jerry Lynn confirmed on his
website that he will be facing RVD for the main event although TNA has not
confirmed his participation yet. Sabu and The Sandman are also expected to
be part of the show.
> WWE SUPERSTARS, CREW OFF TO AUSTRALIA- WWE Superstars and crew are on the way to the other side of the world to
start a six day tour in Australia and New Zealand. This is a Smackdown tour
although there will be some RAW Superstars involved as well. The tour starts
tomorrow with a show in Sydney then on Sunday in Melbourne, Monday in
Brisbane, Tuesday to Adelaide, Wednesday in Perth and finally Thursday in
Auckland. Everyone will be back stateside for the weekend to get ready for
the next set of RAW and Smackdown tapings. This coming Monday's RAW was
taped this week so it will not be airing live.
