      //->> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITOR
      Colin Vassallo -[editor@...]-

      UFC's announcement of moving to FOX is a pretty big deal in the TV industry.
      I saw the press conference earlier today and I think it would be a pretty
      exciting time right now to be working for the company. UFC went from almost
      bankrupt to ending up on one of the largest networks in the world with a
      seven year deal worth millions and millions and millions (multiply that by A
      LOT) of dollars a year. Congrats to UFC! Keep it coming!

      //->> NEWS FROM THE WRESTLING-ONLINE NEWSWIRE
      Web version at -[http://www.wrestling-online.com/news%5d-


      > RAW RATING
      - Monday Night RAW with the fallout from SummerSlam did a 3.29 rating off
      hours 3.4 and 3.18 with an average of 5,055,000 viewers. The overall rating
      is up from last week's 3.1 with around half a million more viewers in total
      however the second hour suffered a decent drop with 387,000 viewers turning
      away as the show progressed. Ouch! (Ratings compiled by Nielsen Media
      Research and put online by PWInsider.com)


      > THE MOUSE THAT APPEARED ON RAW!
      - RAW on Monday night featured a special appearance by a mouse following
      John Cena's run-in after the Del Rio attack on Rey Mysterio at the end of
      the show. The mouse ran on the side of the ramp coming from the direction of
      the ring and looked pretty good in high definition as Del Rio and Rodriguez
      continued their part with Cena. TMZ.COM reported the story on their website
      yesterday and Ernie Hahn, the General Manager of the Valley View Casino
      Center - the site of RAW on Monday - made it clear that the arena doesn't
      have a rodent infestation. Hahn thinks that they were victims of a prank as
      the mouse looked like one of those friendly pet mice you can buy from a
      store instead of the usual gray mice which are not so friendly. Hahn added
      that the arena has a full-time pest control service so the mouse isn't
      scheduled to live for a long time.


      > THQ RELEASES NEW FIVE MINUTE TRAILER OF WWE '12
      - THQ has released its new WWE '12 trailer which showcases the brand new
      Predator Technology that has been implemented in the game. It promises to
      have the smoothest and most competitive game play experience the franchise
      has ever seen and THQ went to the extra mile to replicate the television
      experience by joining the WWE TV production team to work on camera angles so
      the game looks exactly like you're watching a WWE television show. A new
      rendering feature gives sharper looks and better texture details to the
      characters in the game while a new depth-of-field and ring physics add to
      the reality. You can check out the five minute presentation at
      http://w-o.it/rpP8H0.


      > BROCK LESNAR SAYS HE'S BACK
      - Brock Lesnar went to the prairies of North Dakota for a prairie dog hunt
      south of Bismarck, to film some promotional stuff for one of his biggest
      sponsors, Fusion Ammunition. The former UFC and WWE champion is a spokesman
      for the company and during a video that was shot he declared that he's back
      and ready to go back to the Octagon. Lesnar had a second bout with
      diverticulitis and had to undergo surgery in May. His last fight in the
      Octagon was back in October of last year when he lost the UFC Heavyweight
      title to Cain Velasquez in the first round. "I feel like a new man, healthy,
      strong, I feel like I used to feel," Lesnar said. "Right now, one day at a
      time for me. My future, I believe there's still a bright future in the UFC
      for me. When asked when the former champ would be storming the UFC again,
      Lesnar said that it will be sooner than later. You can see the video for
      Fusion Ammo at http://w-o.it/oQC0Mo.


      > LINDA SAYS HULK HAD AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP...WITH BRUTUS BEEFCAKE
      - Linda Hogan and her ex-husband Hulk Hogan restarted another war of words
      this week after Linda made one of the most absurd allegation so far.
      Speaking during an interview during an online radio show to promote her new
      book, the host asked if she believes that Hogan and one of his best friends,
      Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, ever had an intimate relationship. Linda said
      she better think about how to answer the question without getting slapped
      with a lawsuit but then spilled the beans saying that "a little bird" told
      her that indeed they did! The Hulkster was quick to reply on Twitter saying
      he feels sorry for Linda. "I can't believe how low a person will go, even to
      lie to hurt others just to stay in her perverted spotlight. She will have to
      answer to the power upstairs for her evil lifestyle, I can only pray for
      her, what a wasted life, God bless her."
