//->> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITOR
Colin Vassallo -[editor@...
Our w-o.it URL short service is currently down so if you try to click on any
links it will not work. We're looking into it...
Just FYI - "regular" service of newsletter and news on the site will resume
next Tuesday. The site is still being updated (although late) and the
newsletter is skipping a bit these past couple of weeks but considering
where I am, the time and other commitments I can't do much more.

> JEFF HARDY CHECKS HIMSELF INTO JAIL
- Former TNA and WWE champion Jeff Hardy checked himself into jail this week
according to TMZ to start a 10 day sentence stemming from his 2009 arrest.
After a deal with prosecutors was reached, Hardy agreed to plead guilty to
only two counts and get 10 days in jail, a $100,000 fine and 30 months
probation. His case dragged for a couple of years until it was finally
closed last month. You can check out his new mug shot at
> NXT MOVED TO WEDNESDAYS
- NXT Redemption is moving to Wednesdays on WWE.COM instead of the current
Tuesday time slot starting with this week. The show will be streamed at 4PM
EST. NXT moved to WWE.COM in October of last year in a deal that saw the
show off SyFy to bring in Smackdown to the cable network. NXT aired on SyFy
for seven months before getting canned, however it still airs on television
> GREAT KHALI ON HIS WAY OUT
- PWInsider.com is reporting that the reason WWE decided to play the injury
angle with The Great Khali last Friday on Smackdown is because he is not set
to sign a new WWE contract. The WWE.COM story which was posted online said
that Khali suffered a "fractured fibula" after Henry attacked the former
World champion, playing off the same storyline that they did with both Big
Show and Kane. Kane and Big Show have been out for a couple of months and on
RAW they announced that Show would be returning at the Smackdown this week.
> CLASSIC IC TITLE BACK ON TV
- The "classic" look of the Intercontinental title - made famous by the
likes of Macho Man Randy Savage, the Ultimate Warrior, Bret Hart, Mr
Perfect, Shawn Michaels, and others - made its triumphant return on WWE
television during Sunday's Hell In A Cell pay-per-view. In 1998 - twelve
years after making its debut - the Intercontinental title had a face lift
with The Rock carrying it for the first time and the old title was retired.
Originally designed by the folks at J-Mar, Cody Rhodes brought the title
back to life, and "bagging" the most recent one. How long will it stick?
Well that remains to be seen...
> WHITE EXPLAINS THE WHOLE KURT ANGLE SAGA
- Speaking to MMAWeekly.com, UFC President Dana White touched the subject of
Kurt Angle, who a couple of months back claimed that he was close to signing
a deal with UFC but it didn't work out because White wanted him in the cage
ASAP. White said that he liked Kurt and he thinks he's a good guy but after
Angle called him to fight in the UFC, White offered him a spot on The
Ultimate Fighter, the same season when Kimbo Slice was on. "He wanted to do
it, we worked out a deal, he didn't pass the medicals," said White. "What do
you mean he didn't pass the medicals," the reporter asked. "That's it.
That's all I'm saying," White said, who chose his words carefully before
speaking. White said he never offered him a PPV deal or a fight against
Slice as Angle said. "Kurt, you're a good guy, but that's not true, that
never happened" said White. You can see the interview with White at
