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

      Our hosting provider is still experiencing issues with their servers so
      W-O is up and down like a yoyo at the moment. It has been stable for the
      past few hours but I wouldn't be surprised if they take another hit. I
      would move servers in a heartbeat but the amount of work it will take to
      get everything up and running again is a bit of a mission impossible. When
      the site is down, mobile apps are also affected as it pulls data from the
      site so if your app doesn't pull new data that is why.

      > CARTER ADDRESSES ARIES/HEMME INCIDENT FROM IMPACT
      - TNA President Dixie Carter addressed the incident between Austin Aries
      and Christy Hemme from last week's IMPACT on her Twitter today saying that
      the issue was taken seriously and handled immediately. "TNA has ZERO
      tolerance for inappropriate behavior,² Carter wrote on Twitter. Last week,
      Hemme introduced Aries and his partner Bobby Roode as Christopher Daniels
      and Kazarian by mistake. Aries wasn't thrilled about the genuine mistake
      and cornered Hemme as she re-introduced the duo. While Hemme was cornered
      announcing the names again, Aries climbed on the second rope and had his
      crotch in her face. Hemme put her hands up to protect herself and said,
      "Okay okay I get it!" You can see the incident at http://w-o.it/10YfD7R

      > ZIGGLER OFF EXTREME RULES DUE TO INJURY
      - At Extreme Rules, the World Heavyweight title will not be defended since
      Dolph Ziggler is out with a concussion which wipes the triple threat
      ladder match off the card. The other two Superstars who were supposed to
      be involved in the same match - Jack Swagger and Alberto Del Rio - will
      however wrestle in an I quit match on the pay-per-view to determine the
      number one contender for the World Heavyweight title. Ziggler suffered a
      legit concussion last week during the Smackdown tapings when Jack Swagger
      kicked him in the head. He was later diagnosed with retrograde amnesia.


      > MIZ VS RHODES ADDED TO PPV PRE-SHOW
      - The Miz will get his second pay-per-view pre-show match in a row as the
      returning former WWE champion was announced to be taking on Cody Rhodes
      this Sunday before Extreme Rules goes on the air. Miz returned last night
      on RAW after he's been out for a month due to the filming schedule he had
      in Vancouver, Canada, for his upcoming made-for-TV Christmas movie which
      will air on ABC. The pre-show starts streaming live at 7:30PM ET on
      WWE.com, the WWE App, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Google+,
      Pinterest, Samsung SMART TVs and Xbox 360.


      > OFF AIR NOTES FROM RAW
      - W-O reader Jarrod Griswold attended RAW in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and sent in
      these following off air notes. After RAW went off the air, a dark match
      between John Cena, Randy Orton, and Alberto Del Rio taking on Ryback, Jack
      Swagger and the Big Show took place. The match lasted around 10 minutes
      and ended with Cena giving Big Show an Attitude Adjustment and the faces
      getting the win. After the match, Orton, Cena, and Del Rio went around the
      ring and greeted ringside fans. Orton stayed the longest even signing
      photos and taking pictures with the fans for over fifteen minutes.


      > WWE EXTENDS DVD DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH VIVENDI
      - WWE has announced that it has signed a multi-year extension for home
      video distribution with Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment. The new agreement
      will continue to give GVE distribution rights to release 12 WWE
      pay-per-view events each year, including WrestleMania and SummerSlam, as
      well as a robust catalog of collectible titles throughout the U.S. on
      physical and digital platforms. "WWE has been a true partner for us in
      every sense of the word," said Bill Sondheim, President of Gaiam Vivendi
      Entertainment. "Their dedicated fan base continues to power our promotions
      year after year, and this deal helps to energize our retail partners and
      further fuel our growth. We are excited to continue building exciting
      cross-promotional and merchandising opportunities with our physical and
      on-line retailers and key WWE partners."
