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

      Hello hello. After 22 hours of travel I am finally back home, away from
      the scorching dry heat of Vegas and back to the very humid heat in Malta.
      You can't win this one! I hate Summer.

      Newsletter should resume regular service now with the usual delivery time
      rather than the wicked times of the past three weeks.

      //->> NEWS FROM THE WRESTLING-ONLINE NEWSWIRE
      Web version at http://www.wrestling-online.com/


      > THE ORIGINAL DOINK THE CLOWN PASSES AWAY
      - Matt Osborne, the man who was the original Doink the clown in WWE,
      passed away yesterday. He was found dead by his girlfriend in their Texas
      residence. He was 55 years old. Osbourne started with WWE in 1992,
      appearing ringside among fans pulling tricks and distracting wrestlers
      during live shows. He portrayed the character of Doink for a year and was
      then replaced by Ray Apollo after he started abusing drugs again. He
      reprised the role of Doink at the RAW 15th Anniversary show, participating
      in the Legends battle royal. Osborne wrestled in WCW as Big Josh and also
      briefly in ECW. No cause of death has been reported. WWE has released a
      short statement on their website saying, ³WWE is saddened by the news of
      Osborne¹s passing. Our deepest condolences go out to Osborne¹s family,
      friends and fans.²


      > MITB PARTICIPANTS FOR WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE REVEALED
      - The Money In The Bank match participants for the World Heavyweight title
      were announced during last night¹s Smackdown television show. The seven
      Superstars who will battle for the briefcase are Cody Rhodes, Jack
      Swagger, Fandango, Wade Barrett, Damien Sandow, Antonio Cesaro, and U.S.
      champion Dean Ambrose. Unlike the WWE title MITB match where all seven are
      former champions, only one in this match ­ Jack Swagger ­ is a former
      World Heavyweight champion and he got the victory by cashing in his own
      MITB briefcase several years ago.


      > TNA TAPING IMPACT IN VEGAS TONIGHT
      - TNA is taping their next two IMPACT shows tonight in Las Vegas, Nevada,
      instead of next week due to the 4th of July holiday. The tapings are being
      held at the Orleans Arena inside the Orleans Hotel & Casino which is
      located on West Tropicana Avenue. The same arena this year is the host of
      the Joe Weider's Mr. Olympis competition in September. As with other
      arenas, TNA will be using around two thirds of the property with tickets
      going for $15, $30, $45, $75, and $150.


      > SUICIDE UNMASKED
      - During IMPACT this week, the man behind the Suicide mask was revealed to
      be former TNA champion Austin Aries after a five minute segment involving
      Hulk Hogan and Bully Ray. The character was originally part of the TNA
      video game but then transitioned to a "real-life" character on TNA's shows
      and portrayed by Kazarian, Christopher Daniels, Kiyoshi, and lately T.J.
      Perkins. Aries wrestled under the Suicide mask for the first time this
      week, winning the X Division title in a match against Chris Sabin and
      Kenny King. Hogan came out with Perkins - who was donning the Suicide mask
      since his return this year - and requested for the "impostor" Suicide to
      unmask. Aries will now take on Bully Ray at the Destination X pay-per-view
      for the TNA title.


      > DDP CONFIDENT IN ROBERTS' PROGRESS DESPITE DRINKING
      - A very emotional Jake "The Snake" Roberts called his progress at the
      Accountability Crib with DDP a "rest of my life project" despite saying it
      is not easy for him to be there battling drug and alcohol addiction. Last
      week it was revealed that Roberts fell off the wagon once again and was
      caught drinking, eventually admitting to his mistake to DDP's friends. DDP
      said this is not rehab, but a support group and it doesn't matter how many
      times you fall, but how many times you get back up. DDP said Jake is at
      "236 days and 4," since moving to the house and hasn't used cocaine or
      crack for over eight months, calling it "f**king huge." In the video,
      Roberts once again set his expectation to make it to the Royal Rumble in
      one of these years, even if it means he will be the first 100 year old to
      walk down that aisle. "I'm not giving up. I'm going to beat this, and I
      f**king mean it this time," Roberts said. You can see the latest video at
