— As reported earlier, Super Crazy quit World Wrestling Entertainment this past Tuesday at the SmackDown/ECW taping because he was frustrated with the way he was being used, or rather, not being used by the company.

— Former WWF wrestler Damian Demento returns to the ring this Saturday for WWE Hall of Famer Johnny Rodz’s World of Unpredictable Wrestling promotion at Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn, New York. Demento posted a video on YouTube regarding his wrestling comeback, which you can see at the following link. However, he will only wrestle if he is allowed to use the Damian Demento name. Rodz isn’t too keen on the idea because WWE owns the name and he doesn’t want to cause trouble with them. “After Rodz saw me training at Gleasons Gym he asked me to make my comeback match with his organization. I said as long as I use the Damian Demento name. In spite of Rodz telling me I can’t use the Demento name because its owned by the WWE, I told Rodz that everybody knows me as Damian Demento, and if the WWE wanted me to go away they wouldnt be showing me on TV, and mocking me in their magazines,” Demento said in his YouTube video. “If Rodz decides to stop me from performing because hes afraid of Vince McMahon and his lawyers, then it proves that Rodz is not the man I new when he broke me in the business twenty years ago. Two things we will find out this Saturday: what kind of a man Rodz is, and, if my gut feeling is right, how the WWE will react to my using the Demento name.”
