IPW this Sat.

Apparently Colt Cabana had an incident where he hurt his foot and was telling a buddy about it and jokingly said something about his pinkie being amputated, and even told his buddy he was joking and not to mention it to anyone or anything, but his buddy did as somewhat of a practical joke, and for some time yesterday there was some confusion as to whether Cabana had lost his toe or not. To check out Colt Cabana, go to ColtCabana.com!

Mark Copani, the former Muhammad Hassan, is now a personal trainer in Southern California under his company name of Copani Fitness. After leaving wrestling, Copani pursued acting gigs in Hollywood.

WWE is currently in talks with MMA star Bob Sapp, as Paul Heyman has been pushing for WWE to sign him dating back to 2003 when Heyman pitched a "Sapp v. Lesnar" program. The only problem is that Sapp is making plenty with his MMA fights and he accepts movie roles, so this is just something to keep an eye on!

Ken Sham-most likely not signing with WWE

Apparently Samoa Joe blew up at TNA officials at the Impact tapings last week for the way that one of the security crew members handled him during the segment with Kurt Angle. Joe blew up at Vince russo, asking who the agent in charge of that segment was, then being told it was Simon Diamond.

Chris Jericho's manager is the one that worked out the deal to get Fozzy's video on TNA. Jericho is still opposed to appearing live for TNA, as he still plans on returning to WWE at some point.
