ECW on Sci Fi Tuesday night did a 1.5 cable rating-up from last week's 1.4

Wrestling Society X did a ....0.5 cable rating. Ouch.

SHIMMER Wrestling has sent out a press release saying that former WWE Diva Jazz has joined the all-women's wrestling promotion. Jazz will be making her SHIMMER debut at the April 7th taping and the footage will be subsequently released on DVD as a part of their ongoing SHIMMER DVD series.

More on the interview with Sean Waltman on Bubba the Love Sponge radio show-Waltman admitted to smoking marijuana and that he and Joanie Laurer used to do crystal meth and speed. He also said that everytime he tries to get ahold of Scott Hall he's changed his number and that he's worried about him

In some notes:

Viscera has an interview with VH1 Celebreality show star Tiffany "New York" Pollard

Greg "The Hammer" Valentine is featured in the "Where are They Now?" segment. He beat out Paul Bearer in a recent poll.

JBL & Michael Cole's audio program "Around the Ring" will be returning this week. JBL is supposed to make some controversial comments in the "Where are They Now?" segment of the site, as well as comment on Dusty Rhodes being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The Four Horsemen DVD set will be released Apr. 10. The three disc set features interviews from many people who were a part of the group-even Sid Vicious and Lex Luger are rumored to have been interviewed.

WWE has an additional disc to the 2005 release "Mick Foley's Greatest Hits & Misses" dvd set. The "Special Hardcore" edition features more recent matches as well as commentary from Mick and Joey Styles. This will be released on March 6.
