The Wrestleline Report-Tuesday

I'd like to personally send my thoughts and prayers out to all the friends and families of those affected by the Virginia Tech shooting yesterday. It's truly sad that something like this has happened, and I don't believe it will ever be forgotten.

As a result of the Lockdown PPV, Sting will face Christian Cage for the NWA World Heavyweight title at TNA's 5/13 Sacrifice PPV.

There are writers in WWE that like Ring of Honor star Colt Cabana, which should improve his chances of making it to the main roster. Cabana recently signed a developmental deal, and will be reporting to Ohio Valley Wrestling.

From the where are they now section, former Tough Enough contestant and Smackdown diva Linda Miles is now a study hall advisor at Colerian High School in her hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. Miles appeared on WWE television as Shaniqua with the Basham brothers.

WWE recently announced the releases of Jon Bolen and James Rogers from the developmental program. Rogers is a Canadian actor that never actually wrestled in Deep South or Ohio Valley Wrestling.

Publishers Weekly lists Mick Foley's "Hardcore Diaries" at #13 on the list of best selling non-fiction books.

Apparently the people that were filmed doing promos for Stone Cold's premiere of his movie "The Condemned" were told what to say, as none of them had seen the movie yet.

Ken Kennedy was recently interviewed and asked why it was that he announced himself whenever he came out. He said that when he came to OVW, it was known that he used to announce basketball games, so Paul Heyman told him to go out and introduce himself, and he states that simply by saying his name twice he got over really well with the crowd, so he's been doing that ever since.

I noticed something kinda interesting, amidst all the controversy with Hulk Hogan, WWE and the whole Memphis show coming up, there's a webisode of WWE Uncut on WWE.com where Hulk Hogan revisits his Summerslam match against Randy Orton.

Former WWE star "The Shooter" Brent Albright steps into The Hotseat over on opt. 3 of The Indy Wrestleline w/ your host, Greg Carey!
