The Wrestleline Report-Friday

RIP former ECW Tag Champ John Kronus, who was found dead in his girlfriend's apartment this week.

ECW Champ Johnny "Nitro" Morrison will be at the OVW Six Flags show tonight in Louisville

The OVW Six Flags show has changed for 8/10 from Matt and Jeff Hardy appearing to Mark Henry and Shelton Benjamin taking their places.

Ricky Morton-who was just on The Indy Wrestleline about a month or so ago-has pulled out of this weekend's UWF shows due to a financial dispute. Apparently he asked for more money when he learned what Robert Gibson would be getting paid. Morton has instead taken a booking for IWA Mid South in Joliet, IL.

There are rumors of a dvd being made about Undertaker's Wrestlemania winning streak, entitled "Undertaker 15-0!".

A reminder that ROH's debut ppv begins airing on indemand tonight at 8 pm, and there should be numerous replays throughout the next month or so.
