The Wrestleline Report-Thursday

HBO Real Sports with Bryan Gumbel is doing an update to their "Deaths of Wrestlers" piece next month.

The NWA weekly TV show on the Dish Network will begin on the "Coulors" channel. Nothing has been confirmed, but the likely time slot will be Wednesday nights at 9PM.

There is talk of Luna Vachon and Gangrel moving full-time to the U.K. later this year. Gangrel feels he can make a full-time income living in Europe.

WWE is not only opposing the TNA trademark of "VKM", but "Voodoo Kin Mafia", as well as ESPN's trademark of "Judgement Day" for a new college football program. Power crazy much?

Interesting stats from the latest edition of WWE Magazine:

Oldest Person to win the WWE Title:Vince McMahon (54 Years, 21 Days Old)
Youngest Winner of the WWE Title:Brock Lesnar (25 Years, 44 Days) -This is accurate, because Lesnar won the WWE Championship-the original WWE Title-Orton won the World Heavyweight Championship-aka the old RAW Championship, that is now on Smackdown. Orton is still the youngest World Champ in WWE history, but Lesnar is the youngest WWE Champ.
Most Wins of the Royal Rumble:Stone Cold (3)
Most Consecutive Rumble Wins:Hulk Hogan (2), Shawn Michaels (2), & Stone Cold (2)
Most Rumble Wins (From the #30 Entrance): The Undertaker (1)
