The Wrestleline Report-Wednesday

Happy Fourth of July to everyone!! I hope everybody has a safe and happy holiday!

During ECW last night, if you noticed, during the Vengance match between Punk and Nitro, there was a point where there were some ECW, ECW chants...those were originally "we want Benoit" chants that were edited.

Already confirmed for the Great American Bash ppv is Johnny Nitro v. CM Punk for the ECW Title, and John Cena v. Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title.

Last Friday's Smackdown scored a 2.4 rating with a 4.9 share.

John Laurinaitis doesn't want any non-contracted wrestlers training or working for WWE's new developmental group, Florida Championship Wrestling.

John Cena has passed JBL in having the longest title reign this decade. JBL held the world title for 280 days.

Apparently Triple H is pushing for Randy Orton to win the WWE Title from John Cena. The internal feeling is that Cena doesn't need the strap to be over, and that there may be more money in Cena chasing Orton for the title. There may be a Triple H v. Orton match at either Survivor Series or Wrestlemania.

For those wanting more Benoit tragedy news, I'm sorry, I know it's biased of me, but I am just so damn tired of hearing and reading about it. It was sickening what happened, in more ways than one, and it's really hard to move on and stop thinking about it when it's all that you see. It still makes me sick to my stomach to think about what happened.
