TNA's new entrance theme CD will be coming out in stores on Nov. 20, and will have more news on this in upcoming weeks.

Former WWE Diva Search contestant, Jessica Hatch, will be beginning to train with Booker T & his PWA wrestling promotion in Houston, TX as of today, Thursday October 18th. Hatch had made a stop here in Indiana at the WCWA Legends Reunion a couple weeks back-I believe she paid her way there, and was not an invited guest, but from what I hear it was a pleasant surprise to see her there!

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that the Learning Channel has commissioned a show called "Roughhouse," which is a reality show about wrestlers being trained in the PCW promotion based in Arlington, TX. They are filming training sessions over the next several weeks.

The 10/13 edition of AM Raw scored a 0.5 cable rating.

Ever wonder why they keep around Hacksaw Duggan? Writers Ed Koskay and Brian Gewirtz happen to find Duggan funny as a comedy figure, thus the reason he is kept on the roster.

Tuesday night's edition of ECW on Sci Fi scored a 1.2 cable rating.

Steve Austin's "The Condemned" slipped from #6 to #10 on the weekly DVD rental chart for the week of 10/8 to 10/14.

WWE diva Maria Kanellis was among the top searches, according to Yahoo, coming in at #18. The much maligned ECW was at #11.

Mike Johnson is reporting that Bobby Heenan recently underwent jaw surgery where surgeons would be replacing his jaw with bone removed from his hip.
