* According to an article on the Pioneer Press newspaper's website, TwinCities.com, former Gov. Jesse Ventura said he is continuing to lose weight as he's in training for the March 14 WrestleMania XX event at Madison Square Garden.
* WWE referee Tim White had to leave the ring midway through the Jericho vs Christian match at last night's RAW brand show last night in Birmingham, AL due to a recurring shoulder injury. White was replaced by ref Mike Chioda for the remainder of the match.
* To update on the previously mentioned Ric Flair neck situation, he is currently nursing a pinched nerve in his neck, thus forcing the WWE to be more careful in how they use him. While the company does NOT view the pinched nerve as career threatening, they do plan to cut back on how much they have him work in matches after his injury heals.
* In the new RAW Magazine now on news stands with Mick Foley on the cover, there is an article that talks about The Rock's "recent return" to help Mick Foley against Evolution. Consider this as confirmation to the recent radio and TV advertisements hinting at Rock's return.
