– Mr. Kennedy, whose been busy promoting the much anticipated DVD release of Behind Enemy Lines: Columbia on January 6, 2009, is officially scheduled to return to the ring in February. Kennedy is advertised for Smackdown’s South American tour in February, and has been confirmed to appear at the Saturday, February 21 house show in Lima, Peru. In recent interviews Kennedy said he’s targeting a February return from injury to be ready, but it will all come down to the success or failure of his current rehab. Tickets for the event in Peru went on-sale yesterday. Other wrestlers scheduled to appear at the show include Triple H, Undertaker, Edge, Jeff Hardy and Big Show.

– BostonHerald.com has an article on John Cena and WWE bringing their wrestling show to the U.S. soldiers in Iraq. The soldiers are “the bravest, most confident group of (butt)-kickers in the universe,” Cena said. “It is risky. But like I said, I’ve never felt safer in my life. Those men and women certainly have their act together over there.” He said the annual trip to Iraq is completely voluntary. “You don’t have to go if you don’t want to. Obviously, it’s a conflict area and there are risks involved. But we have to turn people away every year.” Cena also talked about much of undertaking it is to bring all the equipment and personnel to a site in the middle of a war zone. “A C-17 (aircraft) can fit, I believe, 110,000 pounds worth of cargo,” Cena said. “So we pretty much pack up our ring, the Titantrons, the ramps, the barricades, all the HD production stuff, our entire crew, all the superstars. We get on one plane. We fly over there. We spend anywhere from three to five days over there. The first two to four days are virtually the superstars trying to meet as many of the troops as we can while our crew is building the set.”
