– Former ECW backstage announcer Lena Yada posted a blog on her MySpace account talking about seeing her former WWE co-workers at a recent show. She also says she spoke to former WWE Diva Victoria over and the phone. The two were travel partners during Yada’s short stay in WWE.

“I just spoke with Victoria on the phone and I must say, I MISS HER!!!!! I feel very fortunate to have been able to work with her and more so, to still have her friendship. She is truly one of a kind,” Yada wrote. “A couple of the boys were in town for the west coast house shows and tapings. It was super fun to see them and hang out again. Sorry everybody, no pics this time….my camera was broken 🙁 But I must say, and please repeat after me: Alcohol is not a food group….alcohol is not a food group….”

– As announced on Monday’s RAW, Terry and Dory Funk, Jr. will be inducted into the 2009 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony in Houston, Texas. Dory Funk, Jr. offered comment on the honor to the Ocala Star-Banner “I feel so privileged,” Funk said. “This is one of the highlights of my life.” The brothers will be inducted by Dusty Rhodes, who helps run things in WWE’s developmental promotion in Tampa, Florida. Dory Funk, Jr. runs a wrestling training school out of Ocala, and has helped trained the likes of , Amy “” Dumas & “up and comer” Adam Windsor.

– WWE continues to celebrate Black History Month with a look at the career of ECW General Manager Theodore Long. Long is also featured on the latest episode of “Legends of Wrestling” on WWE 24/7 Classics on Demand.

– WCW SuperBrawl III won the “Pick Your Big One” poll on WWE 24/7 Classics on Demand. Therefore, the event is scheduled to air later in the month. When put up the match listing for the show, ’s encounter with Too Cold Scorpio was interestingly listed. Although, WWE 24/7 still cuts out matches featuring Benoit, so it was probably a mistake on the website’s part. WWE 24/7 has aired the pay-per-view before as it was available on the video on demand service a week or two before his double murder and (and still available for a few days following the incident). Also, this month’s poll features IV, X, and XII. On, ’s pictured for X even though he didn’t appear at the event.
