– As noted earlier, the WWE Draft scheduled for April 13th at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia will be a three-hour program. Due to the three-hour Draft, WWE probably won’t be able to tape a slate of matches for the new Superstars TV show debut. If that’s the case, the first “Superstars” taping will take place the very next week when RAW is at the London O2 Arena in the United Kingdom.
– This past Friday, E! aired the The Soup’s 2009 Awards Show. A heavy-breathing, face-to-face backstage segment from a November episode of RAW with Randy Orton, Manu, and Cody Rhodes was featured as a nominee for the following category: “Best Display of Homoeroticism By A Guy Who Is Totally Not Gay… Seriously… Come On You Guys… I Mean It.”
The segment featured an intense staredown between Rhodes, Manu (breathing heavily), and Orton. Unfortunately, the segment didn’t win. The winner was Chet from “The Real World” who denied being gay. He was shown wearing a pink pop-up collar that he made on a sewing machine, followed by a roommate singing, “I knew he was gay all along.” This is the fourth time in which the backstage segment has been featured on an episode of The Soup.
