– SmackDown isn’t the only program holding a 500th episode celebration during the month of March as Ohio Valley Wrestling will be too next week. The following memo was sent out:

“This Wednesday night, March 4th is the 500th episode of Ohio Valley Wrestling on the air in the Tri State region. Not only will all your current Stars from OVW be there, but many names from the past 500 shows as well.

We are expecting an all time record breaking crowd so please get your tickets early. The event will be held in the Davis Arena at 4400 Shepherdsville Rd. Louisville, Kentucky 40218. Doors open Wednesday, March 4th at 6:00 p.m. Bell time is 7:00 pm. Come join OVW for this historic night of action.”

– In an interview with Alex Marvez, former WWE wrestler Kenn Doane (a.k.a. Kenny Dykstra) talks about being unable to find his niche in the company and life following his November release. Doane tried his best to adapt to management’s vision for the Dykstra character, but things never seemed to click.

“Whichever way I stepped, I always had someone telling me, ‘No, do it like this.’ It was hard,” Doane said.

He also admits that his character “had no range.” Also a result, he was often left in a secondary role to either Victoria or Johnny Nitro and mired in low-level feuds against the likes of Nick “Eugene” Dinsmore and . Having done little with the company last year (he didn’t return to television from an injury at the start of the year until the week before ), his release from the company wasn’t too devastating for him. While his 90-day no-compete clause recently expired, he hasn’t received many offers to wrestle.

“I like doing this,” Doane said. “It sucks right now that I’m not.”

In the meantime, he is considering pursuing career opportunities in real estate and personal training. Though, he still hopes for a livelihood in wrestling.
