– World Wrestling Entertainment has plans to release a DVD compilation set on the greatest wrestling tag teams of all-time this summer. The DVD is actually being named after the short-lived tag team that consisted of Lex Luger and “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith for eight months in 1995 – The Allied Powers. Allied Powers: The World’s Greatest Tag Teams will be officially released on Tuesday, July 14, 2009.
– As announced on last night’s episode of ECW on Sci Fi, Theodore Long will be returning to SmackDown as the brand’s General Manager, with his assistant Tiffany replacing him on ECW. Long’s profile has been moved to the SmackDown roster section.
– The WWE website has an article looking at Vickie Guerrero becoming the new General Manager of RAW and what plans she may have in store for said brand. The article also speculates that Edge could be moved back to RAW in next week’s draft.
“Working on RAW also provides a benefit that many in the WWE Universe probably don’t think about. For you, SmackDown is the most exciting two hours on network television, but for those on the show, it’s a challenging, difficult (albeit exciting) job,” the article reads. “By moving to RAW, Vickie will have her Friday nights free for whatever she likes. If her hubby Edge gets drafted to RAW, then we’d suggest using the time for marriage counseling.”
The article also adds that Burn Notice star Bruce Campbell reminds them in no small way of “The Rated-R Superstar” what with his “imposing chin” and “smarmy charm.” The article speculates it being part of Guerrero’s master plan to get closer to the cast of USA Network’s original series.
