— On the WWE Experience show that aired in Canada yesterday, they plugged Mr. Kennedy as if he was never fired. They showed his return promo and then the ten-man tag with no acknowledgment that he is no longer with the company.

— UK wrestling viewership for the week ending in 5/17: iMPACT drew over 57,000 viewers, the highest rated RAW was the Thursday replay which drew 58,000, while all of the Smackdown airings did below the 45,000 mark. An Ultimate Fighter replay drew 30,000 viewers, but it shows on Virgin 1 which is a better station than any station wrestling is on and always gets more viewers.

— Mick Foley, New Jack, Tammy Sytch, and Mike Graham have been added to the Terry Funk roast on 10/23 in Monroe, Los Angeles. Graham worked with Funk a lot in Florida, while Foley is someone Funk almost considers a protégé. Also in attendance will be comedian Ryan Maher, pro wrestling icon Dennis Stamp, and others.
