– WWE Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho noted on his Twitter account twitter.com/iamjericho that he shot footage for VH1’s upcoming special, “100 Most Shocking Moments In Rock,” yesterday in Los Angeles. Jericho said the network will begin airing the special in November.
– The Elmira Star-Gazette has an article promoting this Saturday’s SmackDown/ECW live event at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton, New York. The article features a quote from SmackDown Superstar John Morrison pushing the event as being a better entertainment value than sports or concerts.
“WWE is one of those things that is designed for people to experience live,” Morrison said. “There’s concerts, there’s sporting events, there’s movies, but WWE is kind of like a fusion of all of those things. There’s nothing else like it.”
Morrison said he’s tentatively scheduled to wrestle Mike Knox on Saturday. “As far as who John Morrison fights, it doesn’t really matter, because the match that I will have in Binghamton will steal the show, and be the best reason that all the fine people of New York have for coming back to World Wrestling Entertainment the next time we come to Binghamton.”
Morrison said growing up, he idolized the likes of Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, Ultimate Warrior and “Macho Man” Randy Savage. “Growing up as a little kid, those were the guys that I idolized, that I wanted to be like,” Morrison said.
