– WWE will be filming two Legends Roundtable shows this week to air in the future on 24/7 with Gene Okerlund, JJ Dillon, Michael Hayes, Nick Bockwinkel and Pat Patterson. The themes will be Wrestling in the 70’s and Tag Team Wrestling. The Roundtable shows were in jeopardy of being canceled a few months back as a cost-cutting measure but it looks like they are fine with the new tapings.
– John Cena had an MRI on January 24th to see how bad the damage was to his lower back and neck as it’s believed he’s been working with a bulging disc.
