– In an update on our earlier post about WWE’s return to Japan in August, they have announced some matches now. Yoshi Tatsu will wrestle Chris Jericho on August 20th, John Cena will face Sheamus on that same show and the August 21st show will feature Rey Mysterio vs. Randy Orton and Cena & Tatsu vs. Jericho & Sheamus.
– The 900th episode of WWE’s Monday Night RAW will take place on August 30th in Binghampton, New York.
– The impression within WWE among most is that Daniel Bryan didn’t know about the “Chris Benoit protocol” where talents aren’t supposed to choke each other with objects. Word is that the protocol was something that was talked about in meetings and some of the talents who have been around for a few years knew about but it wasn’t something that was talked about regularly. There is a lot of sympathy right now for Bryan.
