– In what appears to be a Ticketmaster glitch and a strange coincidence, the website is advertising a World Championship Wrestling (WCW) show for Friday, July 8th, 2011 at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida at 7pm. Ticketmaster says tickets for the event go on sale November 6th of this year.
What makes this unusual, besides the WCW mention, is that the date is almost 15 years to the day since Hulk Hogan formed the NWO in the same building. Hogan joined Scott Hall and Kevin Nash on July 8th, 1996 at WCW’s Bash at the Beach pay-per-view from the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach. Thanks to Christy for sending that in.
– Former WWE star Jimmy Wang Yang has opened his own extermination company in Cincinatti, Ohio called Jimmy’s Pest Control. You can see their company website at jimmyspestcontrol.com.
– For those wondering, UFC President Dana White’s major announcement today is not related to Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. Sources report that White’s announcement has to do with UFC looking to launch their own cable network. As noted yesterday, WWE’s planned cable network has been pushed back to 2012 which means UFC will likely get their own network before WWE does.
