— It has been confirmed that Jim Ross will be inducting “Cowboy” Bill Watts into the WWE Hall of Fame this April. Ross worked under Watts in the Mid-South territory in the 1980s and have been close friends for a number of years.
— Joe sent in the following… First off, great site, I read it daily. Secondly, found this little tip that could spoil the next two PPVs including tonight’s Royal Rumble. WWE Raw on 2/16 scheduled to take place at the Spokane Arena is advertising a main event of John Cena vs Randy Orton for the championship on the arena’s event calendar. You can see the official calendar (with the spoiler) at http://www.spokanearena.com/arenaevents.php – just scroll down to Feb 16.
— Nick Cleroux sent in the following… I was on WWE.COM a few weeks ago and noticed that their Royal Rumble history section is wrong. The first Royal Rumble was indeed held back in 1988 but it took place in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada at Copps Coliseum not at MSG as the WWE states on their Rumble History page. I’ve E-Mailed WWE several times without response which makes me think that they don’t really care about being correct. They even show pictures of the first Rumble match and the pictures clearly aren’t of MSG. Whenever there is a WWE show at MSG, the ring is always dead centre with that tunnel that leads to the back (They’ve used it as an entrance way for countless PPV’s). You will notice that in the pictures of the ’88 Rumble, there is no tunnel. Just thought you guys might like to know.
*SPOILER* On huge turn tonight
