-- Like a lot of wrestling fans, Konnan tried to watch Robot Combat League to support Chris Jericho, a friend of his. Unfortunately, he was unable to enjoy the show like most people that tried doing the same thing. The consensus is that the WWE star is doing a good job, but the show format is holding him back. Konnan Tweeted: "Has anyone seen Robot Combat league..i wanna support anything Y2J does, but i couldnt get thru da first 20 minutes..Did i quit on it 2 soon?"
-- In the fall of 2008, Mark Jindrak was banned from wrestling in Tijuana, Mexico for a period of a year. Apparently, there is a rule down there where wrestlers are not allowed to do spots where the trunks are pulled down. All four performers were punished.
-- Ezekiel Jackson, who has not been used on the main roster in a while, is expected to be in New York City for WrestleMania 29 weekend. With the company rumored to be bringing up some wrestlers later this month, WWE officials could spend some time discussing future plans with Ezekiel Jackson.
