-- In an interview with The Phoenix New Times, Rob Van Dam compared WWE to TNA. He said: "In Total Nonstop Action, individual wrestlers have a lot more freedom to artistically express themselves versus WWE. When we have our matches, they are known to be more athletic, more competitive in nature, and that's what wrestling fans really appreciate. And the fact there's more of a focus on wrestling in Total Nonstop Action over the other major company on TV. Whereas WWE has been known to feature more of the 400-pound giants that aren't necessarily going to (perform) quite as impressively."
RVD has criticized the company in the past, but returned as recently as the 2009 Royal Rumble.
-- Legends of the Ring will have a private signing with the Dynamite Kid in the future. The deadline to send in items to get autographed is September 1. The price is $70 per item plus a flat rate of $20 to cover shipping. Insurance will cost extra. They will provide a photo of Dynamite Kid signing the item.
