-- Via Twitter, John "Bradshaw" Layfield denied an online report that he will commentate Monday's Raw at East Rutherford, New Jersey. He subsequently noted on Facebook that he will call the following night's SmackDown taping in Providence, Rhode Island.

-- Marvin "Brain Damage' Lambert, a brawler-style independent wrestler known for competing in "death matches," passed away Thursday as we noted earlier. Details concerning his death remain scarce, but according to sources, he committed suicide. He was just 34-years-old.

Lambert, who hailed from Cleveland, Ohio, and was trained by Toby Klein, locally broke into the professional wrestling business in 2000 before expanding to IWA Mid-South. In 2005, he joined Combat Zone Wrestling, where he competed off-and-on through last year. In the promotion, he was a two-time CZW Iron Man Champion and a two-time CZW Ultraviolent Underground Champion. He held both the Iron Man Championship and the Ultraviolent Underground Championship simultaneously.
