-- WWE Hall of Famer Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat turns 59 years old today.

-- As noted late last night here on the website, Randy Orton will face World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan on this week's episode of WWE SmackDown. The synopsis reads: "This Friday at 8/7 CT on Syfy, Randy Orton will return to SmackDown with his eyes locked on Daniel Bryan - just two weeks after the World Heavyweight Champion gave WWE's Apex Predator a concussion that kept him out of the Elimination Chamber Match."

-- Matches taped Monday night in Portland, Oregon for this week's episode of WWE Superstars are as follows:

* WWE Divas Champion Beth Phoenix vs. Alicia Fox in a non-title match

* Santino Marella vs. Curt Hawkins (accompanied by Tyler Reks)

No pre-show dark match was held.
