— WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel turns 62 years old today.
— There are no pro wrestling shows listed for ESPN Classic tonight.
— SPOILER ALERT: When Ryback has been facing his opponents as of late, WWE has been having fun with them, such as announcing the guys from rival cities. This week, Ryback faces Tony Andriotic and Kevin Mahoney; both are wrestlers under different names on the independent scene. They are announced as being from Clemson, South Carolina, the rival of the University of South Carolina, which is located in Columbia, South Carolina (the location of the tapings).
Kevin Mahiney, real name John Skyler, is reportedly a graduate of South Carolina. Tony Andriotic, real name Michael Freehly, is an Army Reservist who is heading to Afghanistan this week.
