– We reported earlier here on WrestlePages.com that WWE has announced The Undertaker for the September 10th episode of SmackDown from Madison Square Garden in New York City. The reason WWE added him to the show is at least in part due to slow ticket sales. WWE will be taping both RAW and SmackDown from MSG that week and tickets for both shows have not been selling well, with SmackDown in particular lagging behind. The hope is that by announcing Undertaker, more tickets will be sold.
– Cedric Alexander confirmed in an interview with ProWrestlingSheet.com that Paul Heyman has been working with him on his mic work. Heyman is a big fan of Cedric’s in-ring work but felt he needed some help projecting himself to the fans.
– A rumor that started at HeelByNature.com indicates WWE could be looking to nix 205 Live with NXT moving to the USA Network. As the rumor goes, the cruiserweight division would be absorbed into the second hour of NXT.
– Congratulations to The Rock, who married longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian in Hawaii over the weekend. Below is a photo:
