  • Regarding RAW star Ron Simmons’ recent trip to a rehab facility in Atlanta (the same one former WWE stars Scott Hall and Jake “The Snake” Roberts are staying at), what happened is that he was in “bad shape” backstage at the 12/29 Raw taping in Greensboro, NC. It was a cause of concern on the part of WWE officials and they sent him to rehab shortly thereafter.
  • Paul London hasn’t fully healed from his foot injury, which has put him out of action since the middle of December. In case you didn’t notice, he never actually tagged in his return match on the 2/4 Raw. He didn’t work the taping for the next week’s show, and at last night’s Heat taping, he accompanied Brian Kendrick to the ring for a singles match with Lance Cade. The 2/4 Raw happened to take place in London’s hometown of Austin, Texas, and he didn’t know that he was going to be working the show until he arrived to the building.
  • Regarding the severity of Rory McAllister’s pec tear injury, it will keep him sidelined for about six months. Rory, the bald Highlander, wasn’t aware of the injury until he hurt his chest in a match. WWE had him see a doctor to check it out. After an MRI, the doctor informed him that he had torn his right pectoral completely off the bone. Rory underwent surgery on 2/10. With Rory out of action for six months, that puts his tag partner Robbie McAllister in a quandary to say the least as he rarely wrestles in singles matches, let alone coming out victorious in them. Robbie lost to “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan in a dark match last night.
  • BBC America is currently airing old episodes of “Dancing With the Stars.” Right now they’re airing episodes from the season in which former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler appeared on. Keibler wasn’t eliminated from the competition until the final show, so you can see her dancing exploits on every single episode. The show airs at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. every Wednesday and Sunday. Also, you can catch Keibler’s 2005 appearance on “Punk’d” this Saturday at 8:30 a.m. on MTV2.
