Reader Cory sent this in: MVP was on BET’s Rap City show yesterday to promote the SmackDown vs. RAW 2008 video game. MVP talked about his past growing up in the ghetto and getting locked up and doing prison time. He also talked about going to Iraq and WWE doing the Tribute to the Troops special. It was really a good segment with MVP coming off good in and out of character.

WWE took out a full page advertisement in the New York Times to promote MondayĆ¢<80><99>s Tribute to the Troops show. The advertisement features Triple H with a soldier as well as John Cena and Rey Mysterio. The company has uploaded it on their official web site as you can view it at

The 19-year old son of former WWF star Mike Barton aka Bart Gunn died on Wednesday. Mike Polchlopek III was accidentally shot by his 18-year-old friend Cody Grooms, who was cleaning a .22 caliber rifle which went off.

DH Smith makes his in-ring return on this week’s edition of WWE Heat. He takes on Charlie Haas in the Heat main event. This is his first televised match since 10/29 as he was suspended for 30 days due to “violations of WWE’s Substance Abuse and Drug Policy” later that week. Other matches on Heat include Duggan & Super Crazy vs. The Highlanders and Snitsky vs. a local wrestler.

Yesterday’s edition of “Page Six” in the New York Post notes that Juliet Huddy of Fox’s “Morning Show With Mike and Juliet” named Hulk Hogan and Jessica Alba as the show’s two worst guests in an interview with Steppin Out magazine. Huddy said, “Truth be told, [Hogan] really was kind of this unfriendly jerk. I thought, ‘Are you kidding me?'” Regarding Alba, Huddy said, “She never opened up about anything. Mike [Jerrick] asked her something about Cash [Warren], and she said, very seriously, ‘Sorry, but I don’t talk about those things.’ Oh God! Don’t they know that the reason people are interested in them is because of their personal lives?”
