Lots Of News: RAW, Y2J, Austin Update, The New RAW Deal

Ryan Clark

The drop in this past Mondayâ<80><99>s RAW rating is being blamed on the huge number that Monday Night Football did over on ESPN. The game featuring the undefeated New England Patriots at the Baltimore Ravens was the most watch television show in the history of cable television.

FHM.com has an interview with Chris Jericho. He talks about the worst moment in the history of Raw, his new book, wrestling in Japan, and fanny packs.

Everyone in WWE was said to be very pleased with the USA Network renewing RAWâ<80><99>s contract through 2010. While the company maintains that they would be able to self broadcast at any moment on WWE.com, no one actually wants to see that happen. It is in the companyâ<80><99>s best interest to have a long term television deal and with yesterdayâ<80><99>s announcement it appears as if that will be a reality for at least the next two years.

Former WWE Champion and Professional Wrestling Icon, Stone Cold Steve Austin joined WDFN’s “It Is What It Is” morning show on Friday to talk about his appearance at the Extreme Monster Truck Nationals at The Palace of Auburn Hills this Saturday. If you missed the interview you can find out how to download it for free at wdfn.com, keyword “wrestling”.

From Aaron Ausmus: I have Buckeye cable in Ohio and the description for the Raw XV Special says “Featured: Stone Cold, Triple H, Undertaker, Bret Hart, the McMahon family, Hulk Hogan.”

Luna Vachon announced in a bulletin on her MySpace page (www.myspace.com/lunavachon) that she’s retiring from the wrestling business. Her body cannot handle the rigors of wrestling anymore, hence the retirement. Her last match takes place at an indy show in Milwaukee later tonight. Here is her message: You heard it here first. Hey Lunatics. I just want to let you all know how much I appreciate all of your love and support, that is why it hurts me so much to tell you all this. On Friday December 7th in Milwaukee I will be retiring from wrestling. My body has just taken on way too much abuse and I cannot actively compete. I just want you all to know that I love you all and i will miss seeing all my wonderful fans. If you live in the Milwaukee, Chicago area I hope you can make it out and see me one last time. Just so you know this was not an easy decision for me, but I have to do what is best for my future. Hope you can come and see me at Blizzard Brawl more info here www.BlizzardBrawl.com. Love and God Bless, Luna
