Roddy Piper will be participating in the 14th annual G.I. JOE Collector’s Convention, hosted by the G.I. JOE Collector’s Club and Hasbro, Inc. Piper will become an honorary member of the COBRA forces as attendees will be able to purchase an exclusive, limited-edition Piper 3 3/4″ scale action figure. The Hot Rod will also participate in panels and sign autographs tomorrow during the convention. The convention is taking place at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel and started today and ending Sunday.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Mistico was injured last night during a match in Toluca, Mexico. He reportedly was coming off the top rope to the floor attempting a spinning head scissors, but his opponent slipped and Mistico landed on his head. He was rushed to the back, evaluated and then rushed to Mexico City for testing. It was ruled he had a contusion on his brain, while X-Rays have ruled out more serious injuries. He is said to be on medication right now to avoid further inflammation of the neck and spine.

Chris Jericho has indeed picked WWE over TNA and that he is likely to make his return at the No Mercy PPV on October 7. Jericho was said to have been in talks with both WWE and TNA, but opted to make his return to wrestling with WWE instead (although anyone who saw the “Larry King Live” with Jericho and other WWE stars could obviously see where he was leaning to).
