According to a new report, there is currently a bill in play in South Carolina to have the classification of pro wrestling to be changed from a sport to entertainment. Lawmakers will vote next year on whether or not the bill will be put into law. If it ends up going through, the bill would remove power the local State Athletic Commission has over events promoted in the state.

Diamond Dallas Page’s trademark infringement lawsuit against rapper Jay-Z was officially settled on July 10 with the court signing off on a settlement agreement made between the two parties. According to reports, the settlement is said to have included a specific fee paid to Page, who in return has now dropped all claims in regards to the situation. Each side was responsible for their legal fees. The lawsuit, which had been going on for a while now, was started by Page stating that Jay-Z was using his “diamond cutter” signal that was trademarked by Page as part of his wrestling character.

Carlos Tamez sent this in: On this weeks edition of the wrestling magazine “Guerreros del ring” has a very interesting interview with Mistico talking about his beginnings, the future and the recent boo´s (Cena effect) about WWE he said quote: “There is big chances in life; and I really thank the opportunity they (WWE) gave me in San Jose, California, I think they are interested in me. It´s nice to know that they are interested in a luchador, it was a really nice experience, but I consider that the people of Mexico made me a star and it wouldn’t be nice to leave right now because I really want to give more to the people of this country.”

Michael Griffin sent this in: The Sun recently did a survey through its daily newspaper, asking parents and people in general whether they will allow their kids to watch WWE after the fallout from the Benoit tragedy.
