Ryan Clark

The racing reality series that WWE champion John Cena will take part in on ABC will run for six half hour episodes, followed by a one hour series finale. Some of the other celebrities involved include William Shatner, Serena Williams, Jewel, Ty Williams, and John Elway. The series will be filming this week at the Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina. The basic of the series is that a number of professional race car drivers will be instructing celebrities on the finer points of racing before they enter a series of different competitions.

WWE’s new deal with Cingular was covered by today.

Ernie “The Cat” Ladd’s passing has continued to receive a lot of national media attention. World Wrestling Entertainment ran a tribute video last night on Monday Night Raw.

According to The Calgary Sun, there is a report making the rounds that Ted Annis (aka Teddy Hart) will be signing a deal with WWE once his contract with MTV expires (Hart was part of the Wrestling Society X project). There has been a lot of talk about him coming into WWE for some time to possibly team with Harry Smith and Nattie Neidhart to create a new Hart Foundation. However, when Teddy Hart’s name is involved, you don’t always take everything you hear 100% seriously. So for now we will take this as nothing but a strong rumor, if anything.

The Extreme Battle Royal will open up tonight’s ECW on Sci Fi from Trenton, New Jersey. ECW champion Bobby Lashley vs. Randy Orton plus an appearance by Mick Foley are also scheduled.

Gormer WCW World champion David Arquette (who doubled starring in the infamous film “Ready to Rumble”) will be signing this April at the Chiller Theatre horror convention.
