- Triple H and Arn Anderson both appeared in off air segments at this week’s Smackdown tapings. Triple H came out to pedigree Drew McIntyre after he demanded an official explain why he wasn’t main eventing.
Arn Anderson was used as a guest enforcer, during a dark match that saw Sheamus retain the World Heavyweight Title against Kane in a Steel Cage.
[Although people will rag on Triple H for doing this, it gives the live crowd a legend to cheer and it doesn't harm McIntyre because it won't be shown on TV.]
- Speaking of Smackdown Smashing Pumpkins front-man Billy Corgan was backstage to support John Skyler, one of his Resistance Pro wrestlers who was jobbing to Ryback. Corgan who is a huge wrestling fan and was involved with ECW and TNA, is currently shopping a reality show around about his new promotion.
Here he is backstage with Natalya:
- Jesse Sorensen was able to remove his neck brace while backstage at last week’s Impact Wrestling. He’s still a long way off returning to the ring but he’s said to be in positive spirits and doing well.
- Former WWE star JBL will be climbing the highest peak on each continent of the world to help raise money for a charity in Bermuda. JBL was going to pay for the trips on his own but TMZ reports that WWE has given the project a quarter-million dollar boost.
It’s possible he’ll get a segment on WWE TV in the coming weeks to promote it.
