Sports entertainment

As the world of wrestling goes on there are some interesting things that are going on.

  • WWE Raw 3 hours begins 7/23/12. Personally this is a bad idea. How much wrestling can a company do in a week? Raw 9-11pm on Monday. 1 hour of NXT on Wednesday, 1 hour of on Thursday, and let not forget Friday Smack down and Raw AM on Saturday morning. Let be really enough is enough. WWE is just overexposing a program that more about the drama then the actually wrestling. Knowing how Vince operated this will change and /or be drop in time. This is the only show that has more changes all the way to the start of production and even during production still make changes.
  • WWE released the cover for its upcoming 2nd edition of their encyclopedia. With over two hundred new entries
  • WWE No Way Out is schedule for 6/17/2012. The first match has been announced for the PPV
  • Cena vs. Big show,
