-WWE is holding a live, commercial-free Super Smackdown special on USA Network tonight beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT. The show will be held in Pittsburgh, Pa. at Consol Energy Center. The advertised main event of the television broadcast is John Cena and Sheamus vs. Big Show and Dolph Ziggler.

-Please note that the Super Smackdown show will be broadcast on USA Network rather than on its usual Syfy home tonight, though it will be replayed on Syfy on Friday. Tonight's show will not record if you have your DVR's set to record the show weekly. Join me for live coverage of WWE Smackdown as the show airs on USA Network tonight beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT.

-In the most important poll in the history of mankind, 54 percent of Dot Net voters gave the thumbs up to Cody Rhodes's mustache. 46 percent of the voters are soulless mustache haters, er, voted for the "Shave It" option. As you may have already figured out, I was a "Love It" voter. I also want to see him steal Alberto Del Rio's gimmick by driving a white windowless van into arenas as part of his entrance.

-The majority of Dot Net voters were wrong when it came to predicting which wrestler would leave WWE TLC as the World Hvt. Champion. 47 percent predicted that it would be Dolph Ziggler, 22 percent were correct in picking Big Show, 21 percent expected it to be John Cena, and only 9 percent expected Sheamus to leave with the strap.

-The Dot Net voters did a much better job with the TLC six-man tag match. 71 percent of the voters correctly predicted that The Shield would win the match, while 29 percent opted for Ryback, Kane, and Daniel Bryan.

-Former WWE Diva Trish Stratus (a/k/a Patricia Stratigias) is 37 today. She was born on December 18, 1975. You can keep up with Trish via her official website at

-TNA X Division Champion Rob Van Dam (a/k/a Robert Szatkowski) is 42 today. He was born on December 18, 1970.

-There are no pro wrestling shows listed for ESPN Classic tonight.
