-The WWE Smackdown tapings take place tonight in Indianapolis, Indiana at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Vince McMahon will appear on the show to introduce the new general manager of the brand. My best guess? They didn't set it up as someone who has never served in that capacity, so I'm going with either John Laurinaitis or Teddy Long returning to the blue brnad.

-TNA wrestler Kid Kash (a/k/a David Cash) is 43 today. He was born on July 31, 1969. Kash appeared on television last week and appeared to be forming a tag team with Gunner.
