-The WWE Smackdown tapings take place tonight in Norfolk, Va. at the Norfolk Scope. The stipulation for the Kane vs. Edge match at TLC will be decided during the television show. The advertised dark match main event features Big Show, Rey Mysterio, and Edge vs. Kane, Jack Swagger, and Alberto Del Rio in a six-man tag match. We are looking for correspondents who can provide reports on the WWE Smackdown and WWE Superstars, as well as notes on the dark matches. If you are going to the show and can help, contact me at

-WWE NXT airs live tonight on the WWE website. This is the season finale of the third season of the show. The contest is down to Naomi and Kaitlyn. Naomi's athleticism has been impressive since the start of the season, and Kaitlyn has, well, bickered with Vickie Guerrero. Personally, I felt that Aksana and A.J. both showed more potential in terms of what WWE looks for in Divas these days.

-By the way, this is not expected to the final episode of WWE NXT. There have been rumblings from The Score in Canada that a fourth season is in the works. The Score has the NXT television rights, so one can only assume that the would know. If past seasons are any indications, then we should get a list of cast members for the fourth season of the show during tonight's broadcast. Thus, it could be a newsworthy show for once. Rich Twilling will provide live coverage beginning at 9:00 p.m. CT.

-Former WWE wrestler Tom Zenk (a/k/a Z-Man in WCW) celebrates his 52nd birthday today. He was born on November 30, 1958. He made stirred up a lot of attention with his shoot commentaries and blogs, but it's been a while since I've heard anything about Zenk.

-Former WCW wrestler and Smoky Mountain Wrestling regular Jimmy Del Ray turns 48 today. He was born on November 30, 1962. He was known as Jimmy Graffiti in WCW, and is probably best remembered as being one half of the Heavenly Bodies tag team that also spent time in WWE.

-The following matches are listed for the 11:00 p.m. CT airing of the AWA on ESPN Classic: John Nord vs. Spike Jones, Jonnie Stewart vs. Evans, Peterson and McCord vs. The Tokyo Bullets, Larry Zbyszko vs. The Trooper, Larry Zbyszko vs. Brad Rheingans for the AWA Title.
