As determined on tonight’s Raw, Shawn Michaels and John Bradshaw Layfield will square off on next week’s show. The winner of the contest will earn the right to challenge Undertaker to a match at WrestleMania 25.
– ECW Superstar Christian is scheduled to start working house shows this weekend. WWE.com is advertising him for all three Raw/ECW house shows this weekend (Friday in Huntington, West Virginia; Saturday in Bristol, Tennessee; Sunday in Asheville, North Carolina). The website is also advertising him for next Monday’s Raw/ECW taping in Nashville.
– WWE.com has updated Sim Snuka’s profile photo to reflect his current plain black T-shirt gimmick. He’s also now being billed from his place of birth, Lā’ie, Hawaii, instead of “The Other Side of the Tracks.” You can see his updated profile at the following link. Snuka, as well as Manu, have not appeared on television since their beatdown at the hands of Legacy on the January 12, 2009 episode of Raw. The two second generational wrestlers have not resurfaced at house shows or WWE’s developmental promotion either, so their current status in the company remains in question.
– As announced on Raw tonight, brothers Terry & Dory Funk, Jr. are being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this April. WWE.com has already added a profile on The Funks to their Hall of Fame section, which you can see at the following link.
