ProWrestling.Net reports that NBA Star Shaquille O’Neal will be the special host of next week’s WWE Monday Night RAW originating from Washington, D.C.

WrestleView.com and PWInsider.com both report that X Division wrestlers and the TNA X Division Championship were left off the Victory Road PPV last night due to a creative decision. TNA decided to keep the title off the PPV since they didn’t want to take the title off Homicide so fast with the theme of the show involving the “domination” of the Main Event Mafia winning or retaining all of the company’s main titles.
WrestleView.com and the Wrestling Observer report that Regis Philbin discussed on the July 20th edition of Live with Regis and Kelly on having dinner with Vince and Linda McMahon this past Saturday night. Philbin talked about how big Vince is in person and showed some photos of The Destroyer, noting he was his first guest on his first talk show back in 1963 in San Diego.
