- Darren Young appeared on "The Ellen Show" about being the first openly gay WWE performer. His boyfriend Nicky was in the audience and Darren opened the interview by thanking Ellen for "paving the way" for him to be able to come out. You can watch the appearance at this link.

Young said it was the best move he ever made. I thought Ellen also had a really good quote from the piece that I'll include below:
"It's OK to be whoever you are you. It's OK to just be yourself. That is the message." - Ellen DeGeneres
- Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler for the United States Championship is still in the plans for WWE Night of Champions . We'll have exclusive live play-by-play coverage here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.

- It was brought up in a promotional appearance with Shawn Michaels and Keith Mark while promoting their Outdoors show on Kansas City radio that Michaels could potentially be coming back to Raw in the next couple of weeks. While HBK tried to downplay it, we've heard for several weeks about the possibility of including Michaels in the Triple H/Randy Orton/Daniel Bryan stuff.
- Wade Barrett is apparently in search of new theme music. Read the latest from him at this link.
