— In case you haven’t noticed, and many apparently haven’t, Hardcore Holly & Cody Rhodes haven’t defended their WWE World Tag Team Championships on television in about four and a half months. The last time they defended the belts on television was the night after Armageddon on December 17, 1007 when they defeated Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch in their lone title defense. Of course, Holly & Rhodes have wrestled tag matches on Raw since then, but they’ve all been non-title matches.
— Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry, is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com. The book should be available in June. To clarify an earlier report, the book will actually not be centered around racism in World Wrestling Entertainment, reports prowrestling.NET. The book will contain issues regarding racism with the WWE creative team, but it is not centered around racism. It will be an investigative piece regarding the life of Chris Benoit and the pro wrestling industry.
