That is considered a major disappointment as many in WWE had anticipated a much better result since it was Goldberg's first PPV match and on top of that, against the Rock. B) As reported before, it doesn't appear as if WWE is interested in signing the Road Warriors (Legion of Doom) to any sort of contract. Those closest to Vince McMahon believe that the one-match tryout on Raw was simply his way of getting back at them because they lost clean and basically had their gimmick destroyed. C) At one point there were (or maybe still are) plans for Kurt Angle to return as a face and to help turn Chris Benoit and Rhyno heel. From there, the idea was that Angle and Brock Lesnar would team up to take on the two but to continue to tease another Lesnar/Angle feud building towards next year's Wrestlemania. D) Chris Jericho was said to have gotten "aggressive" about his own ideas for the Highlight Reel and for the most part, the bookers have accepted his ideas and taken them seriously. E) Bill DeMott is reportedly going back to his "Hugh Morrus" gimmick from WCW. F) Dave Lagana is the man who apparently has come up with the idea of Brock Lesnar acting like a "big brother" to Rey Mysterio on Smackdown!. G) Because William Regal is sidelined indefinitely with his injuries, Triple H has suggested to make him a road agent. Even though it was originally feared that Regal's career could be over due to his illness, it is now believed that he will be able to resume wrestling but there is still no timetable for that return. H) A few weeks ago when Daffney accompanied Devon Storm for his tryout in dark matches, WWE didn't pay for her to fly in. Instead, she had to arrange for her ticket by herself and used her frequent flier miles to fly out to Philly and Baltimore. I) There are some rumors that Billy Graham will be brought back on TV in an attempt to re-build up his name in anticipation for his book being released next year. J) SmackDown this past Thursday night on UPN drew a 3.4 final rating, which is up .1 from last week’s 3.3 rating. The increase is expected with the rerun season starting on all the other major networks. K) WWE announced on a recent advertisement on a New York sports radio station that on the June 24th SmackDown house show will be Ultimo Dragon’s WWE debut. Of course, this will not be his debut as he has already wrestled some dark matches with the company, but is a good indication that he will be a full time superstar.
