Lesnar stayed with friends in San Antonio, TX this week after Smackdown because he was scheduled to see a doctor there about his injured rib, which has been bothering him for months now. He was out on the water with friends while he was there and he fell out of the boat he was in. His leg hit the propeller and sliced open a cut about three inches long and an inch deep in his leg, behind his knee. He was taken for medical attention and received numerous stitches. He woke up today and his knee was really swollen. It's not known if he will be able to wrestle at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday for Smackdown at this time. But, it should be noted that from what I heard, despite an injury that maim most people, Brock has refused pain medicine. The guy truly is a monster. B) This week's edition of Smackdown did a 3.2 broadcast rating, with a 5.7 share. That is down from last week's 3.7 but it should be noted that the show this week was preempted in Los Angeles for Dodgers baseball. C) For those wondering, Kurt Angle was said to be feeling fine after his match with Charlie Haas this week. That would be a good sign since Kurt worked very hard in the match and didn't shy away from taking bumps. D) Sable is said to be Vince McMahon's favorite WWE character at this point in time. He has reportedly put over her work in a big way since she has returned to the company. It's hard to believe that there was so much acrimony when she left and she has vaulted to such a high position in the company upon her return. It just goes to show that you can never say never. It's just said that her returning to WWE coincided with the split of her and husband Marc Mero. As I wrote in the Lariat, the wrestling business is not a good one if you are trying to maintain a relationship with a significant other. E) Ted From Independence (Caller extraordinaire on the Pro Wrestling Insider) just sent along this report of Mick Foley talking on Byte This yesterday about what WWE had planned for him at Raw at Madison Square Garden on Monday. I just listened to the archive - here's what they said when talking about RAW at MSG Monday - it's about 38 minutes into the show if you need to know. Foley - "It's going to be a big deal and Tommy (Dreamer), I don't know if you caught wind of this - there is a rumor that they're going to do something special for me, and that you might be a part of it." Dreamer - "Really... No I have not - well...that would be cool." Foley - "Hopefully I'm not ruining the surprise but - they've also discussed bringing Terry Funk in for the occasion." Dreamer - "Awesome... We'll have a three way hardcore dance baby." Foley - "Well, I don't think they were insinuating that we would get physically involved, but they might do something." F) Along side his appearance on TSN’s “Off the Record,” Jim Ross appeared on Edge 102 in Toronto and taped a segment for the LAW this coming Sunday night. Ross talked about numerous things including his cookbook, Sable being back, as well as Steve Austin’s walkout. One thing that I found interesting is that Ross stated that Austin was hurt far worse than anyone knew when he walked out and that he still needs two more vertebrae fused in his neck (which we all now know about). G) Former ECW wrestler Steve Corino was reportedly charged on May 19th with forgery and misdemeanor relating to credit card and check fraud incidents. Apparently, he forged a check in the amount of $2100 a couple years ago and then charged $10,000 to a credit card which did not belong to him. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for this Monday and Corino's bail is set at $10,000. H) According to Slam! Wrestling, which isn't always accurate with their news and rumors, there is a possibility that Kevin Nash will dress up as Kane and wrestle Triple H this Monday on Raw. I) As I reported Monday night, neither Shawn Michaels nor Kevin Nash were written into RAW this week. From what has been said, Michaels was not even in Dallas at the show and it is believed that Kevin Nash wasn’t there either. Nash is wondering the direction that WWE will give him now that his feud with Triple H is over. As for HBK, we all know that he wasn’t happy after Bad Blood and his upcoming direction with WWE is also unknown. J) According to various reports, Eric Bischoff did not want to do the pie eating angle with Mae Young this past Sunday at Bad Blood. Apparently, Young found out that Bischoff was less than happy to do it, so as a rib she put an anchovy in her underwear before she went out so things would be a little extra smelly for Bischoff. Although it sounds unbelievable, it is said to be true.
