Apparently, WWE was working Piper on a handshake deal, with no long term contract conditions. After hearing that Piper hated the man that he was in the ring and pretty much knocked WWE with his statements, WWE officials felt like there was no other alternative then to end their negotiations with him. This does not come to a surprise to anyone backstage in WWE, as the company was furious with Piper after the segment aired on HBO. Piper was said to have kept to himself backstage and never really showed signs of enthusiasm for the business. In conclusion, Piper seems to have lost his passion for wrestling and his job with WWE along with it. I wish Roddy the best in all that he goes on to do. B) WWE SmackDown finished with a 3.4 rating, with a 6 share this week. I must remind you that SmackDown was pre-empted in Philadelphia. C) It appears that Raven will miss the Ring of Honor show this weekend, and it seems he will have the entire weekend off due to the injuries suffered on Wednesday’s TNA show. D) Readers have sent word that Diamond Dallas Page now has some local car dealership radio commercials running in the Detroit area. Kimberly is also featured in the commercial, but DDP does most of the talking, and of course he included a “BANG!” here and there throughout the pitch. E) Both Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle will be working through injuries this weekend on a couple WWE house shows. As of now the card indicates Lesnar and Angle will team up against The Big Show and John Cena. F) For those wondering about the latest rumors of Trish Stratus appearing in Playboy, the story is that there is no story to tell. According to Stratus, negotiations with Playboy have not taken place. So obviously she will not be appearing in the magazine anytime soon. G) For anyone who may have read about the rumor of Kurt Angle taking on Hidehiko Yoshida in a gold medalist vs. gold medalist match in Pride, the story is completely false. A news paper in Japan ran the story simply to boost sales. H) Here are the 10 best selling wrestling books according to Amazon.com’s ratings: 1. Wrestlecrap: The Worst of Wrestling by R.D. Reynolds - overall ranking: 4,678 2. Hardy Boyz by Matt & Jeff Hardy - overall ranking: 5,070 3. Bobby the Brain by Bobby Heenan - overall ranking: 5,399 4. In the Pit with Piper by Roddy Piper - overall ranking: 6,544 5. J.R.'s Cookbook by Jim Ross - overall ranking: 6,946 6. Foley is Good by Mick Foley - overall ranking: 7,746 7. Classy Freddie Blassie by Fred Blassie - overall ranking: 9,028 8. Sex, Lies and Headlocks by Shaun Assael - overall ranking: 11,023 9. It's Good to be a King sometimes by Jerry Lawler - overall ranking: 13,587 10. Pure Dynamite by Dynamite Kid - overall ranking: 15,388 I) Former WWE and ECW wrestler Justin Credible was recently stripped of the PWF world title since Steve Corino no longer runs the company. The storyline view shows that Justin won the title at a non-PWF event so he is not the “true champion”, if you will.
