calmly discusses rages to WWE.com about being "MISTER Hug-It-Out" and then demonstrates his hugging-it-out skill set for the camera during last night's (Sept. 3) episode of RAW.
What's it like working with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson?
Shane Douglas, trying to cause a ruckus during tonight's WWE Raw in Philadelphia. Give up the ghost already, Douglas. Geez.

Didn't have five hours to watch both Raw and Smackdown this week? What else you got going on, huh?! Okay, okay ... I'll calm down. Luckily, the WWE put together a 90 second video with all the best moments from both shows as we make our way towards Survivor Series tomorrow (Nov. 20) in New York. One question, though: what was up with The Rock's looking off into the middle on nowhere thing he had going on?
Mark Henry gets very emotional about deserving a World Heavyweight Championship run when Joey Styles asks him about his recent weight loss (he's lost about 60 pounds recently) during an interview right after he was drafted last night. You must watch this. It got me a lot more excited about his potential feud with Christian over the title. (FYI: According to a Sports Illustrated article from when he was 19 years old in 1991, his bone thickness and muscle density is such that he'd be 289 pounds if he had 0% body fat.)
An enterprising lad at YouTube has put together this fine video of some of CM Punk's best moments on color commentary in 2010. Lots of funny stuff and a fine way to commemorate the end of a great run.
Another episode of Last Call with Scott Hall, this time with Hall doing commentary with his friend Sean Waltman over their 1993 match on RAW.
I wonder if Matt Hardy will attack his shoot enemy, tell WWE to kiss his ass, mention a rival promotion and get dragged off in handcuffs again?
According to SpywareWrestling.com, on this day in pro wrestling history the Monday Night Wars officially began. The week prior was the actual debut of Nitro but Raw was preempted so it ran unopposed. The first head to head matchup was won by Nitro when they came in with a 2.5 rating compared to the 2.2 scored by Raw. Raw was in a pretty big slump during this period so Nitro struck at just the right time. They stole Lex Luger right out from underneath McMahon's nose, even though he didn't much want him anyway, and used him to help legitimize the show. He main evented the night in a match with Hulk Hogan. Nitro wouldn't really take off and blow the WWE away for 83 straight weeks until the spring of 96' when Scott Hall and Kevin Nash showed up. You know what happened then. Hogan, the heat seeking missile that he is, pun intended, latched on to the hot new angle, turning himself heel and the nWo was the biggest thing in the wrestling world. Eventually, WCW would collapse under it's own incompetency but it was fun while it lasted. Above is a cool video highlight of the Monday Night Wars set to "Slither" by Velvet Revolver. (Note - I understand that today is a very sensitive day regarding the history of America. I hope I'm not offending anyone by posting this. I figured it would be nice to come here and remember something different in history on this day that made us feel good.)
