-- Kurt Angle appears on Between The Ropes tonight at 10PM EST and judging by past appearances Angle should be ON~! Be prepared for Delusionmania running wild all over you~!!!

-- Long-time Chicago wrestling promoter Bob Luce who passed away on 2/8 at the age of 78 was buried on Tuesday in Milwaukee. For close to three decades Luce promoted such wrestlers as Dick the Bruiser, the Crusher, Verne Gagne and Baron Von Raschke and promoted shows throughout the Indiana and Illinois areas. Luce also promoted boxing after he left the wrestling business in the early '80s but soon retired and spent time with his family.

-- ECW did a 1.5 rating while WSX did a 0.5 rating.

-- Speaking of last night, it was the most packed Tuesday night viewing I've had maybe ever. There was ECW followed by WSX, which I was flipping back and forth but mostly watching WSX which I liked this week, then ION had Bodog Fight from St. Petersburg as well as Pride on FSN at midnight.
