Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka – Monday, April 30
Bret “Hitman” Hart – Tuesday, June 12
Midget Wrestling exhibition – Saturday, Sept. 1

– Out of all the new WWE YouTube shows that recently came out, WWE officials have been most impressed with Dolph Ziggler’s WWE Download show.

WWE Hall Of Famer Road Warrior Animal, who hosts Extreme Pro Wrestling Radio on 100.3 KFAN in Minneapolis, Minnesota, stated during a recent show that he doesn’t think Sting is a wrestling icon until he passes through WWE.

“Sting is not in the same league as guys like Triple H, Stone Cold, The Rock. Sting will never be considered a legend or icon until he lets his pride go and joins WWE. He needs to bury his personal issues and just get into the WWE. Sting has to come over to the WWE to be that guy, it’s a bigger stage. Impact is one thing, the WWE is a way bigger thing,” Animal said.

Animal also takes credit for Sting’s arrival to the National Wrestling Alliance in 1987.

“The NWA was looking for a spot for Sting and I said make him a brother in paint and then Sting joined us (Road Warriors) in our six-man matches,” he said.

On the best singles worker of all time, Animal said, “Easily, (Ric) Flair!”

— WWE held a promotion at Friday’s Raw live event at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario, Canada where attendees who purchased Dolph Ziggler’s Show Off Pink T-Shirt could meet the WWE Superstar at intermission. Rival company TNA Wrestling holds similar promotions at their live events.

In another addition, WWE brought a video screen and showed footage of top-tier talent getting ready for the show. A video message from Chris Jericho was shown.

— Fresh off being inducted into the International Sports Hall of Fame last week, Mark Henry triumphed over Ezekiel Jackson with the World’s Strongest Slam on Friday’s SmackDown. This extends Jackson’s losing streak to six in televised singles matches. He also has yet to win a match in 2012.

— Retired luchador Pierroth, Jr. turns 54 years old Saturday.

— Former WCW World Tag Team Champion Scotty Riggs is now on Twitter at REALScottyRiggs.
