- Chris Jericho said during a Twitter Q&A that he has no more goals left in WWE, so he's just enjoying his time with the company. Jericho also noted he's targeting February 2014 to release his next book.
No. But I’m having more fun than ever!! @LozzyPurry: @IAmJericho are there any more goals you want to achieve in wwe?”Chris Jericho
Feb of 2014…hopefully!! @BrittneyyRyderr: @IAmJericho @fozzyrock Approximately when will your next book be out?”Chris Jericho
- WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin offered a glimpse into a new reality TV show that he began filming Wednesday.
Filming a pilot show for the next 2 days. This will be the toughest damn show on television. Finally...A real tough ass show. #bustassSteve Austin
- WWE announcer Jim Ross talked to Joey Styles of WWE's website about his "Spoken Word Tour" in the U.K. this August.

Ross previewed the nature of the tour: "A lot of those (wrestling) stories I’m going to be able to share. I think they’re all part of a changing time. I got in the wrestling business young; I was 22. Just chronologically getting into the business and being able to work the territory as a referee, and then a ring crew guy, and then ring announcing, and then broadcasting, and then promoting. I think this whole journey from when I started in the mid-'70s until today is going to be informative."

- WWE's "Money in the Bank Anthology" DVD, which is due out in October, will be hosted by The Miz. Amazon.com released a synopsis along with the official DVD listing on Wednesday.

DVD Synopsis: "Hosted by The Miz, the compilation features every Money in the Bank Ladder Match in history. The match debuted at WrestleMania 21 in 2005, quickly becoming a WrestleMania tradition and in 2010 proved so popular that it was given its own annual PPV event. Several top Superstars have been Money in the Bank winners including John Cena, Kane, Edge, C.M. Punk (twice!), Rob Van Dam, and many more... Much like the Royal Rumble Match, the Money in the Bank match represents a golden opportunity for a Superstar to achieve immortality, and its entire lineage is presented here."

- Amazon.com also released the synopsis for WWE's "Goldberg" DVD, which is also due out in October. The DVD appears to be respectful of Goldberg's career, as opposed to a "rise and fall" theme a la the Ultimate Warrior.

DVD Synopsis: "Goldberg was one of the most dominant and talented individuals ever witnessed in sports entertainment, exploding onto the scene by amassing an epic win streak of 173 matches. Throughout his WCW career he defeated legends such as Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Diamond Dallas Page. As he crossed over to the WWE, this powerhouse continued his dominance taking on such Superstars as The Rock, Triple H, and Brock Lesnar among others. This 3-disc compilation features some of the biggest matches in Goldberg's impressive career and showcases why his legacy will forever be cemented in sports entertainment."
