-- ROH wrestler Rhett Titus says he is not booked for Ring of Honor's 11th Anniversary iPPV this weekend. "Very dissapointed to find out I wont be on @ringofhonor #11YA. No time for complaints I will still find a way to #CelebrateHonor," Titus tweeted Monday.
-- Something to keep an eye out is YouTube possibly moving into the pay-per-view business. Tech blogs picked up on a new code in Android's YouTube App that reads: "You can only subscribe to this paid channel on your computer," which suggests the future launch of pay channels. Whether this leads to WWE, TNA, or other promotions shifting pay content to YouTube remains to be seen. [ Details here at NeoWin.net . Thanks to PWTorch reader Jose. ]
-- Former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler was at the Academy Awards show with her boyfriend, actor George Clooney, Sunday night. WWE typically does not acknowledge former stars, but in the case of using Keibler's appearance to make WWE seem connected to mainstream, WWE published a photo gallery of Keibler at Oscars at WWE.com .
