Wrestling News World.com has coverage of a Twitter war of words between Trent Barreta and Kofi Kingston yesterday which started with Barreta calling Kingston an a-hole. Barreta of course was released from WWE last week. You can check it out at http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/trent-barreta-shoots-on-kofi-kingston-kofi-responds/.

Jim Ross has new blog up where he discusses Monday’s Raw and more. Here is part of that piece:
Always good to see so many old friends, both in and out of the wrestling biz, including my pals with ZZ Top, character actor @jpshellnut, and radio personality @seanpendergast. Spending some time at the downtown Hilton with these friends and Ric Flair provided some laughs and a walk or two down memory lane. (Naitch said that he was actually wrestling the Great Muta in Japan this month which I hope ends well.)
Upon arriving at the arena with @HeymanHustle and locating catering which always serves as essentially the 'student union' at these events I found out that I was going to call the @JohnCena vs. @HeelZiggler steel cage match which was the main event of the evening. I quickly started doing my homework and felt the adrenaline rush begin to build with the more info that I jotted down....much of which I never used. That, by the way, is not unusual. One mistake many announcers make is to prepare and then feel compelled to use every single iota of information that they have accumulated. The match dictates how much background info one can approiately fit into a presentation so one has to let the match come to them and fill in the blanks with data that helps enhance the story in the ring being told.
