Before sentencing Nick, Judge Philip Federico explained, “There’s no magic answer, no perfect way to do it.” Nick- his face immobile during sentencing- will be serving his time at Pinellas County jail, followed with five years probation, 500 hours community service, three years driving license suspension, DUI School and nearly $7,000 in fines. Nick has 30 days to appeal the decision and his sentence started immediately after the ruling.

Here’s a further update on Kurt Angle’s neck injury. Sources say Kurt Angle did not wrestle at TNA’s house show in Barre, VT. Angle injured his neck when he was dropped incorrectly during a match in Seoul, South Korea and said after the event that he would need to be evaluated by a doctor when he returned to the United States. Kurt Angle is still expected to wrestle on Sunday’s Sacrifice PPV.

Saturday Night’s Main Event is going to return to NBC on August 2nd, in a one-hour format starting at 9pmET.

On August 4th, 2008, Monday Night Raw will be held at the Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tennessee. Apparently, Knoxville hasn’t hosted a televised WWE event since 2003.

There’s a rumor that internal discussions are underway to select Steve Austin as the headline act to be inducted into the WWE hall of fame next year in Houston, TX.

Apparently, Psicosis was recently deported back to Mexico after being caught attempting to cross U.S./Mexican border with invalid paperwork. The former WCW and WWE superstar tried to use tourist papers to gain access to the U.S. to work an independent show.
