- Jack Swagger, Zeb Colter, The Great Khali, Natalya and The Miz appear in this week’s edition of “Backstage Fallout” for SmackDown.

The synopsis states, “Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter tells the WWE Universe what it needs, while The Great Khali … well, you just have to hear for yourselves.”

- The official WWE website has published an article recalling “The Funking’ Dojo,” training camps ran by WWE Hall of Famer Dory Funk, Jr. in 1998 and 1998 that produced such Superstars as Edge, Kurt Angle, Christian, Mark Henry and the Hardy Boyz.

Beginning in 1998, following Angle’s jump from amateur wrestling to professional wrestling, Funk was the current TNA Wrestling Superstar’s primary trainer. The WWE Hall of Famer says it was quite easy teaching Angle.

“I told him anything you did in amateur wrestling you can do in professional wrestling, but you’ve got to adapt your style to what we do here at WWE,” Funk said.

- In today’s birthdays, former WWE wrestler Henry O. Godwinn turns 49 years old, former WWE wrestler Ken Dykstra turns 27, and former WWE developmental wrestler Brett DiBiase turns 27.
