– Former WWE star Rob Conway won the NWA title in San Antonio, Texas, defeating Kahagas yesterday at an NWA Outlaw Wrestling event.

- Dutch Mantell posted the following to his Facebook page, his first since returning to WWE as Zeb Colter:

Hey guys…sorry I haven’t been around much but since I’ve gotten a ‘new job’ I’ve been running like crazy. There’s not enough time in the week to handle all the things now. I’m not leaving, I’m just having to back out for a while. I’m the same guy…just with a different perspective now.

Keep supporting Amanda and the cause and I promise, I’ll be back soon with the Dutchism’s and the BS. I have a lot of great stories to tell…funny how life changes. What a story. I’ll keep it until the next book. You won’t believe it. Take care…keep watching. This could get very interesting.

Amanda is his granddaughter, who as previously reported died in a car accident last year.
