OWW Weekly News & Notes for August 25th

You can access OWW Radio here: http://www.owwradio.com

Here is the obituary on Skandor Akbar (Jimmy Wehba) as it appeared in Sunday’s Dallas Times Herald.

The 46th annual Cauliflower Alley Club reunion will take place next April 18th to the 20th at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The hotel will be offering beautiful rooms for $32, and upgrade deluxe rooms for $50.

Sad to report the death of Lance Cade at the age of 29.

Can’t believe WWE released Serena without giving her a chance to shin in the ring. Especially after she completely changed her image and shaved her head for a WWE storyline! As usual, the WWE shows zero class.
