[ROH News] As soon as it was reported that the Necro Butcher had signed to compete in the Four Corner Survival in Edison on 1/17, the ROH Booking Committee received a phone call from Delirious. Of course, no one could understand what he was really saying, but the implication was that he wanted into the match as well. As we learned previously, he will face the Butcher in a singles contest the night before in Manassas. What kind of damage will be inflicted on these two with TWO matches in back-to-back days?

[Misc News] Associated Press: It is with great excitement that we announce “The World Warrior” LOW-KI has joined World Wrestling Entertainment! Speculation had been in circulation after he participated in a non televised match November 4, 2008. Nothing was confirmed or reported, since it was assumed that he was still contractually obligated to compete in New Japan Pro Wrestling and was the IWGP Jr Heavyweight Champion. After NJPW’s “Wrestle Kingdom” events, contract negotiations begin for the new year. Terms apparently were not agreed upon and in his debut match, LOW-KI was victorious, putting away Florida Championship Wrestling’s Trent Berretta with the “Warrior’s Way”. Words cannot describe the excitement we feel here and we would like to congratulate “The World Warrior” on his incredible success! [reported by Dr. Keith Lipinski & http://www.low-ki.com]

[WWE Article] UPDATE 1-WWE to cut 10 percent of its workforce [reported by Mike Informer]
[Misc News] Although no official announcement has been made by either company, it appears Christian Cage is indeed leaving Total Nonstop Action for a return to WWE. His profile has been removed from the TNA website, which is the most significant sign that he has made his decision. Cage’s contract with TNA expired more than a month ago after renegotiation attempts stalled. Cage has held his decision close to the vest, with many of his closest of friends saying they couldn’t report his decision either way, even off the record.
