[WWE Notes] Here is some useless trivia – Dusty Rhodes came up with the idea of the Great American Bash in 1985 headlining the show against Tully Blanchard in a cage, and now 23 years later Dusty’s son Cody, at age 23, features on the card.

[WWE Notes] The former Ultimate Warrior showed up at the Marriott yesterday in Long Island basically across the street from the GAB PPV. He was dressed in full gimmick with his old WWF IC title belt signing autographs for fans. The WWE actually sent Warrior legal papers on 7/9 requesting that he move his public appearance to another location on the grounds that he is ‘exploiting’ the popularity of the WWE for his own commercial gain. Go figure! The guys at wrestlingfigs.com have obtained pics from the event and the legal letter. http://www.wrestlingfigs.com/inner2.php?id=8788&page_id=1 — [reported by Mike Aldren]
