— WWE will be taping two episodes of Raw on February 4, 2007 in Austin, Texas. The next night will be a regular SmackDown/ECW taping in Corpus Christi. However, they will be taping the next week’s editions of SmackDown and ECW on a Wednesday night in Houston. The reason for this unusual taping schedule is because all three brands are going on an international tour from 2/9 to 2/14 and they’re not taping any shows overseas.

The Orlando Sentinal has an article with Ron Simmons at this link. He talks about his catchphrase “Damn!”, winning the WCW World Title, WWE’s tour of Iraq, and more.

— Last week’s edition of SmackDown finished with a final 2.7 broadcast rating.
