— Shane Douglas was telling people at a wrestling convention this past weekend that he rejected WWE’s offer to be an announcer for ECW.

— WWE Hall of Fame “Superstar” Billy Graham was hospitalized on Monday evening after falling in his hotel room. Apparently, the bathroom was too small for a man of his size, and Graham tried to catch himself by grabbing onto the sink in the bathroom but the sink came off the wall. As a result, Graham took a bad fall and was bleeding. Graham was released from the hospital after X-rays were taken. You can see some photos from the ordeal at this link.

— Bret Hart’s book, Hitman: My Real Life In The Cartoon World Of Wrestling, is scheduled for an October release in the United States. Also, the paperback edition will be released in Canada in June. Several months ago, Hart had talks with WWE about releasing the book under their banner, but the main hold-up was with them wanting Hart to edit about 400 of the 500 pages in the book. Hart ended up rejecting the offer.

— Speaking of Harts, Bret’s lovable brother Owen would have turned 43 years old today.
