– WWE have revealed on that they are going to be having a midget division (that is right, no you are not seeing things and it’s not April Fools Day either).

The Juniors Are Coming!
Oct. 15, 2005

In an unprecedented collaboration, network executive Palmer Canon and SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long announced today the introduction of a new WWE wrestling division exclusive to Friday Night SmackDown: The Juniors.

The Juniors Division will be comprised of world-class athletes at or below 5 feet tall. “Midgets, dwarves, the little people; they’re all welcome,” said Long. “We don’t discriminate against anybody on my show, as long as they can bring it.”

“The network believes there’s big ratings and big excitement in the new Juniors Division,” Canon added. “I think fans will be shocked at what these tiny, but very talented, competitors can add to the already incredibly gifted roster here on Friday Night SmackDown.”

– WWE released a press statement yesterday that said that tickets for next years Wrestlemania in Chicago, sold out in “two minutes”, although this does not include the Internet pre sale tickets.

– Since Matt Hardy lost the Loser Leaves RAW Match at “The Homecoming” we have not seen him on WWE TV, but that will change this week when he appears on The Peep Show on Smackdown this coming week.
