- Arda Ocal noted on Twitter that he spoke to Jake “The Snake” Roberts this weekend and the WWE Legend has been sober now for 110 days, the longest he’s ever gone since he was 10 years old. When Jake started Diamond Dallas Page’s DDPYOGA, he was at 305lbs. and he’s now down to almost 230lbs.

- The New York Daily News named CM Punk their “Dude of the Week” for this past week. Punk received the honor for visiting robbery shooting victim Tom Dotterer in a Syracuse, New York hospital. They wrote about Punk:

“For paying a surprise visit. The WWE star invited Tom Dotterer to a wrestling show Sunday, but the 77-year-old was admitted to the hospital for emergency surgery related to a gunshot wound to the eye he suffered in January during a robbery at his liquor store. Dotterer couldn’t make it to the WWE event so Punk (showing he’s hardly one) came to the hospital before the show for some spirit lifting. A letter Dotterer wrote, read by his son during a fund-raiser, showed he was thinking of Punk. Dotterer asked to be forgiven by those he “sarcastically ripped apart or had opinionated exchanges with.”
