He also gave us as much information as he could about the legal situation between World Wrestling Entertainment and the American Wrestling Association. Dan Masters chimed in and answered the question regarding the whereabouts of Adam Windsor. Click here to listen.

WWE’s SmackDown/ECW crew will be at the Amway Arena in Orlando, FL, tonight. Advertised: Vladimir Kozlov versus the Undertaker. Bell time is 6:45 PM.

WWE results from the November 3 edition of RAW, from the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, FL: Matt & Jeff Hardy over Brian Kendrick & MVP, with Ezekiel; William Regal won an eight-man battle royal to earn a match for the WWE Inter-Continental Heavyweight Title on the November 10 RAW broadcast – order of elimination was Ted DiBiase, Jr., by Regal, Shad by DiBiase, Jr., JTG by DiBiase, Jr., Jamie Noble by Regal, Manu by Regal, Cody Rhodes by Regal, Snitsky by Rhodes and DiBiase, Jr.; Vladimir Kozlov over Charlie Haas, as Bret Hart; Shawn Michaels & Triple H over John Morrison & the Miz; in an sixteen-woman tag team match, Beth Phoenix, Natalya, Katie Lea, Victoria, Lena, Maryse, Layla & Jillian over Mae Young, Michelle McCool, Mickie James, Candice Michelle, Eve Torres, Tiffany, Brie Bella & Kelly Kelly when Phoenix pinned Young; CM Punk over Randy Orton by disqualification when DiBiase, Jr., attacked Punk; the Undertaker over JBL; Mark Henry & Kane, with Tony Atlas, over Rey Mysterio & Kofi Kingston; and Chris Jericho over Batista to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title in a cage match.

This was billed as the 800th episode, although it was really number 806. Many clips were shown throughout the night of past episodes, including the debut, Razor Ramon, Shane McMahon announcing he owns WCW, presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama, DX invading WCW, Hulk Hogan and the Rock, Floyd Mayweather and Big Show, Jeff Hardy’s ladder match with the Undertaker, Ric Flair farewell, and Kane abruptly halting the wedding of Edge and Lita. Mike Adamle quit as General Manager. Orton kicked DiBiase, Jr., in the head for ending his match with Punk, and said he was trying to kick some sense into him. There was a goofy dance segment that took place in the ring that included Kung Funaki, Hornswoggle, the Boogeyman, Jim Duggan, Golddust, Sgt. Slaughter, Lillian, Jesse, Festus, and even Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler getting into the mix. The Great Khali turned babyface by attacking Kane. Jericho will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Title against John Cena at Survivor Series.
