RYBACK UPDATE, HOGAN ON WHO HE PRAYED WOULD WIN THE MONDAY WAR, HEYMAN TALKS 20 YEARS OF EXTREME ANNIVERSARY AND MORE WWE NEWS

The second episode of the Monday Night War aired on the WWE Network last night, focusing on the NWO and Hulk Hogan's heel turn. A third episode will air tonight on the Network. The first two episodes are also up in the VOD section already. I thought the first episode was especially good.

Speaking of the show, USA Today featured an interview with Hulk Hogan where he claims he "prayed" Vince McMahon wouldn't lose the Monday Night War because he never wanted WWE to go out of business, but wanted two major places for wrestlers to go and make money. You can read it at this link.

Hogan also appeared on a FOX Sports Network podcast talking WWE, his career and more at this link.

There was a reference made by Adam Rose to Ryback being out with an injury last night on Main Event during a segment with Curtis Axel. The word backstage last night was he would be back by late September.

The WWE website featured an interview with Paul Heyman about today being the 20th anniversary of Shane Douglas declaring the ECW championship a World title after winning and throwing down the NWA title at this link.

IGN.com featured a review of WWE Studios' Leprechaun: Origins at this link.
