After this week's TVs, the entire WWE roster will go to Los Angeles for Summerslam promotion and a number of events where the company will hobnob with the entertainment community.

Stars Earn Stripes on NBC, featuring Eve Torres, debuts tonight at 8 PM.

Dolph Ziggler was interviewed today by The Los Angeles Times discussing the PPV and his showdown with Chris Jericho. He says his dream match would have been against Shawn Michaels in his prime. Regarding comparisons to Curt Hennig, Ziggler commented, "Any comparison to a WWE legend or someone I've looked up to is really cool, but make no mistake about it, my ego is too big to want to be a really good replica of someone else! It's unfortunate that if you're really good at your job, you are constantly compared to legends of the past. I am not trying to be the next ANYONE, I am going to be the FIRST Dolph Ziggler! Follow that!"

Chris Jericho commented on the release of Abraham Washington when asked by a fan about in on Twitter. Jericho responded, "It’s a drag. But it’s not the attitude era anymore."

Speaking of Jericho, he and his band Fozzy will be signing on 8/27 at Collector's Realm in Poughkeepsie, NY at 5:30 PM. With purchase of the CD, the entire band will sign it and Jericho will sign one additional item. There is a VIP package for $30 which also includes front of the line access and a photo with the band in front of a professional backdrop. For more details, visit
