- As noted earlier today on WrestleView by Ben Bauer, Chris Candido went into surgery earlier this morning to have pins and screws placed inside his ankle. Candido shattered both his tibia and fibula at the Lockdown PPV last night in the opening match when he tagged with Lance Hoyt against Apolo & Sonny Siaki. Candido came down on his ankle in an awkward fashion after taking a dropkick from Siaki, causing the injury. Although nothing has been confirmed regarding Candido's recovery, he was overheard saying he wanted to be back in the ring in six to eight weeks (which naturally doesn't sound possible to many). More will be known about the length of his recovery very soon.

- The feeling among many backstage at the Lockdown PPV last night in Orlando was that it was only a matter of time before Matt Hardy would be debuting for the company very soon. We will have more on this later today.
