- Former ECW Champion Justin Credible has posted a new blog at PWMania.com. This week Credible talks on Darren Young "coming out," Sunday's WWE SummerSlam, Monday's Raw, being 9 months sober, among other topics. Jason Knight is this week's special guest on Justin Credible's Pro Wrestling 101 video series. Here is an extract from "The Justin Credible Report:"

"What a week for the WWE. Summer Slam is in the books, and there is so much to talk about. First leading into the PPV in LA, Darren Young comes out to TMZ that he is gay.

"As you know WWE got a ton of free mainstream press heading into their second biggest PPV of the year. I’m happy for Darren, and I applaud his courage. On the other hand, there is no way that this was just a spur of the moment statement. I have been told that this was carefully thought out, and Darren and the WWE had this planned the whole time. There is just no way that Darren was conveniently asked that specific question and he just happened to decide now is as good a time as any to come out."

- Last night's post-SummerSlam episode of Smackdown saw an 18 percent increase in social media activity compared to last week with a score of 90,883. It is the program's highest figure since July 26. Overall, SmackDown topped Friday night cable television programming for the second consecutive week.
