WWE sent out an email to ticket holders, noting that Monday’s RAW begins at 6:45PM instead of 7:15 PM. This is so WWE can tape additional footage for the final SmackDown! episode before WrestleMania. As noted earlier here on the website, there will be no SmackDown! tapings next week as WWE talents will begin arriving in Atlanta, GA on Tuesday.
– Today is National Sputnick Monroe Day. In Memphis, TN, and during the day, several proclamations in his honor are going to be read.
– The Memphis Heat documentary will debut tonight, and run this weekend at the Malco Studio on the Square in Memphis, TN and at the Malco Desoto 16 in Southaven, MS.
– The first review of the documentary is up at http://www.gomemphis.com/ Here is an excerpt…“If the movie fails to gain much traction outside “the territory,” it may be because of its episodic nature. For better or worse, documentaries that achieve national recognition — even ones about spelling bees, for example, or education reform — generally contain a (sometimes contrived) narrative arc, in which the triumphs and disappointments of a central figure or set of figures are followed throughout the film, to provide audience identification. (This is one reason why Michael Moore makes himself the “star” of his movies, even if the topics of health care and the invasion of Iraq have nothing to do with him directly.) In this way, “Memphis Heat” is closer to a History Channel documentary about a particular historical event than to the type of nonfiction film that gets accepted at Sundance.”
