According to reports from PWInsider.com, the WWE on-demand service known as WWE Classics On Demand will be discontinued on January 1st, 2012. The service launched over seven years ago and it has featured many classic videos and events from the WWE video library. However, the WWE website is still advertising the service for January featuring a “rebels of wrestling” theme.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR FANS WITH VERIZON FiOS
If you are a Verizon FIOS subscriber who loves Ring of Honor, you need to take action NOW to make sure you will be able to continue to watch all of ROH’s great wrestling action.
We believe that FIOS will stop carrying television stations carrying Ring of Honor after December 31st. Although we have tried very hard to get a deal done with Verizon, Verizon is refusing to pay what we believe is a fair rate for the right to carry our stations. Verizon FIOS apparently thinks that its subscribers won’t care if they no longer carry our great programming – apparently they aren’t wrestling fans! – and perhaps the only thing that will change their mind is hearing from their customers.
We know you are a wrestling fan and if you are also a FIOS subscriber we strongly encourage you to call them at 1-800-VERIZON (1-800-837-4966) to let them know you will cancel your subscription if they stop carrying our stations and Ring of Honor.
We also ask that you contact as many of your family and friends as possible and ask them to contact Verizon as well. By doing this you may influence Verizon to act more reasonably and continue to carry ROH plus all of our other great programming that we are sure you enjoy watching.
Thank you for your help.

Current UFC Ring Girl Brittany Palmer will be posing for the March 2012 edition of the world famous Playboy Magazine. This will be the third time a UFC Ring Girl has posed for the magazine as both Rachelle Lean and Arianny Celeste have done spreads in the past. Brittany Palmer came to the UFC after the WEC folded last year and returned to her duties at UFC 140 after a brief hiatus from the company.
It is expected that she will be on the cover of the issue, but no formal announcement has been made by any parties as of this writing.
