Steve Austin Movie Trailer, SmackDown Viewership Up, Matt Hardy-ROH

– Matt Hardy announced today via Twitter that he had been “invited” to attend Saturday’s night’s Ring of Honor iPPV from Chicago Ridge, IL. He tweeted on Monday:

“I WILL be at @RingOfHonor’s PPV, I’ll be doing a signing & have FULL access to the locker room & talent. Extremely interested in 1 match..”

– The official trailer has been released for Steve Austin and Steven Seagal’s new DVD/Blu-Ray action movie “Maximum Conviction”, which is available on November 6th and now on sale at
