They rate strategy, mat skills, strength, speed, agility, sportsmanship, and aerials. In the case of Extreme Expose, they rated them together as a whole and gave them an 8 in strategy, a 6 in mat skills, a 5 in strength, a 4 in speed, an 8 in agility, an 8 in sportsmanship, and a 1 in aerials. Other notable ratings include a 3 for Bobby Lashley’s charisma, a 5 for Khali’s mat skills, a 2 for Kristal’s mat skills, Funaki getting a 9 in charisma, Mike Knox getting a 5 in charisma, a 7 for John Cena’s mat skills, Daivari getting a 4 in mat skills, Val Venis getting a 5 in mat skills, and Jamie Noble getting a 6 in mat skills.

— There is an ad for the “500th Anniversary Issue” of WWE Magazine in the issue with CM Punk on it. It is scheduled to be released on October 23rd. It was originally scheduled to be released in the middle of July, but just before the magazine was about to go to the printers, the Benoit stuff unfolded. The magazine featured items on Chris Benoit, and the printing of the magazine had to be delayed to remove the Benoit references.
