Sean Haire, known as Sean O'Haire in WCW and WWE, reportedly died Monday at age 43. Haire debuted in WCW in 2000, and he was immediately pushed as a future star. He was paired with the Natural Born Thrillers, a group of young, physically gifted wrestlers, and in the year before WCW folded, he won the tag team titles three times. Haire quickly gained attention from fans for both his strength and athleticism. For a wrestler who was billed at 6 feet 6 and 270 pounds, he could move like a cruiserweight, and hit what might be the best-looking Swanton Bomb in the history of the business.

For Rey Mysterio, size really doesn't matter. Listed at 5-foot-4 (and that's generous) and 165 pounds, Mysterio is by far the smallest performer in World Wrestling Entertainment, but that hasn't stopped him from becoming one of the company's biggest stars. In an industry filled with behemoths, Mysterio, who is known for his colorful masks, has won over fans with his innovative and acrobatic moves. The 31-year-old Mysterio, who began his wrestling career in Mexico at 14, was in town earlier this week to promote WWE's No Way Out pay-per-view event, which takes place Sunday at 1st Mariner Arena.

The Money in the Bank pay-per-view has quickly become an event on WWE's events calendar that fans greatly look forward to. What started as a match at WrestleManiabecame a match that could be counted on to consistently provide excitement, if not steal the show on the grandest stage of them all, so much so that it became its own event in 2010. Much like the Royal Rumble, Money in the Bank is a speciality match with something important at stake and happens only once a year. Unlike the Royal Rumble, the winners of the Money in the Bank ladder match aren't typically elevated in status by the win in the long term.

If Paramount Pictures is searching for the perfect new summer blockbuster, they may want to take a look at "The Curious Case of Alberto Del Rio. " After failing to defeat Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship at Money in the Bank, many believed -- and several hoped -- Del Rio's time in the title picture had come to a close. Randy Orton was returning from injury, bringing back another legitimate main event star and filling a void at the top of the card. But WWE showed it wasn't quite done with the Del Rio experiment yet. Del Rio defeated Rey Mysterio soundly, earned a rematch for the world title and declared he was above the competition and wouldn't compete until his next world title match at SummerSlam.

The best part about RAW this week was the in-ring competition. Between Dolph Ziggler-Sheamus, Antonio Cesaro-Kofi Kingston (ignoring the unfortunate "boring" chants), the four-way tag-team match and even John Cena-Big Show (which wasn't by any means horrible), RAW provided a decent evening of wrestling. Many of these matches also had room to breathe, which in my opinion has been the best part of a three-hour RAW. Even if you don't choose to watch all three hours, you will have the opportunity to watch longer matches on WWE's flagship program.

WWE has a tendency of tearing down people in front of their hometown crowds. It's almost as if what started as a bad joke has now become canon and must be incorporated. Need to take someone down a notch? Wait until they're in front of a hometown crowd. Tonight, on Raw, it was General Manager AJ Lee's turn, as she was forced to resign from her position amidst "allegations" she fraternized with a member of the roster. There has been very little build to the removal of Lee from the post.

This Sunday at TNA's Bound For Glory pay-per-view event, tag champs Christopher Daniels and Kazarian will defend in a triple threat match against AJ Styles & Kurt Angle, and Chavo Guerrero Jr. & Hernandez. "The Fallen Angel" -- approaching 20 years in the pro wrestling game -- has had a very interesting road in the business. My colleague Jimi Kee and I had a chance to speak with Daniels: I know you have a busy weekend ahead, so let's get right into it. I'm actually packing for this weekend you're talking about, sir. It is a busy weekend and I appreciate your forthrightness, so let's get to it!

Both the WWE and World Heavyweight champions walked out of Sunday's Night of Champions pay-per-view with their titles in tow. Sheamus cleanly put away his rival Alberto Del Rio, while CM Punk retained his title after a controversial double-pin with John Cena. But as Paul Heyman was quick to point out on tonight's Raw, in a situation like that, the champion is to be declared the winner. Both challengers, though, laid claim to another shot at the title, so General Manager AJ Lee put all four men in a tag team match that she said could have ramifications on who could possibly get a rematch.

In recent years, the debate on whether WWE superstars should be classified as "wrestlers" or "entertainers" has raged on across television, social media and casual conversation. At times, it's been used as part of storylines, with performers like CM Punk and Chris Jericho mocking the use of the words "sports entertainment. " But on tonight's Raw, fans saw the semantics at play in a different manner. Look at the careers of Shawn Michaels, who was being recognized in his hometown of San Antonio, and Brock Lesnar and there's a world of difference.
