This is according to TVTome.com, which I visited due to a referal from TheCubsFan:
-Smackdown's aired 259 episodes since the first show on August 26th, 1999. And yes, that number does include the Smackdown pilot on April 26th of that year. -RAW's aired 592 episodes since the first show on January 11, 1993. Excludes RAW X special, but does include Thursday RAW Thursday. -Sunday Night Heat is at 287, Velocity is at 115. -SummerSlam will be the 166th PPV event. Of those 15 were UK-only events. So, SummerSlam is the 151st PPV available worldwide. Hurrah.

Pujols bless TVTome. What would I do without it when I need to check info on a Degrassi: Next Gen episode or see how far into the sixth season of DS9 the Dominion did whatever wacky deed I "need" to research.
Also fun is IMDB, which gives "real names" for all the performers ever to show up on Raw, Smackdown, or whatever brand show is your pleasure. I put "real names" in quotes since IMDB always hovers at about 95% reliable, and I never knew that Steve Austin and Rob Van Damn were the actual names of the performers. Perhaps the site is better used to reflect on all the guys that have ever popped onto each show along with the technical credits (road agents listed along side Creed and Finger Eleven is kind of amusing.)
"long story cut short, there were no plans made for RVD to be part of WM XIX" I believe they were going to break him up with Kane (Kane accidentally chokeslams RVD at No Way Out, etc) then changed their minds about it.
