I would have attached this to an earlier thread of mine about OVW, but I couldn't do so to threads where I had the last reply, so excuse the new thread.
Got some more details now about the OVW "March Mayhem" show that is planned for the beginning of March. It appears the show is a joint OVW/Six Flags show that will be filmed on March 3rd at the Davis Arena. The two-hour show will then air on television March 6th at 10:00 p.m. I was originally under the impression that the show would be shown live from Six Flags on March 6th, but that's what I get for having the sound down on the television when I first saw the ad.
The television ad on the OVW program Saturday night lists a "RAW vs. SMACKDOWN" match between Randy Orton and John Cena, along with a retirement ceremony for Jimmy Valiant. Added to this, according to the OVW website now, is that of special appearances by Damaja (Danny Basham), Doug Basham, Rob Conway, and Matt Morgan. I would suspect that Sean O'Haire will be appearing as well and there's certainly a few other WWE people down here that could pop up as well.
The upside for fans is that the show is free and the seating is great (probably not a bad seat in the house, with the farthest seat being at the most fifty feet away from the ring). The downside: unless you're part of the fanclub, you'll have to wait in line to get in and the place will fill up quickly for a big show like that. I've heard of people arriving early in the morning to get in for other shows like this, so that would probably be the case here.
Anyway, thought I would mention it here for those interested. The OVW site has some more details.

Oh dear God no. This means some wrestler is going to start an issue with the Boogie Woogie Man, causing the Boogie Woogie Man to have to lace up the boots again to defend his honor. On a plus, perhaps this means Paul Jones will break out his #1 suit for the retirement of his bitter adversary.
Dupree would fit well in Orton's role now in the group. But the position they're trying to fill is of that of a big enforcer so they'd need someone in the 6 to 7 foot range that could just manhandle people.
