Today in gaming history saw the release of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007), Mario Clock (2009), Toy Story 3: The Game (2010), Final Fantasy IX on PSN (2010)

Today in Pro Wrestling history, in 2009 Donald Trump “purchased” Monday Night Raw from Vince McMahon. Yeah, it is stupid even now. Vince sold it to Trump after he made “an offer I couldn’t refuse”. The crowd wasn’t having it at all, booing the entire segment. He then announced Raw would be presented commercial free for the first time ever the following week. that got them on his side. USA Network even issued a fake press release about the sale (why do they do this? Remember the other day when Vince “died”? Why didn’t they learn…oh yeah this was the year before). The following week was terrible, with Trump appearing and horrible skits instead of commercials and Vince kayfabe buying Raw back for double what he paid. Sigh…sometimes being a wrestling fan is hard.
