    -- Sheamus will defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Alberto Del Rio on May 20 at Over the Limit. The Mexican grappler's victory over Sheamus on the April 6 SmackDown guaranteed him a future World Heavyweight Championship Match.

    Other matches scheduled for the event include John Cena vs. John Laurinaitis and WWE Champion CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan.

    -- Today marks the ten year anniversary of "WWE." On May 5, 2002, Vince McMahon's sports entertainment organization launched a "Get The F Out" marketing campaign and changed all references on its website from "WWF" to "WWE," while switching the URL from WWF.com to WWE.com. The next day, a press release was issued announcing the official name change from World Wrestling Federation Entertainment, Inc. to World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., or WWE, and the change was publicized later that evening during Raw.

    The name change stemmed from an abbreviation dispute with the World Wide Fund for Nature. In 2000, the environmental organization sued the World Wrestling Federation for unfair trade practices, claiming the wrestling company had violated a 1994 agreement regarding international use of the WWF initials. On August 10, 2001, an English court ruled in favor of the World Wide Fund for Nature.

    -- WWE referee Chad Patton turns 36 years old today.
