Jamie Jones: Takedowns continue for McMahon

Here are the notes and news items from the week in pro wrestling: The news keeps getting worse for Vincent K. McMahon. If falling from the ranks of the billionaire club wasn’t enough, the latest episode of “Raw” notched its lowest rating of the year.

The taped episode in London dropped to fifth among television series and specials behind “The Bachelorette,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “The Voice” and “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.”

• The voice is back. Jim Ross, the legendary WWE announcer, returns to television Monday for a boxing special on Fox Sports 1.

• Triple H is the coverboy for the June 2014 edition of “Muscle & Fitness” magazine.

The Local Corner: Renegade Championship Wrestling is at 8 p.m. Saturdays at 806 Second Ave. in Chatsworth.

Southern Style Pro Wrestling is at 8 p.m. Saturdays at 4484 Highway 411 N., next to Eton Flea Market near the Ferris wheel. Admission is $5 for ages 13 and older and free for children 12 and younger.
