Internet Spoilers Upset
Vince was said to be very
angry about leaks regarding his new “son” on Monday Night Raw.
So angry, in fact, both he and Daddy’s little girl Stephanie, gave a
lecture to the WWE creative team about it and scrambled to be super secretive
about the ending. Source: Daniel
Pena, www.rajah.com. I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but did anyone really
care who Vince’s supposed son was going to be.
I watched the show because I do WWE recaps for this site.
Not because I cared one way or the other about this absurd story line.
WWE Releases Sandman!
Has WWE gone crazy?
I couldn’t believe they pulled Sandman from ECW and put him on Monday
Night Raw. Sandman IS extreme, as
in Extreme Championship Wrestling. Sandman’s page was immediately pulled from
the WWE site. It is rumored the release had been “expected” Sandman was
noticeably limping last Monday on Raw. We’ll
be watching to see where he goes from here and will keep you posted. WWE might
as well flush ECW down the toilet now and get it over with. Source:
WWE.com Rumor has it WWE believed Congress wouldn’t “approve” of
Sandman’s character. You had a
list of 11 employees you could have terminated for using Signature Pharmacy and
THEY are still employed.
Sandman Speaks Regarding
Via his MySpace web page,
Sandman is telling his fans not to blame WWE for his release.
He wishes to return to WWE. He is unable to appear at any events until
October 12, however, he has information set up for bookings after that date.
You can get to Sandman’s
MySpace site here:
Sandman asks his fans not
to do anything harmful to the WWE. Don’t
worry, Sandman, WWE is doing all the harm that can be done to them by their own
actions – or lack thereof.
BTW, we hear there is a
fake Sandman roaming the MySpace area. Sandman
can only be booked by Todd Gordon. The link is here:

Vince has no one to blame
but Vince. ECW had a 1.4 rating on
Sci-Fi this week. Source: PWInsider.
That tends to happen when you take away all the talent and use the show to boost
your other shows. By the time I fast forward through all the Monday and Friday
Night Been There, Seen That garbage, you don't leave us much to enjoy.
Award For the Dumbest
WWE issued a press release
naming Hornswoggle as Vince’s illegitimate son. I kid you not.

WWE Wants YOU
Stephanie McMahon is
pushing WWE recruitment at the high school and college level. Source: Keelan Balderson, www.wrestlingtruth.com.
The WWE could offer scholarships and other perks in order to snag your
sons and daughters and send them into an already controversial hornet’s nest
of drugs and early deaths.
And It May Be For
Something Other Than Sports Entertainment
Dallas Mavericks owner,
Mark Cuban, wants to snuggle up with WWE in the MMA business. Cuban is forming
his own Mixed Martial Arts promotion and has approached the McMahon group.
Shane is said to be pro MMA while Vince isn’t so eager to take MMA on.
After all, it is a r e a l sport. Source:
Ryan Gray, www.twnpnews.com.
JR tells us he is in
negotiations with WWE to continue his employment with the organization.
He also tells us that Sabu does not appear to be a candidate for the WWE
Hall of Fame and he believes Sabu doesn’t care about that one bit…
A side note from the
writer: Sabu may not care, but
Sabu's FANS care! He most certainly IS Hall of Fame material…JR tells us the
Rock has moved on from wrestling – like we didn’t already know that – and
there will be no future Rock matches. JR also explains that a King Booker
(Booker T) has not resigned from WWE and this is only a rumor. Source: Steve
Bill Goldberg Talks WWE
Bill Goldberg was
interviewed on a Texas Radio station. He
told everyone returning to WWE was out of the question – he wouldn’t put
another penny in Vince McMahon’s pocket.
When asked about TNA, he stated that TNA doesn’t have it together and
they have no idea what people want to see.
He was not impressed with the hiring of Adam “Pacman” Jones.
He also discussed the deaths of Curt Henning and Brian Adams.

Shane and Stephanie to
Take Over WWE When Vince Steps Down
No dates are given but the
rumors are that Shane and Steph will take over the WWE when Vince decides to
retire. And who did they think WE
would think would be taking over when Daddy leaves the company?
A non McMahon? I don’t think so!
It is reported that Vince
called a Board of Directors meeting to address which foreign territories WWE
should be looking toward since they aren’t doing so well in the USA these
days. Areas being considered are
the UK, Canada, Asian and Mexico. Source: 4FWonline.com. The first thought that crossed my mind was that perhaps those
other countries won’t demand drug testing.
Remember Rosey, the
Matt “Rosey” Anaoi is
training at Ohio Valley Wrestling in Louisville, KY this week. No word yet on
whether he has been signed by WWE or if they are just taking a look before they
make a decision. Former ECW wrestle
Christian York was training at OVW as well. Source: PW Insider

At a recent Smackdown/ECW

Chavo Guerrero and referee Scott Armstrong were two people who received text
messages from Chris Benoit shortly before he took his own life. The WWE crew

Now that Sensational Sherri can be added to the list of early deaths attributed
to drugs, this isn't going away.

Pennington Gap, VA to interview Buff Bagwell about death and drugs in pro
wrestling. Source: Ryan Gray,

Simon Dean is Missed
Mike Bucci “Simon Dean”
was a hands on type of guy when working with WWE’s developmental personnel.
It is reported he took phone calls from them anytime, anywhere and worked
hard to keep them informed and content. That
isn’t happening since Bucci was terminated.

WWE Diva Search, TMZ notes the tryouts are hot gals with little or no talent.
I’m not sure I would go that far TMZ.
Divas can always use their WWE diva status to work their way into the
