Our daily news reporter has
gotten so good at bringing us headlines and breaking news, the news you see here
will be updates and in depth coverage of certain stories.
And the fans are being
treated like it never happened. WWE
still wants us to believe that these men were out of action due to injuries –
pre planned by WWE writers before they were sent off on their suspensions – or
that they were suspended for something other than being on the Signature
Pharmacy client list. To all those wrestlers who do not take steroids or other
illegal substances, if you don’t get major pushes from WWE, you need to be
somewhere else. King Booker is
still out and we have not seen Chris Masters or Chavo Guerrero since the
I’m still miffed that
Randy Orton can walk through the entire mess unscathed. Not only does he get a
free pass, he’s getting a very much undeserved major push, but…
Since getting busted for
steroids or drugs doesn’t appear to be a major concern for a money making
star, we wonder what will happen to the two Ohio Valley wrestlers who recently
failed drug tests and were busted – one for cocaine and one for marijuana.
Will they be shown the door?
The latest rumors making
their way across the Internet tell us that The Undertaker has indeed broken up
with Sarah and that he is now seeing WWE diva Michelle McCool which is why the
Sarah tattoo was airbrushed from his latest photos.
The Press Done to Tommy Dreamer?
Reporters must be upsetting
Dreamer. He tells them to “go to
hell” in his latest column posted on www.wwe.com/shows/ecw.
Dreamer has dropped his Diary of Violence column and replaced it with An
Original Thought. Not to upset
Dreamer, but I didn’t know any WWE employee could speak to the press without
the express approval of WWE’s corporate office. You can carry on all you wish
about extreme wrestling but WWE’s version of Extreme Championship Wrestling
doesn’t even come close to the original ECW and you know it Mr. “ECW
Return Will Be Pay Per View
I won’t be seeing
Edge’s return but some of you fans may be purchasing the Survivor Series.
It seems WWE is holding off bringing Edge back into action when you have
to pay to see him. WWE likes to do that with their superstars. Source: www.angrymarks.com.
I like Edge, but I’m not spending bucks just to see him get back in the ring.
Vs. Vincent Kennedy McMahon
Ric and McMahon had a
meeting this week in what everyone speculates was Ric’s return to the ring. By
all reports, Ric brought along his attorneys and you know how McMahon hates
those attorneys – especially if they are representing the other side.
It is also being hinted that McMahon loaned Ric a large sum of money to
assist him with his IRS problems. Source:
Michaels May Not Return to Ring Action
It is being reported that
in spite of Triple H’s best efforts to lure the Heartbreak Kid back into the
ring, Shawn has been enjoying life since his knee surgery and spending time with
his family. Source: www.wrestling-edge.com
Shawn isn’t interested in a full time schedule and that could be a deal killer
Is Out of Action
On Monday Night Raw, John
Cena suffered a torn pectoral muscle. He
has already undergone surgery and you can see a video from the surgery at
wwe.com. Estimates for his time out
of action range from six months to eight months to a year.
We wish John a speedy recovery. I want to know if it is in a WWE
employee’s contract to have videos or photos of their surgeries splashed
across the Internet or shown on one of WWE’s weekly television spots.
Jericho’s Possible Return
Jericho may be back in WWE
as early as No Mercy. It was
earlier reported that Jericho was in talks with WWE and TNA but WWE won out.
TNA must have done something wrong since Jericho lives close to the
Orlando iMPACT Zone studio.
Last week’s Smackdown did
a 2.5 cable rating versus the 2.7 from the previous week.
This week’s Raw did a 3.2
cable rating, down from last week’s rating of 3.3.
This week’s ECW cable
rating came in at a 1.2 versus the 1.1 from last week. Source: ProWrestlingFans.
I saw the show and don’t quite understand the jump, however, it could have
been fans wanting to know more about John Cena’s reported injury.
Kurt Angle, current TNA,
former WWE and Olympic, wrestler was arrested last week for driving under the
influence of alcohol. Like it or not, no one is immune when it comes to drunk
driving and Kurt is lucky he didn’t hurt someone. A vehicle he nearly hit
reported his bad behavior and he got caught.
He failed a field sobriety test and refused a blood test. He was formally
charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Controlled Substance and
Reckless Driving. Kurt, your face is on television every week, more so lately
than most of the TNA wrestlers. You know you are well known and you should also
be aware of the affects of alcohol on your body. It is not in the least bit
unmanly to ask for a ride home or to call a cab and beats an arrest – or worse
– every time.
Kurt had been scheduled to
be interviewed on “Between the Ropes” but that was cancelled after word of
the arrest leaked out. It is being
surmised TNA was unaware of the arrest since they promoted the interview just
hours before it was then cancelled.
And there’s more:
Kurt’s attorneys issued a statement declaring their client innocent and
that he was targeted due to his celebrity status. Source: ProWrestlingFans.
Attorneys for Kurt state that this incident occurred in the afternoon –
I don’t know what THAT has to do with anything – and that the police have no
blood alcohol level content – no joke, legal eagles, Kurt refused the blood
test – and that the police have no first hand knowledge that Kurt was driving
his vehicle. Do tell us, Kurt –
was the vehicle on autopilot?
Mr. Kenney and William
Regal never did drugs and Kurt Angle doesn’t drink.
Will what works for WWE now work for TNA?
Hogan Back Signs With
NBC as host of a revival
version of “American Gladiators”. I
don’t mind pushing Hogan but it appears that his son Nick, and his son’s
injured friend, John Graziano, have fallen off the radar. If anyone has an
update on John’s medical status or Nick’s legal status, please contact the
The Rock Says
Actions speak louder than
words and to prove it, he and his ex-wife have donated one million dollars to
the University of Miami to the football facilities renovation fund. Both Dwayne
Johnson and Dany Garcia Johnson graduated from the University of Miami.
