Hi, people and welcome to another episode of the Rumor Mill.
Let’s get started, shall we?

WrestleMania 25

A stipulation to the tag team unification match at WrestleMania 25 has been added.
Theodore Long announced that the unification title match will be a lumberjack match.

ECW Recap

Well, we certainly did not see the hour-long Diva show on ECW; that’s not to say that we won't see it in the future.

It was great to see Swagger in the ring again and even greater to see the show of respect that Evan Bourne showed Tommy Dreamer at the end of their successful win over Swagger and Tyson Kidd by screaming out "ECW!"




Mr. Kennedy has been touring in England to promote WrestleMania and his movie.

Ken talks about his frank discussions with Vince McMahon over his character, where he was told "don’t be so funny" and never to piledrive Undertaker again.

On the subject of steroids, the star explains why he fell foul of the WWE's Wellness Policy shortly after saying he didn’t take them in our last chat.

He then explains just how "vigorous" the company are over testing for banned substances, including having an independent official watching their wrestlers give urine samples on an almost weekly basis.


John Cena

In a recent interview today with The Boston Herald, John Cena gave his opinion on Alex Rodriguez's steroid use, saying “He should go to jail.”

On the diva front

Stephanie McMahon

Despite the DDT that Orton executed on her, she managed to defend herself from injury.

Injury updates

Ric Flair needed staples in his scalp after the attack on him from Jericho on this last RAW

Behind the scenes

Jim Ross came to the defense of Lawler for not intervening in the brutal attack Flair suffered at the hands of Jericho.

“I am surprised that Jerry Lawler didn’t intervene but King has so much respect for Flair that Lawler knew that if he did intervene on Ric’s behalf that Flair would have likely been offended.

"It’s this thing called pride that so many of the old-school guys have and that the younger generation in wrestling still doesn’t get yet.”
