Hi, people, and welcome to another episode of the Rumor Mill.
Let’s get started, shall we?
There are still not enough Divas to make up the 25 Diva Battle Royal.
On that note, can somebody please explain to me what made Santino even think that if he beat Mickie James, he would be included in the Battle Royal? I swear that man is about one sandwich short of the picnic basket.
Well, well, well, what a show. The unification Tag team championship is heating up nicely.
And who could forget HBK ‘s tribute to The Undertaker? What a stunning performance although I am still trying to get my head around HBK being pure.
Looks like more controversy is surrounding Jericho again. In a recent interview with TMZ.com
When asked, "You're a wrestler, so do you think you have better abs than Barack Obama?", Jericho responded, "As of right now I have better abs ... but pretty soon he's gonna take 65 percent of my abs away from me and give 'em to somebody else."
Jericho also stated "I will force Mickey Rourke to apologize for what he said," Jericho said in wrestling promo mode. "And if he doesn't apologize, I will keep slapping him and slapping him until he humbles himself."
Way to go, Jericho, you slap him silly.
Dreamer has updated his blog in which he speaks about the importance of Wrestlemania.
Here are some snippets.
1. The History
“Growing up in the early 80s being a wrestling fan I found myself to a small group of people, maybe even considered an outsider. I took a lot of teasing from other kids for loving wrestling so much, but once the first Wrestlemania came to MSG everyone became a fan.”
2. The return of Fan Axcess
“This is the greatest way as a fan to meet some of their favorites. This is also a way as a WWE Superstar to meet their fans. I love doing autographs and just mingling with the people who all share a common joy as I still do.”

Cena also gave another interview with the Star Telegram.com
5 Questions with John Cena:
1.The whole "game-playing" aspect of 12 Rounds is very intriguing.
“It’s an action movie, but it’s a very intelligent action movie.”
2. I’ve read that you seemed destined for performing since you were four years old but that wrestling came as an accident. How did those things converge?
”I was always a ham growing up, and my dad was a huge wrestling fan. Me and my brothers, when we’d roughhouse, we’d have little toy belts that we’d compete for"
3. So when you gave it a try, what was the biggest culture shock?
“There really was nothing. I’ve had a lot of success with the WWE, but I grew up very poor. So as far as having to drive 500 miles to work in front of a crowd of 13 people for five bucks, that wasn’t any surprise to me."
4. Your favorite music is classic rock—but you’re a rapper.
“Yeah, I actually listen to a lot of country-western as well. I can’t play an instrument, and I can’t sing. But I’ve always been half-quick-witted and decent with words, and I do love music.”
5. Do you see your movie career continuing in action, or would you follow a path similar to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who has gone from action to comedy and family films?
“I certainly would like to stick with action, only because everyone else doesn’t. A lot of these movies that I do, everybody’s looking for 'Where’s the next guy? Where’s the next action guy?”
On the Diva front
Wasn’t it great to see the queen of submissions make herself known to both Barbie dolls? I can hardly wait for the next match: Gail & Maria vs. Michelle and Maryse next Friday.
Let the fur fly and the plastic melt.
