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


Chris Jericho vs. Roddy Piper, Jimmy Snuka, and Ricky Steamboat match at WrestleMania 25 will now become a Handicap Elimination Match where Jericho will have to eliminate all three WWE legends in order to score the victory.  

As for the legends , if just one of them pins Jericho at any time, the match will be over.

My, Oh My , What a night. Tributes, promos, a much needed push for Big Show and superstars vanishing into thin air.

Well it looks like Legacy finally met the full rage of Vince, Shane, and Hunter in one foul swoop and man was it sweet.Now here is what happened after the camera stopped rolling. The McMahon's and Triple H continued their beat down on Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase. Both Orton and DiBiase eventually managed to escape through the crowd leaving Rhodes behind yet again to receive the full wrath of it .Thankfully Hunter took some pity on him and laid him out with a blow form his sledge hammer.

Moving on to the 18 diva battle royal , the only thing that comes to mind is WTH? Santino in a mankini? I swear I was blinded for the next five minutes (shudder) and missed the whole thing, I have said it before and I will say it again. there is something not right with that boy, a few roo's loose in the top paddock.

Wasn’t it great to see Jericho lock in his famous submission again?

It sure didn't take Lawler very long to tap out


Two new matches announced for this week.

Mark Henry and Kane vs. Christian and Finlay.

Battle of the Bellas.

Superstars , Diva’s and Icons

Shawn Michaels has given an interview to the Orlando Sentinel where he talks about WrestleMania, The Undertaker, Ric Flair, and performing in his home town.
Here are some highlights

“You’ve been one of the main stars at WrestleMania for so many years – you’re Mr. WrestleMania.  Does it ever get old for you or is it special every year?”

“You know – it does.  It gets more special every year especially since my comeback.  Every year I get out there and think it can’t get any better than this and then the next year it seems to.  Again, this is another situation after doing this for so many years, you often think that – not that you’ve done it all but how is it going to be more special or more exciting the next time?  It somehow happens. “

“The Undertaker and myself have never faced each other at WrestleMania.  We’ve two guys that have been a part of this organization for 20 years and we’ve somehow managed to stay separated.  I think that’s an amazing thing.”

“Since this is wrestling and we kind of know how retirements go on most occasions, did you ever think Ric was going to come back and have another match?”

“I don’t know.  That was something – put it this way.  We all know, if you’re a friend of Ric Flair which I am, you know him and you know how he is about this line of work.  So, I know that might be a struggle for him.  And that’s OK.  You can’t be somebody’s friend and put requirements on it and I don’t do that to him and I wouldn’t do it to him”
