WWE Rumor Mill for April 7-8

Celeste WinchesterSenior Analyst IApril 8, 2009

Hi people, and welcome to another episode of the Rumor Mill.
Sorry this is late, studies have kept me very busy in the last two days.
Let’s get started, shall we?

Post WrestleMania thoughts

I am not going to bore you all with another article on Wrestlemania.
But here are a few of my thoughts, please feel free to share your thoughts on this as well.

The 25 Diva Battle Royal was a complete disgrace, and I am not talking about the joke of the WWE, Santino, he was just the icing.

There were no themes for any of the Diva’s entrances; no recognition for the old diva’s making an appearance; the whole thing sucked.

It was poorly presented and put the diva movement in WWE back 20 years. It was totally pathetic and disrespectful.

John Cena’s entrance reminded me too much of Eminem. It would have been far more effective if he made his entrance from the sideline

The Hardy brother
s could have tried to put a bit more heart into the match, although it did not disappoint.

The IC match
was pathetic. 21 seconds? C’mon now, and we all knew that JBL was going to quit wrestling so no surprise there.

Let’s hope Rey can give the title the respect it deserves.

The legends match was five out of 10 in my books, although Piper and Ricky Steamboat showed that they still had some moves.

: Was it just me or did we see the same thing happen to Punk last year?

I would like to see a new rule put in place so that you can't win MITB twice in a row, as it stands it's just not fair to the other wrestlers.

What are your thoughts on this?

Orton and Hunter did a remarkable job. Kudos!

Thank God for the Undertaker's match against HBK.

In the immortal words of JR: “Tombstone! Tombstone! Tombstone! I think I just had an out-of-body experience.”

Rumor has it that the cameraman on the receiving end of The Undertaker's suicide dive at WrestleMania XXV was actually Sim Snuka in disguise. No confirmation on this.

Two matches so far:

Edge vs. Cena in a Last Man Standing Match for the World title

Batista, Triple H and Shane McMahon against Randy Orton, Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes for the WWE title

Match rules: if anyone from Triple H's team won the match, he would retain the title, but if Orton or his partners secured the win, then "The Legend Killer" would become the new WWE Champion.

RAW News

Vickie Guerrero is the new RAW GM.

SmackDown News

Theodore Long is the new Smackdown GM.

Possible dark match:
Six-man tag match with John Cena, Triple H, and Jeff Hardy, teaming together to face Randy Orton, Edge, and Matt Hardy.

ECW News

Tiffany takes over as ECW GM.

Carlito, Primo, and Evan Bourne vs. John Morrison, The Miz, and Tyson Kidd.

The Draft
Rumor has it that 30 superstars will be drafted I very much doubt this however, here are my thoughts on the draft:

Cena to SD, Mysterio to SD, Edge RAW, Triple H to RAW.
Jim Ross to RAW, CM Punk to SD, MVP to RAW.
Christian to SD, Big Show to RAW, Kofi Kingston to SD.

Rumor has it that The Undertaker will be taking some time off after the draft.

Superstars Diva’s and Icons

JBL stated that he has retired from professional wrestling.
Furthermore, he has no current plans on doing anything on a professional level with WWE.

John Cena is spending time with kids as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Orton’s ranting, How many more weeks of Orton’s crybaby whining do we have to put up with? It is getting real old real fast.

I don’t think I can stand to hear him complain about Hunter and the sledge hammer at Wrestlemania for the next two or three weeks. Vince you have used this storyline to the max; for the love of God, let it end at Backlash.


Kevin Kelly has stated that he will not be taking Tazz’s spot, although rumors have him replacing Tazz.

Well that’s it for today, stay turned for more rumors, news, and gossip.
