Matt Hardy

Matt Hardy has stated that he feels like he is the top superstar now after defeating his brother Jeff at WrestleMania:

"If the 'Extreme Enigma' could have held on a little longer with the 'Starmaker,' we would have undoubtedly been the show-stealing match and Undertaker-HBK wouldn't have stood a chance."

Kurt Angle
In a recent interview with the Philadelphia inquirer Angle admitted to being suspended from WWE for steroid use.

"Have I used steroids before? Yes, I have, after I broke my neck and lost three inches in this arm and 21/2 in the other from loss of circulation," says the wrestler, who has battled through a number of serious neck injuries.

"But I paid the price, both financially—I got fined $125,000—and reputation-wise," he says. "I was a pure athlete, an Olympic champion. And all of a sudden, I'm like Kurt Angle the cheater? It really sucked.”

JR has updated his blog again. In it he talks about what the WWE now expects from the commentators. He states that it’s all about telling the story. He also came under attack for the remark he made about Rey Mysterio's entrance regarding Heath Ledger's Joker character.

"The old school play by play role is considered obsolete in WWE these days as the broadcasters are more story tellers than play by play people or color commentators,"

Ross said on

"I look at this repositioning as a challenge and one that I look forward to refining."

“What all this means as it relates to where the announcers will be going come Draft day on Monday on Raw is anyone's guess,"  

"I personally have no preference of brands but I would be really surprised if I returned to Raw."
