The Rumor Mill (April 12-13)

Celeste WinchesterSenior Analyst IApril 12, 2009

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

The Draft

Rumor has it that Matt Hardy will be drafted to RAW.
His brother Jeff will be staying in SmackDown.
Maryse is rumored to be drafted to RAW.
Melina is rumored to be heading to SmackDown. 
Candice Michelle is also penciled in for SmackDown.
Maria is rumored to be drafted to RAW.
I am pretty sure we will be seeing a supplemental draft this year.

Superstars, Divas, and Icons


CM Punk attended the Golden Gods Awards; the show will be aired on MTV2 on May 2.


JBL is said to be joining Vyper Fight League as a host of the show.
He will be joining the VFL at its inaugural event, "Enter the Vypers Pit," on April 24 at 4400 Shepherdsville Rd., Louisville, Ky.

I guess they offered him a sweeter deal than WWE had in store for him, pretty rude if you ask me, what a sell out.

Nikki Bella

Nikki Bella has updated her blog it looks like the sisters will be reunited after all
“Hola to my WWE Universe
I know it's been awhile, but I had been very busy on the road to Wrestlemania. And WOW what an amazing Wrestlemania that was! Can we say Undertaker and HBK's match! MY GOODNESS AMAZING! :)
"Forgiveness is the scent that the ROSE leaves on the HEEL that crushes it." -John Arnoh
Now I wanted to talk to you all about what's been going on with Brie and I, and I want to apologize to you all and her, as I already did, for my actions. If you check out the new WWE Mobile, I apologize to Brie and she accepts my apology. She truly is strong.

Well that certainly puts my mind at ease and leaves me all warm and fuzzy.

How about you?

Jim Ross has updated his blog
In it, he speaks of the Undertaker and Shawn Michaels

“The Undertaker is still scheduled to travel on the upcoming European tour after his "near miss" at WM25 in the instant classic versus Shawn Michaels. I would easily surmise that both future HOF'ers will be considerably sore for several days after laying it all on the line in Reliant Stadium.”

“For the record, there is no official word as to when HBK is going to retire and I also realize on a recent radio interview that Shawn indicated that WM26 'might' be his last one.”

Behind the scenes

Vince must be getting desperate; he recently asked Brooke Hogan to join the company as a Diva but was refused.

Apparently she would much rather resort to pole dancing than join the company.

Now why doesn’t that surprise me?


WWE will release "Greatest Stars of the 90s" DVDs on Tuesday

The DVD features:

Shawn Michaels, Yokozuna, The Rock, Kevin Nash, Owen Hart, Ric Flair, Mick Foley, Hulk Hogan, Triple H, Bret Hart, Lex Luger, Sting, Razor Ramon, Undertaker and Stone Cold.

Also due out on Tuesday, TNA will release "Jeff Jarrett: King of the Mountain."

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