Superstars, Divas and Icons

Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho and his wife, Jessica Lee Lockhart, were seen at the Los Angeles premiere of “Anvil! The Story Of Anvil.”

Makes for a pleasant change to him being spotted with his wife instead of his mistress, Kelly Kelly.


Victoria has updated her MySpace blog; she talks about the rumors surrounding her regarding TNA and about WrestleMania

Here are some highlights:

“I ran into a couple former WWE employees there. Bruce Prichard and Dan Stevenson, who were behind the scenes guys.

"Dan is now with TNA. He introduced me to Dixie Carter and her husband. I don’t know if she’s supposed to have a tough businesswoman image. But I’m gonna shatter that. She was super nice.

"It’s always weird to me when a tidbit of my personal life becomes wrestling gossip, because someone saw Dixie and I talking, and now “I may be going to TNA.” I’d be lying if I said it never crossed my mind, but they haven’t come to me with anything, and I am really focused on my MMA.’

“Finally, Wreslemania XXV was a fun time. It was great to see a lot of old friends. The Diva Battle Royal wasn’t exactly the tribute to 25 years of women’s wrestling that I was hoping it would be.”

The Rock has made a comment to Cena’s challenges. The Great One stated:

“John’s perspective is very interesting to me. It’s borderline laughable. But can I just say that I wish him the best of luck with his movie career and everything else he does.”
On Steve Austin being inducted, he said:

"I was very happy about Steve Austin being inducted into the Hall Of Fame. Steve and I are good friends.”

Aww damn it. Now I am starting to feel all guilty about the last article I wrote about him.
