[Book News] It’s been wrestling’s big secret up until now, but Online World of Wrestling had obtained exclusive news that Bruno Lauer, known professionally as Downtown Bruno or Harvey Wippleman (WWF), has published his hilariously entertaining biography, entitled “Wrestling with the Truth” though Scott Teal’s Crowbar Press (www.crowbarpress.com). The book will be launched at this week’s Cauliflower Ally Club reunion but will be available to the public through 1wrestlinglegends.com starting next Friday. I had the honor of being one of the proof readers for this book and I am thrilled to endorse the book and proclaim that Bruno’s story will open your eyes to the world of pro-wrestling and make you laugh out loud. Stay tuned to Online World of Wrestling for more information.

[Question] Does anyone know who the “fans” were on the 5/22 and 5/29 episodes of TNA iMPACT who got their (sweet) asses kicked by TNA Knockout’s champion Amazing Kong? I’m fully aware of this week’s offering, Daffney, as well as the other finalists, Amber O’Neal and Becky Bayless. I also saw Shantelle Taylor raising her hand in the audience. – I’m just wondering who the original two victims were. They MUST have been trained wrestlers to take that kind of punishment. Email me at oww@onlineworldofwrestling.com if you have the answer(s). — ANSWER: Leva Bates (5/22) and Mimi (5/29) were the others who did the recent Impact tapings against Kong. Mimi is a Team 3-D trainee.

[Notes] From April Hunter: “I have spinal injuries from wrestling. Some days I can’t walk, others aren’t as bad. I’ve been in therapy for a year and the bills are REALLLLY adding up. I had insurance, but they dropped me when they found out I was a wrestler, so I’m paying everything out of pocket, which is sucking ass. Someone suggested I might be able to supplement my income doing this. I know I need an updated MRI ($1200.00 and $2000.00) worth of VAX treatments, asap, that I don’t have. And (hard to believe, right?), not a single promoter has offered to do that token “benefit show” so I’m on my own with this.” – Send donations via PayPal to comments@aprilhunter.com
