Former WWE Diva Michelle McCool has finally broken her silence on the taboo topic of her marriage to The Undertaker. In collaboration with MichelleMcCool.net, the four-time champion candidly addresses her relationship with “The Deadman” in a video blog that will be released this summer. A teaser has been released where she appears to respond to critics attributing her lofty position in WWE to her influential partner rather than her ability to perform.
Obviously Wrestlemania 1 was a success, and thus Wrestlemania 30 for 30 continues with our review of Wrestlemania 2 – What The World Is Coming To… a show that took place from three different arenas on the same day with three different main events. It is also a show that was a great example of what NOT to do and a show where – many mistakes were made, and the WWF definitely learned their lesson. We’ll talk the matches, the celebs, and the build-up PLUS MORE!

“What If?” is a weekly column where I discuss the “what ifs” of women’s wrestling that could’ve/would’ve/should’ve happened, from championship reigns to returns/debuts to storyline options.
This week’s What If is:
Beth Phoenix had never broken her jaw?
Beth Phoenix made her WWE debut when she attacked Mickie James after Mickie had just defended her Women’s Championship against Maria and went after Trish and her shoulder injury. In the coming weeks, Beth continued to go after Mickie, eventually leading to the fans finding out that Beth and Mickie had bad history with each other and Beth becoming Trish’s new friend and RAW’s newest diva. Beth Phoenix won her first WWE match when she teamed up with Torrie Wilson to defeat Victoria and Candice Michelle.

Regular host Jack E. Jones and Guest co-host President Clinton welcomed “The Last Wrestler” George South to IYH Wrestling Radio for another three-hour marathon interview.
Highlights included the following:
Why are there no more good heels in wrestling?
“Well, you know, the worst thing I think that has happened is most heels or bad guys think if they just go out and cuss somebody that’s going to get heat. I always tell guys that most of the fans are getting cussed out at their jobs, they’re getting cussed out at home by their husband or wife, if they come to the matches the last thing they want to do is get cussed out. What’s missing is you really don’t have many heels left to pass on that knowledge of pulling the hair or having a little gimmick in your tights or something; it’s a lost art. The biggest thing now that I think is it’s hard to tell who the heels are and who the babyfaces are. It goes all the way back to the way I was trained; that the heel’s number one job is to get the babyface over. That’s where you run into a brick wall with your heels; they think it’s the other way around. They don’t have a clue that they’re there to get that babyface over.”

It was a terrible episode of “Raw” last night, with only the six-man elimination match between Team Hell No and John Cena versus The Shield and the closing segment featuring Triple H and Brock Lesnar worth praising.
Everything just seemed off about the show, from the camera work to the announcers to the stumbling promos, and it seemed like the crowd was completely dead until Daniel Bryan and The Shield picked up the pace in the elimination match and brought it to its feet.

Recap courtesy of LordsofPain.net writer Michael Bluth:
FOX Sports South has posted a new article looking at DDP‘s work helping Jake “The Snake” Roberts resurrect his health and career.
“’This is it. If you don’t get it done, you’re going to die,’” Roberts told himself before moving into DDP’s Accountability crib. “I mean, when you want to die, you can shut yourself down to that point. There’s no doubt in my mind I could do that to myself to die. Give up.”
