She’s your biggest fan and your harshest critic. She’s there for you when you need it — and even when you don’t. She’s the one who puts up with all your nonsense, she supports you in everything you do and she encourages you to follow your dreams.
Chris Jericho discussed Fandango‘s character during an interview with Hooked on Wrestling:
“I think probably when I did Dancing with the Stars Vince probably watched it and thought all the dancers looked gay and thought they’d make a great heel. This is his his new pet project. He loves it. He’s rolled with it from the start and now it’s getting over to a degree- I don’t know if he’s more over or the song is over, but at least there’s a reaction.
A personal tale about my viewing of Barbed Wire City
“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”
David Dexter reports that former WWE creative member Court Bauer said in a recent podcast that he believes WWE will regret the Rock’s latest run with the company. Bauer spoke with Steven Muehlhausen at Between The Ropes and said that the Rock’s run from 2011 to WrestleMania 29 didn’t help anyone.
Bauer said, “I think everyone’s going to look back and have a lot of regrets about this partnership. I don’t think John Cena is anymore over for quote unquote being endorsed by The Rock at all. I don’t think the creative and the booking was at any point really great with The Rock. From day one in 2011 to the last few weeks going into WrestleMania, there was no sparkling great moment ever.”
“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:
What if Mickie James had did the original “Obsessed Fan” storyline with Lita?
Mickie James has revealed in various interviews that she had originally pitched to do the obsessed fan storyline with Lita. In the end, it was decided that Mickie was going to do the storyline with Trish instead of Lita. Mickie’s obsessed fan storyline with Trish was a success! Mickie played the role of the Psycho diva well during her times of being for and against Trish. Trish did well in her role as the freaked out idol that eventually became tired of dealing with Mickie’s psychotic tendencies.
David Dexter reports that the WWE has announced that the May 27th episode of RAW will be Bret Hart Appreciation Night. Both Hart and Shawn Michaels are expected to make appearances that night. RAW will be live from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
HBK gets his own appreciation night on May 24 at a RAW-brand live event in Salt Lake City, Utah. WWE is trying to boost their live events due to the injury of John Cena and absence of CM Punk.

The refined gentlemen in the WWEClassics.com office have been rewatching old WCW shows as a profession for years and we’ve stumbled upon more than a few dopey moments we can’t believe we missed the first time around. Everyone remembers when David Arquette won the WCW Title, but what about the night Scott Steiner set attack dogs on Sting? Or that time Hulk Hogan got into an endlessly quotable confrontation with The Wall, who just happened to be standing on the top of a hotel a mile away from The Hulkster?

Ok, we have this DVD called “The Montreal Theory”. It takes a very deep, detailed, serious investigative look at everything leading up to the infamous Montreal Screwjob in 1997 involving Bret Hart, Vince McMahon, Shawn Michaels, and Earl Hebner. In it, we present to you evidence, debate, and discussion about the possibility that Bret was secretly in on what happened in Montreal and that those events were, on some level, privately predetermined and planned between Bret, Vince, and possibly a few others, with everyone else kept completely in the dark.
