[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 [email protected]

[WWE News] HERALD EXCLUSIVE: SPOILERS for major Smackdown angle – A couple of weeks back on Smackdown Victoria Crawford, a former model, debuted as the wedding planner for Edge and Vickie Guerrero. I am told that the plan as of now is for Edge to get caught cheating on Vickie with Crawford. This will lead to their relationship ending and Vickie turning face. I was also told that this is the role that WWE wanted Krystal Marshall to play but she refused and was released. They didn’t have plans for her to be the wedding planner but as Edge’s secret lover. The twist with that angle though would have been it also tying into the Teddy Long/Krystal affair as well. Instead the wedding was broken up by Teddy having a heart attack. Krystal never came back on TV and was released just weeks later.. [reported by www.wrestlingherald.com]
