[Misc News] The Victoria, BC, Times-Colonist put out a one sided story yesterday on the Chris Jericho altercation. The story was later updated and replaced with a more balanced version of events although it claimed Jericho was blocked in his rental car by “hundreds” of people which was not the case. The original story painted Jericho as the aggressor and hinted that his alleged assault on the female fan may have been racially motivated. They said that two of the fans involved — 20-year-old Ashley Levey, and her boyfriend, Kalen Johl, were arrested but later released without charge. The Colonist took down the story a short time later, presumably after talking to the WWE, who gave them the same statement given to TMZ. They said that WWE spokesman Kevin Hennessy told them that it’s up to the police to decide if Jericho did anything wrong. From what I gather no charges are expected to be brought against him and he isn’t in any trouble legally, although professionally I guess that could be another matter depending on what mood Vince is in..

[WSU News] WSU Champion Angel Orsini may be the best womens wrestling champion in all of the world during her reign. Orsini has defended the WSU Championship whereever, whenever and against whoever. The last several matches Orsini has had in WSU, Orsini wrestled with a concussion (that she sustained in the match), a bad back, a deep bruised elbow and with broken fingers. Orsini, who is not exactly a fan-favorite, has seen some fan support due to being a fighting champion, despite her actions to a one Mercedes Martinez. Orsini, battling the flu on 2/7, also battled against the very hungry & determined Kylie Pierce. This was a great one-on-one match, with Pierce handling her own with the champion. No one has beaten Orsini for the WSU Championship for nearly a year, and despite a strong effort from Pierce, that fact remained true.
