[Birthdays & Anniversaries] Today In Memoriam: Bull Curry (71, 1985) and the Black Shadow (82, 2007). .. [reported by Rich Tate of www.GeorgiaWrestlingHistory.com]
[WWE News] In a huge snafu during the VH1 Countdown show which aired over the weekend, Big Show mentioned that he will be facing Edge and John Cena in a three way for the title at Wrestlemania. Obviously that was the rumored direction but WWE hasn’t officially announced it. With all the leaks this past week including the Raw script and the Divas battle royal I imagine there will be some rewrites as Vince is on a mission to stop storylines getting out on the Internet. Stephanie has even been going as far as to feed false information to certain members of the creative team she suspects might be leaking stories. All the writers are now using company laptops with special software that tracks their emails and which websites they view. On a semi-related note, Ryan Braddock is now doing a gimmick in FCW where he watches matches and is always tapping away on his laptop at ringside. I can’t see that one lasting long with the mood Vince is said to be in right now. . [reported by Mike Aldren]
