- Of course, the biggest story of the week is Edge's retirement. You can read all about that here.
- Anyone else catch that quick segment on Raw hyping up Awesome Kong's debut (or whatever they'll end up calling her)? If they chose the idea of her holding a blonde doll as a reference to King Kong, then much applause. If that's just a coincidence, then they got lucky as hell.
- Speaking of divas, one of the BELLA TWINS is the champ now? Lame.
- Speaking of people being in title situations that make no sense, R-TRUTH is in the main event of Extreme Rules? WTF is going on right now?
- Supposedly the idea of using the vignettes for Sin Cara and Awesome Kong is a product of Triple H wanting to have the fans anticipate a debut. I have HHH as a target quite often on this site, but I'll admit, the guy seems to have really good ideas when it comes to the company itself. The only thing I'm ever really critical of him for is his win/loss record (and sometimes match performance, but that's the same for everyone) though when it comes to company concepts, it looks like Paul knows what he's doing and I'm excited about that. I'd love to see Jim Ross take charge of recruitment again as well.
- The Wrestling Observer says that Rima Fakih not only gets eliminated from Tough Enough (and thus, doesn't win) but that she was pretty troublesome in the house with drinking and badmouthing Donald Trump. Frankly, I'm glad to hear that, as I don't think she deserves to win Tough Enough.
- Goldust may be retiring soon and taking on an agent role. I think it's a good idea.
- Val Venis spoke out about John Morrison and Melina - the same stuff we've heard before, about how Morrison doesn't stand up for himself and ditch Melina who sleeps around a lot even while dating him. Of course, not being backstage, we can only report on the stuff they're saying, but like I had said before, we hear this so often that it's more than likely true. If it is true, I really hope Morrison figures out what to do to fix that cause he's throwing away his main event spot if he continues doing the same things that are keeping him at the level he's at now.
- Hogan would like to bring Randy Savage into TNA. Why? They already have Jay Lethal.
