Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3
- Don't forget to vote on the latest group of matches for the hottest divas & knockouts tournament!
- Brian Jossie aka Abraham Washington (aka AW) has been released from WWE because of the Kobe Bryant comment. He then went on Twitter and talked about how it's ridiculous that they have no attitude anymore and they're just playing it safe. I agree. Now, the rape joke is insensitive, but it's insensitive ENTERTAINMENT. It's not like WWE was doing a pro-rape sponsorship ad, it was just a heel saying something to get a boo. Overreaction because of Linda's campaign, which should not be a priority over your product for anyone but Linda.
- JTG expressed his concerns with only being paid $2000 for the WrestleMania weekend and his frustrations about being used in the company. Some say he might be trying to get fired, others say that's not the case. That's too small of an amount of money I would think for an entire week, so I understand his plight for that.
- Rosa Mendes was arrested for public intoxication, leading to the hash tag #FreeRosa
- Maria Kanellis has been talking trash about Kelly Kelly - Kenny Dykstra thinks it's about CM Punk.
- WWE Saturday Morning Slam is going to be a show directed towards kids, having one match and wasting a bunch of other time. Ugh.
- Possible backstage altercation between Ryback and Brock Lesnar? Total bullshit rumor?
