Stephanie McMahon revealed on Twitter that she has a new jet plane. The belief is that WWE purchased the new vehicle for her because she will be attending events more frequently in the role of brand ambassador. Triple H and Vince McMahon will more than likely travel together to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown each week.
Since WWE stars had to travel through pretty rough weather this past winter, Vince McMahon is leaning towards doing more house shows on the west coast during the months of October through January, as the conditions on that side of the country are not nearly as harsh.
Travel isn't an easy thing. Since America Airlines lost their luggage, Natalya Neidhart and Tyson Kidd have no clothes to wear, so the WWE couple has no choice but to wear their ring gear in the hotel room. Natalya posted the hilarious picture on Twitter.
One of the perks and hassles of being a WWE performer is that you get to visit a lot of cities across the world. Xavier Woods is taking advantage of that opportunity now that he is on the main roster. He is currently on a mission to visit a local video game store in every city that he travels to.
"I knew AJ Lee from developmental a year before she was on NXT. I didn't know Dolph Ziggler at all. But when we started working together and traveling to different shows we realized that we shared a similar sense of humor. It didn't take us long to realize that it was kind of an odd pairing but it worked. We had a lot of fun and it is something that I'll always remember. I learned a lot from Dolph when I was ringside for all of the John Cena matches at house shows. It was a positive way for me to start my career."

Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards made their TNA debut on Impact Wrestling last week, and word coming from backstage is that each of them has been signed to a one year contract. The former ROH stars are expected to travel with the company for a tour of England soon.
A group of people in Pittsburgh have put together the time and effort required to erect a statue of wrestling legend Bruno Sammartino, but the owners of the land where the old Civic Arena stands are against the idea and have placed a stoppage on those particular plans.
"Everything just went so quiet, it was a sellout, can you imagine that, here I am, wrestling my hero, the champ, and I end up winning the belt, one, two, three, a knee drop of the top, and I say, "where is the belt?" Finally, he raises my hand and he says, go back to the dressing room; you'll get the belt back there. They were afraid of a riot. I didn't pick up on it, but I did notice the people were very, very quiet. You could hear a pin drop, because they couldn't believe that Bruno got defeated after what, seven years? As far as Bruno was concerned, a lot of people don't realize, but those rings up there in New York are the boxing rings, the four ropes and a lot more stable base on the ring and not as much spring on the ring. Consequently us wrestlers, taking big back drops and suplexes on that, it ends up taking a toll on the body a lot more, so I really believe that Bruno needed the time off maybe surgery, maybe just get some rest. You know, I can imagine wrestling nearly every night and the pressure is on you because you're the champion and you have to draw money, so it was the whole idea that Bruno didn't mind the situation that much, because he wanted time off any way."
Bruno Sammartino bashed Vince McMahon and WWE during an interview with the Baltimore Sun. The wrestling legend cited the fact that the company did not take care of other legends as well as they should have. Sammartino even brought up how much more Mike Tyson was paid than the wrestlers.
