Earlier this month, John Cena mentioned the Funkasaurus gimmick during an episode of Monday Night Raw. Brodus Clay was told of that, and he fired back a bit. He stated that the only difference between Cena and PN News is that Cena was given a push. In case you aren't aware, News was a lower card performer in WCW that had a white rapper gimmick during the early 1990s.

Good news if you're a big fan of Booker T. WWE is currently working on a DVD for him, and it should be released some time this year. As is usually the case, many of his best matches, both in this company and in WCW, will be heavily featured. Management is going to try to separate this from the other features by spending some time on his troubled youth. The feeling is that it might become a motivational tool the company can push.
