One of the most controversial moments in wrestling took place when Eric Bischoff signed Alundra Blayze away from WWE. Well, it turns out that the former WCW president is still close to his former employee. The two of them were spotted hanging out together in Arizona recently.
While WWE is still mulling over the candidates to induct the Ultimate Warrior into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 30 weekend, CM Punk has revealed that he has asked management for the role. The feeling backstage is that officials are hoping to get Hulk Hogan to do it.
The leading candidate to win the Royal Rumble right now is Batista. WWE is said to want to capitalize on the momentum of his return by throwing him immediately into the main event scene of Wrestlemania 30. A title match against Randy Orton has been heavily discussed backstage.
"Yes, of course. I'm Mexican. I grew up watching him. I saw him several times before he came to WWE or any other company in the US. He wrestled for years and years in Mexico, especially in Ciudad Juarez. I've always admired him. He started from the bottom and at the end of his career he was one of the most amazing, most popular Superstars in the world."
"Everything kinda went downhill very fast. There was an accident that my son was involved in, and a good friend of ours was in the accident with my son. Just the marriage basically crashing and burning. After the show [Hogan Knows Best], I kinda hit rock bottom. Everything got dark, everything happened at once. I was drinking alcohol very heavily. It just all kept piling up, it all kept mounting and mounting and I didn't know how to handle it. I always wondered how could someone possibly take their own life, and so I got to that point where I said, 'You know what, maybe this would be easy. You know, maybe this would be an easy way to fix things.'"
On February 22, OMEGA Championship Wrestling is doing a live event in Smithfield, North Carolina. Matt Hardy and Shane Helms will be headlining the event as a tag team. Gunner, Christian York and Reby Sky have all been announced for the show as well.
Despite the domestic violence incident and the dual restraining order filed against one another last month, it appears that Matt Hardy and Reby Sky are staying together. Both are still facing battery charges from the incident at the motel room during New Year's day.
TMZ is now providing a little more details into the incident between Matt Hardy and Reby Sky at a motel during New Years Eve that led to their arrest. The gossip website is reporting that Reby was upset with Hardy because she thought he had been drinking or under the influences of drugs.
Matt Hardy and Reby Sky were arrested on January 1, and it somehow managed to avoid the media until now. TMZ has picked up on the story and revealed that the two of them were arrested for fighting one another in a motel room in Virginia. Both were charged with assault and battery.
Rumors have been spreading that a breakup has happened between Reby Sky and Matt Hardy because of all the issues that he has been going through lately, but it appears that the model and wrestler is sticking around and trying to help the former WWE rehabilitate his life.
"It's just so frustrating, because they just released something that was completely not what I said. It's pretty clear that Matt's been needing help, and the other day he was in a bad way and I called for help. Cops came, and all these reports are saying that I led them to some secret cave that contained prescription pills. They never found any prescription pills at all in the house, what they found was steroids. After having to go to the police station to sign all these papers, I come back to my house upside down, there is 5 men in my kitchen and I am being interrogated. Everything that they needed to find was already found. So it is just a whole bunch of hate mail: Reby you snitch, you're a rat. At the end of the day I just wanted Matt to get help, I called for Matt to get help, and guess what? He left this morning for WWE sponsored rehab. He is getting help."
