There is a very good chance that we only have five more months of seeing CM Punk, as his contract with WWE expires in July of this year. The former heavyweight champion has openly talked about leaving the company on his own terms, so it will take some convincing from management to get him to sign a new deal.
Kharma has been focusing much more on her health than she has at any point during her professional wrestling career, as the former TNA knockout is now doing the yoga program created by Diamond Dallas Page. She has lost a considerable amount of weight since leaving WWE.
Thanks to the help of John Cena and his BodyChange program, Vickie Guerrero has been improving her health and losing weight. The WWE diva has lost approximately a dozen pounds over the last month, and she is still going strong with the program.
Michael Cole and JBL, who are close friends outside of WWE, are doing a weight loss challenge together. JBL, who currently weighs 278 pounds, wants to lose approximately 50 pounds this year. They plan on climbing a mountain together afterwards.
While the rest of the company is on an overseas tour of Australia, China and South Africa, former heavyweight champion CM Punk is staying behind here in the United States. He was at the Chicago Cubs game last night, singing the seventh inning stretch song.
Wrestle-1, the new promotion founded by the Great Muta, is about to get an influx of talent from TNA for an upcoming live event in March. Austin Aries, Abyss, Bobby Roode, Brutus Magnus, Christopher Daniels, Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, Frankie Kazarian, Gail Kim, Madison Rayne and Samoa Joe have been confirmed for the trip.
"I would say the best person - because it was the best match-up - would be Samoa Joe. Usually you pick people that are retired and been out of the business for a while. Not for me - it's the guys that made you. Joe was a big part of that, so I would love it to be Joe but I don't know who it's going to be yet."
