A rather interesting discussion took place between Tammy Sytch and a person that she thought was Jim Ross on social media yesterday. The two of them discussed the rumors about Sytch doing porn. Some of the comments made towards her were rather raunchy, including a sexually suggestive idea that involves barbecue sauce. The real Ross took to his blog earlier today to inform fans that it was a fake account and not words coming from him.

On Monday Night Raw, WWE set forth the story line where Lana was dumped by Rusev, only to fall into the arms of Dolph Ziggler. The two shared a kiss in the middle of the ring that generated a really good reaction from the audience. The reason for adding an interesting story is because the creative department wanted to protect the Russian sympathizer because it will feel like a bit of a drop to go from feuding with John Cena to feuding with anyone else.

During this time of the year, hundreds of athletes try to make their dreams come true by impressing an NFL team enough to earn a roster spot when the season starts in the fall.

A rather disgusting incident took place during the eulogy for Verne Gagne, who passed away late last month. His son Greg Gagne and Mean Gene Okerlund were the two key speakers at the funeral. For whatever reasons, Bob Backlund rushed to the stage, took the microphone and began cutting a heel promo. Many that attended the event said that it was ridiculously out of place and unwarranted. Backlund has received a lot of heat for the incident.

Since the company now has him under contract, the smart move would be to utilize Sting as much as possible to get a return on the investment that WWE spent on him. That is a big reason why a DVD is being discussed at the moment. The WCW legend is expected to be heavily involved with the project, and he is reportedly interested in having a lot of say in how it is presented. Management already has a good amount of footage since they own the library.
