"It’s being said that some WWE officials have recently made contact with Raod Dogg and Billy Gunn in regards to a possible WWE return. Road Dogg was directly approached about the situation, however Road Dogg and Billy Gunn are both still under contract with TNA. If they did in fact come back to the company, there would have to be a penance to pay due to the inflammatory remarks they've made towards Triple H in interviews in the past.

Another idea would to have two younger wrestlers join the Degeneration X group with Triple H and Shawn Michaels to give them a rub like with The Evolution faction. As this point however, the "DX Reunion" set for June will simply consist of Shawn Michaels and Triple H being a tag team. "

Sarah doesn't like wrestling, so i feel theres no point in asking her.
She's a really nice girl and I don't really want to bother her with something she's not interested with.

i hope not either, even though it would help him go across as a heel

Good point.
Also if you remember Edge won last year's MITB match, and he won the WWE title in February. Cena became a fan favourite again. So maybe McMahon came up with idea for Egde to win giving Cena back his popularity for a few weeks, more $$$ for McMahon in Cena merchandise.

............... Oh, so other people can have boards like, ''flush JBL down the toilet'' and ''you suck'' and ''F - U'', but oh, wait, you can't have anti - Cena signs because he's a ''goody'' or it will hurt his feelings.

WWE can be a joke sometimes!





























( But I still love wrestling! )

Pro Wrestling Torch Newsletter: Both Chris Benoit and JBL will be removed from TV for at least the new few weeks to recover from some nagging injuries. WWE has already put forth plans for SmackDown this week to write both off TV so their absence is explained.

In the case of Chris Benoit, one WWE wrestler had the following to say about WWE giving him time off to heal up: "He's been sore for a long time, and it's probably best for him to get proper rest and away from the grind of the road. For the good of Chris and really, in the big picture, the company, he needs time off."

As reported earlier, Benoit stated in an interview with The Sun in the UK recently that he has yet to sign a new contract with WWE.

thats the right thing to do. About Cena maybe you're right because Vince's nowadays only concern is $$$.

Maybe they're lacking real competition... like in those WCW years...

Slightly off topic but also on topic. I caught a glimpse of what could have been a hall of fame induction programme a few weeks back. There was some mexican guy who used to roll up in a big pimped up car and it seems he has passed away. Who was he and how did he die? Was it a wrestling accident?

That was Eddie Guerrero.
He died of heart failure on November 13th 2005. He was 38.

Thats sad - seemed to love his job.

Is his heart failure linked to wrestling? Do these massive guys pop pills to help with their bulk?

I know that bald guy that smashes beer cans and has a bad leg used to wrestle somewhere else ages ago in a tag team and he was a strip of a bloke. now he is huge. is that all natural hard work or is it accepted that these guys have help?

from Wikipedia:

On the morning of November 13, 2005, Chavo Guerrero checked into a hotel with his uncle, Eddie Guerrero, in Minneapolis where they were both scheduled be a part of a planned WWE RAW and SmackDown! "Supershow". After Eddie missed a wake-up call, security opened his hotel room and Chavo found his uncle unconscious. Chavo attempted CPR, but 38-year-old Eddie was declared dead at the scene. Vickie Guerrero, Eddie's wife, later announced that an autopsy ruled the cause of death to be massive heart failure. Although he had been sober for four years, his past drug and alcohol problems had taken their toll on Guerrero, as had his gruelling wrestling work and WWE schedule.

Eddie died on the day that he had a match for the World Heavyweight Championship. The company held tributes to Guerrero on both RAW and SmackDown during the week following his death. On April 1, 2006 at the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremonies during WrestleMania 22 weekend, Guerrero's wife Vickie accepted his posthumous induction into the WWE Hall of Fame by Rey Mysterio, Chris Benoit and Chavo Guerrero.

Following Guerrero's death, Vince McMahon announced a new drug policy under which performers would be subject to random drug tests by an independent company and would receive regular medical physicals with an emphasis on cardiovascular health.

That's Stone Cold Steve Austin, he does have knee issues aswell as neck and back problems. He has recently taken time out of WWE and is currenlty acting in Hollywood.

John Cena is also a huge guy, but he studied fitness and phisical education and knew how to get big on his own without the use of drugs

Sounds like it can be a bit of a minefield. I can see why a wrestler would be tempted to bulk up artificially just to be a top man and top earner.

WWE Launches ECW As Third Brand

STAMFORD, Conn., May 25, 2006 - World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., today announced the official launch of ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) as a brand extension to its RAW and SmackDown franchises.

After acquiring the ECW assets in 2003, WWE spent the past few years re-introducing ECW to the global WWE audience and increasing the interest in its unique brand of sports entertainment. To date, WWE has successfully released three ECW DVDs, all of which have become best sellers, and produced a very profitable ECW pay-per-view event in June 2005, with another ECW pay-per-view scheduled for this June 11, 2006. With consumer interest at an all-time high, WWE is introducing ECW as a complementary brand to RAW and SmackDown.

After keeping the ECW concept alive and creating an enormous cult-like following for all things ECW from DVDs to PPVs to books, we feel that now the time is right to officially launch ECW as its own stand-alone franchise, said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman. RAW, SmackDown and ECW now represent a portfolio of WWE brands for fans of all ages and interests to enjoy.

Similar to WWE's RAW and SmackDown brands, WWE will produce, market and promote a full line of ECW products from television programs to pay-per-views to live events to licensed consumer goods.

In a related announcement, The SCI FI Channel today announced it would start airing one-hour episodes of a new ECW live television program, debuting June 13 at 10 p.m. ET.

World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: WWE) is an integrated media and entertainment company headquartered in Stamford, Conn., with offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto and London. Additional information on the company can be found at wwe.com and corporate.wwe.com


I think ECW will be on Sky Sports in the UK.
Also where abouts is the London offices?
