According to Prowrestling.net, the “work-shoot” angle that has been CM Punk’s recent challenge for the WWE Title has taken various twists and turns thanks to WWE.com. First, Punk’s bio was removed from the Superstars roster page. Then, WWE.com noted that, despite Punk’s “suspension,” he’d made good on his promise to appear at various live events. I am very happy (maybe even proud) that we all got past the “whoa, is this real?” scuttlebutt (this ain’t 1996, folks) and moved onto liking this angle for what it is: A) Punk’s chance to shine and B) WWE allowing the curtain to be pulled back a little on that idiotic daughter and doofus son-in-law. (And C) a chance to mention Colt Cabana on national television again, which is probably good, since his new Web show ain’t gonna pay the bills.)
Also according to Prowrestling.net, both Sean Waltman and JBL have posted video blogs praising Punk’s promo on Monday Night Raw. Waltman has posted some fun, breezy videos on Facebook (check it out here), and over the years, JBL is proving himself to be less of a complete prick and more like Old Biff from “Back to the Future,” that uncle or family friend you love to hate and who probably really does know it all but doesn’t always need to give you a noogie to prove it (check out JBL’s Facebook page here).
Finally, according to Prowrestling.net, Linda Bollea accused ex-husband Hulk Hogan of abusing her throughout their marriage, saying she would ask him what was for dinner, and he would wag his finger at her, punch her three times, give her the big boot and legdrop her off the countertop. Hahaha, nooo, no, that’s not really what she said. Linda said Hulk was always on drugs and throwing chairs and that she feared for her life. Whoa. That’s harsh. I’d rather take the legdrop. This, of course, is all to promote her new book, “Wrestling With the Hulk,” which was released yesterday. Hopefully she also released the location of her hairdresser and tanning salon, because WOOF, you’ve got a cosmetic lawsuit on your hands, Big Bird! -Eric
