The latest storyline firing on SmackDown is Vickie Guerrero, after she teamed with Drew McIntyre on last night’s show to lose to Edge and Kelly Kelly. Vickie’s career was on the line, as announced by Teddy Long.


Shawn Michaels was interviewed by this week and talked about WrestleMania 27, the WWE Hall of Fame and more. Shawn said that as of now, he’s not aware of plans for him to be involved in the Triple H vs. Undertaker at WrestleMania and feels the match doesn’t need him. Shawn said:

“I’ve heard all the rumors. As of right now, I’m doing one thing and one thing only at WrestleMania, and that’s the Hall of Fame.

I don’t think The Undertaker and Triple H need Shawn Michaels to deliver a spectacular match or make this incredibly interesting. Those two can do that on their own. Right now, as far as I’m concerned, I’m going to be there watching it like everyone else.”

Shawn said he hasn’t decided yet who will induct him into the Hall of Fame this year but mentioned names like Triple H, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Sean Waltman and others. Shawn said it’s a decision he will have to make pretty quick.


WWE’s website is now listing Triple H vs. The Undertaker as a match for WrestleMania 27. While the match preview does talk about Taker’s streak, nowhere is it mentioned about Triple H retiring. Of course stipulations are expected to be added between now and WrestleMania.


Chris Jericho recently spoke with Slam Wrestling and here are some of the highlights:

Triple H taking over WWE:
“He’s going to take over the company. This isn’t the year 2000 anymore where he was trying to bury me. Nobody wants to be Bruce Hart, where he takes over Stampede Wrestling and goes out of business two years later after his father had it for 40 years.”

Returning to WWE:
“It could be two days down the road. I’m still a huge fan of the business. When it’s time to go back, I’ll go back.”

Favoring a PG-13 product:
“I think I did better in the PG-13 environment. It’s easier to get pops when you say, ‘ass.’ they’re going ‘tee-hee-hee, he said a swear word.’ I wasn’t really doing any swearing. I just go with the flow. If I have to do an X-rated environment, I’ll do that. And if it’s PG, I’ll do that.”


Former WWE Diva Candice Michelle, who announced on Valentine’s Day that she was expecting her second child, disclosed Tuesday night on her Facebook account that she suffered a miscarriage Sunday. 

Here is her post: 

Hello CandiAddicts 

I always love posting positive things as that’s the focus in my life. However life brings about unexpected things and I feel being a public figure it’s my duty to share. On Sunday I suffered a miscarriage! I have both physically and mentally been through a lot of trauma! I have seen the Doc and there must have been a genetic defect and this angel wouldn’t have been able to survive in the outside world! It’s so difficult to say goodbye yet I know through my FAITH that there is a reason for everything! “With Faith there is no Fear!” 

If anyone out there has ever gone through this you know the difficulty in this! I humbly ask for your respect in letting me keep this matter private beyond this mention! I love you guys and appreciate you respecting my family’s privacy in this matter! 

“It’s not about how many times you get knocked off the horse but how GRACEFULLY you get back up!” 

What a beautiful saying! The best thing for me right now is all the prayers! I have received many txts, tweets, and messages of support and I really appreciate them! They have truly uplifted me in this time of need! 

Remember to be grateful for what you have! 

I have decided to keep my appearance this weekend in Miami and have gotten clearance from the doc to fly! I would really enjoy seeing you CandiAddicts out there at Wizard World! I’ll be walking the red carpet sat morn and there sat and sun! 

God bless you all and thank you for your love and support! 

Candice Michelle


Former WWE Diva Jillian Hall announced this evening on Twitter that she's pregnant. 

"it's time to announce what I have been asked repeatedly lately... Yes, I am prenant!! @endofthesunMike and I are very happy!!!" she wrote. "that would be pregnant not prenant! lol."


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with another blog, which you can read in its entirety at Here are some highlights of what JR wrote about: 

Sin Cara Signing With WWE: "The wrestler formerly known as Mistico but now known as Sin Cara was officially welcomed into the WWE family on Thursday in Mexico City with every major Mexico City TV network and print media represented" 

"I applaud the way that WWE introduced Sin Cara to the WWE Universe as he will arrive in WWE after a few weeks of advanced TV promotion already meaning 'something' and feeling much more significant than other newcomers. For those that aren't familiar with Sin Cara, formerly known as Mistico, I suggest that you go on You Tube and check out some of his bouts. Very innovative offensive performer along the lines of the great Rey Mysterio" 

"Sin Cara has a magnificent opportunity to become a global star in WWE. The final verdict, as always, will be rendered by the paying customers based on how well the gifted athlete delivers inside the squared circle. It will be interesting to see what brand, Raw or Smackdown, gets the opportunity to showcase Sin Cara." 

Michael Cole a Jerk In Real Life: "Emailer...Is Michael Cole's TV persona more like his real life persona than when he played the straight man/corporate announcer? I'd probably say, yes. Cole's is not the laid back, easy going guy in real life that he portrayed early in his announcing career. He has taken to being a 'jerk' on TV like our sauce to ribs. " 

Sting Back In TNA: "That Sting vs. Undertaker WM27 match that many just knew was going to happen at WM27 looks a little 'iffy.' Seriously, I said many times that I did not think that Sting would likely venture into WWE at this point in his career. All people have 'comfort zones,' including yours truly, that we are reluctant to leave. In hindsight, at least in my view, more often than not and especially for veterans the 'comfort zone' thing isn't a negative."


No new matches for WrestleMania 27 and the SmackDown brand were announced on last night’s show but they did further the Cody Rhodes vs. Rey Mysterio storyline. Dusty Rhodes returned to WWE TV and helped his son attack Mysterio.

KELLY KELLY TALKS ABOUT BEING ALL NATURAL, WWE IS NOT FAKE? features a new tongue-in-cheek interview with WWE Diva Kelly Kelly to promote the upcoming show there. The interviewer noted that she learned to refer to WWE as “sports entertainment” and not “wrestling”, and that their performers are “Divas” and “Superstars”, not wrestlers. Here are the highlights:

WWE officials keeping up on her appearance:
“Every week one of my bosses comes up to me and goes, “Lemme see your nails.” He gets so mad if they’re not done! Every week I have to be on it. If I break one, I have to get it fixed. But I keep ‘em short and I keep ‘em real natural, so usually they don’t break. It’s usually me biting ‘em off.”

People saying WWE is fake:
“I just wanna punch people in the face when they say something like that. . . . Luckily, I haven’t been severely injured, but I’ve . . . broken ribs and stuff. It’s not as glamorous as it looks. Still, I love comin’ to work every week.”

Being all natural:
“Oh, it is. I’m not ashamed of it. It’s all real. I love getting that question because I’m like, “Yes they are and I’m so proud.”"

The interviewer then asked Kelly Kelly if other Divas worry about their breast implants exploding in the ring. Kelly didn’t get to answer as the WWE handler who was overseeing the interview ended it abruptly.
