More On Hogan’s Show, Ashley/Strip Club, Nunzio Update

— Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Wrestling will debut on Saturday night, October 18th at 10pm. The series will run for eight, one-hour episodes and feature celebrities being trained to wrestle. Familiar faces from the wrestling industry will make appearances, including Eric Bishoff, Jimmy Hart, Bill Goldberg, Brutus Beefcake, Brian Knobs and Rob Van Dam.

— As we reported a couple weeks ago, an adult venue in Long Island, New York, advertised the appearance of “five gorgeous girls from Playboy” including former WWE Diva Ashley Massaro, for last Wednesday. Ashley has posted a new blog on her MySpace page debunking the advertisement. Apparently it was false advertising on the part of the venue as she claimed she was no where near the strip club, or ever will be. Ashley wrote, “Hey a-holes that said I was appearing at a strip club last week. Dead wrong. I was no where near nor will I ever be, doing a SIGNING and or appearance in a strip club, I actually found it quite funny while I was at home updating my myspace. All of these so called news sites saying I would be there. Apparently tmz even wanted to talk about it. So crazy! So, for anybody that actually went there to see me and didn’t, I apologize for the lack of responsibility on many peoples parts. If I had known about this sooner I could have tried to fix it before anyone went there to see me. But alas I was alerted to it probably the same time as you guys. So anyone who went to that place to see me. Sorry you got duped, I’ll be sure to make another app. soon in NY to make up for that.”

— Former WWE star Nunzio is advertised to return to the JAPW promotion on Friday, September 19 in Beachwood, NJ as well as Saturday, Sept 20 in Jersey City, NJ. He will be going under his real name, James Maritato, on the independent scene.
