– At last word, about 9,000 tickets have been sold for Sunday’s WWE Armageddon pay-per-view. The HSBC Arena in Buffalo, New York will be full for the show, but it isn’t expected to sell out.
– ECW Champion Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy, Maria and WWE Tag Team Champions Carlito and Primo appeared in Stamford, CT earlier today helping the U.S. Marines with their Toys for Tots campaign.
– WWE Divas Champion Michelle McCool has a new blog on the WWE Universe site. Once again, she makes note of people saying and writing negative things about her.
“It’s not easy to filter out all the negative things people say and/or write about you,” McCool wrote. “It’s not easy to go down the road less traveled. It’s not easy to always be yourself.”
She also defended herself against people who criticize her in-ring work, saying she’s done everything possible to improve, not to mention that she’s worked very hard to be given the championship opportunity by WWE.
“I love how people so quickly forget that I have been here four years and worked my butt off every single day…pitching storylines, training at DSW, working in the ring, doing appearances, etc.,” McCool said. “Not just that, but in case you forgot – I’m certainly not the only ‘diva search reject’ under contract right now.”
In case you haven’t noticed, McCool doesn’t use the “Wings of Love” finishing maneuver anymore, which is a double underhook facebuster similar to TNA star Awesome Kong’s finisher. According to McCool, she’s not allowed to use the move anymore.
“I haven’t used it in quite some time now, but that’s not by choice,” she said. “Truth is, I’m not allowed to use it anymore. Apparently, it was too devastating for us girls! Seriously.”
However, she has plans to introduce a new finishing maneuver soon.
“The only good thing about that is that I debuted a new one on Maryse this weekend and believe me, I think you’ll be impressed,” McCool said. “I have to keep it under wraps for now until I use it on TV. Hopefully, it’s not too rough for us girls.”
