– During this afternoon’s WrestleMania XXX press conference at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City, Eve Torres and Kelly Kelly revealed four of the six past WWE Divas scheduled to take part in the 25-Diva Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXV. The four Divas announced for the battle royal are Torrie Wilson, Victoria, Molly Holly and Sunny. As a result, three spots are left in the match.
– Inside sources feel that WrestleMania 25 has not generated the usual mainstream publicity because longtime promoter Bob Collins is no longer with the company. Collins worked with the local media in the hosted cities for the event to generate publicity.
John Saboor resigned as President of the Central Florida Sports Commission last year to replace Collins as the VP of Special Events. Saboor was instrumental in convincing Vince McMahon to bring WrestleMania 24 to Orlando.
There has not been negative feedback about Saboor’s performance, but rather that Collins is missed after working with the company for over two decades. The company’s excuse for the lack of media coverage is that Houston is not a major market and there is no celebrity appearance like in the past with Donald Trump and Floyd Mayweather.
