– Yesterday was seven-time World Heavyweight Champion Bret Hart’s birthday. The Hitman turned 52 years old. WWE referee Charles Robinson turned 45 years old.
– In a first, a wrestling act was featured on NBC’s America’s Got Talent this past week. Midwest-based indy wrestlers Steve Boz and Austin Roberts performed some sort of wrestling act alongside model Koa-Marie Turner on Wednesday’s edition of the talent show. Unfortunately, their performance did not go over too well with the audience as well as judges Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and David Hasselhoff. You can see video of their appearance at the following link.
– Paul London recently filmed one of those “hidden camera” commercials for Pizza Hut, according to his official website, Paul-London.net. Friends of the former WWE star say he is trying to get into acting and is picking and choosing his wrestling dates.
– Former WWE Diva Torrie Wilson was interviewed by Kevin Eck of The Baltimore Sun to discuss her second place finish in NBC’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here and she had some interesting things to say regarding World Wrestling Entertainment. Highlights from the interview are as follows:
Whether having a snake on her face was worse than kissing Vince McMahon: “Oh, making out with Vince, for sure [laughs]. I’ll take the snake any day.”
Embarrassed over taking part in the Miss WrestleMania Battle Royal: “I’m very mad at myself and embarrassed that I agreed to be a part of something like that. A lot of people in the audience didn’t even know that I was in that match because they didn’t even announce it. For me, that whole experience at WrestleMania was kind of like closure. I feel like maybe I’m not appreciated like I would have hoped. They just wanted all these girls there. Now I can understand why Trish [Stratus] decided not to do it; she was smart. Going into it I trusted them that they would use me in the right way and I should have known better. All in all, I learned a valuable lesson.”
Whether she thinks she’s done with professional wrestling: “I do. I just didn’t appreciate that experience and I felt very unappreciated after all of the years that I put in for them. You combine that with the fact that I asked them to do a little thing on wwe.com to “vote for Torrie” and they just ignored me. So, my feelings are hurt.”
