– ESPN GameNight host Jon Siebel was interviewing fantasy sports expert Matthew about the second half of the baseball season with talk turning to the ESPY Awards (which were held this past Wednesday). During the course of the conversation, Berry said The Iron Sheik attended the pre-ESPY party.
– ChangeTheRecord.net recently conducted an interview with Amy “Lita” Dumas to promote The Luchagors’ upcoming tour of the UK, the pros and cons of the band’s front woman being a former WWE Diva, her band’s next album, and more.
During the course of the interview, Dumas is asked if she was invited to take part in the 25-Diva Battle Royal at WrestleMania 25 and/or why she turned it down. Here is what was said:
Faye: Were you invited to take part in the 25-Diva Battle Royal at WrestleMania 25, this year? If so, why did you turn it down?
Amy: Did you see that match?!
Faye: Yeah, it was so bad!
Amy: Right, that’s why I turned it down. [laughs] I did watch it, though. I was dying laughing, I was in stitches, rolling on the couch, thinking, “Thank God, I’m not there, because that is nothing I need to be a part of.” No, first of all, let me tell you this, because Kid Rock was playing for like forever, right? I was like, “Get out of the way, what is this guy doing?! Come on! I didn’t know this guy still sang!” and then, these girls started coming out and I’m thinking they’re like his hoes, his hired dancers, about to break out into some choreographed Beyoncé-shit, but then I realised and was like, “Oh my God!” I can only imagine them being like, “So, what we’re wanting you to do is: grab Kid Rock’s leg, start grinding up on it, then go into the ring and do a drop toehold.” I’d be like, “Absolutely not, under no circumstances.” So, yeah, that is why I did not do that match.
