Bischoff 100% In Talks With CMT, Heyman Trashes Lawler, More
UGO.com has an interview with Paul Heyman, which you can read at UGO.com. On a recent edition of WWE 24/7’s Legends Roundtable show, Lawler said he purposely broke Heyman’s jaw back in 1988. When asked about it, Heyman responded, “Well, he broke my jaw BEFORE the scaffold match. He’s always taken liberties with other people, especially those who by the nature of the situation had to place some trust in him. F*** him. I don’t spend any time in my life thinking about him. He’s in the past where he belongs. And no, I’m not surprised he’s still talking about me. If half HIS locker room banged MY wife, I guess I’d hold a grudge, too.” Heyman also talks about his online show, being a “hustler,” MMA, and more.
I can now confirm that Eric Bischoff is definitely in talks with CMT about starting up a new wrestling promotion with Hulk Hogan after the “Celebrity Wrestling” reality show run ends. Many see this move as pretty difficult with almost no name talent not under contract to WWE, TNA or Ring of Honor right now with the exception of Bill Goldberg, Rob Van Dam and Bobby Lashley. The general feeling is that CMT will get more serious with talks depending on how well Hogan’s celebrity wrestling show does.
WWE.com is reporting that World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk will join the WWE Fan Nation blog tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET (6:30 p.m. CT) before Unforgiven to answer questions from fans.
Former WWE Diva Ashley Massaro is scheduled to appear at Dawn Marie’s Wrestlers Rescue event next Sunday. Dawn Marie’s goal is to help raise money to provide health care for professional wrestlers. The event’s website, WrestlersRescue.org, has an interesting description regarding Ashley. Apparently, she has plans to release a music album soon and appear on a reality show in 2009.
