Jack Swagger getting a big push
WWE star Jack Swagger (a/k/a Jacob Hager) was arrested on DUI charges and marijuana was found in his possession after the Smackdown taping in Mississippi. He was also charged with speeding. A WWE spokesman told TMZ.com that "Mr. Swagger is responsible for his own personal actions."
Powell's POV: Swagger is getting a huge push and is currently the subject of mainstream media attention related to the controversy regarding his character as well as the Zeb Colter character. The timing could not have been worse.
^^ YES YES YES
his push will be destroyed nao
Triple H cut his hair?
Wow he must be so Corporate now and beyond being a wrestler.

Pro Wrestling's Paul Bearer Dies At Age 58

William Moody, who as the pro wrestling character Paul Bearer embodied a sense of theater that was equal parts morbid and absurd, has died at age 58. A portly man known for his wild-eyed stare and habit of carrying a brass urn under his arm, Paul Bearer was most notably the manager of The Undertaker and Kane.
Moody's death was announced Tuesday by World Wrestling Entertainment. No details of the cause of death were included, but a post at The Baltimore Sun reveals that Moody had canceled several upcoming events.
As news of Moody's death spread, tributes have emerged on Twitter and elsewhere, with friends and colleagues remembering Moody as a kind and generous man — far from his on-screen demeanor as an evil mortician.
And on the WWE website, the fans revisited highlights of Moody's career, from a highly orchestrated entrance in which he was brought ringside inside a red casket (by a cadre of monks, no less) to a symbolically rich 1999 match in which the ring was bordered by flames — and Vince McMahon, seated ringside, was visibly unsettled by the delivery of a black hat box whose sole contents were a cuddly teddy bear.
On the AL.com website, an appreciation for Moody, who died in his native Mobile, Ala., lists some of his early colleagues:
"In 1978 in Biloxi, he unveiled Percival Pringle III as the manager of the Mongolians. The wrestlers that Moody went on to be associated with reads like a who's who of a certain era: "Ravishing" Rick Rude, The Assassin, Blackjack Mulligan, The Great Kabuki, Lex Luger, The Ultimate Warrior and Stone Cold Steve Austin."
Sad to hear about his death, Paul was one of the best managers of all time!!!!
is it just me or is it whack they didn't turn Cena Vs Rock into a 3 way with Punk
I don't really watch wrestling, but I usually catch The Rock's big matches just because I enjoy him and along with the occasional Punk, Brian Danielson and Jericho matches.
if it's the main event at like backlash or something I think that'd be cool and make it a better match from a workrate/spots standpoint instead of just a rematch at Mania. That said Cena and Rock had a good match last year.
I just think it would've been dope like the Rey/Angle/Orton and HHH HBK Benoit matches (I think?) that have headlined past Manias.
damn when it said rip paul he was one of the best managers of all time i got scared Heyman died.
paul bearer may have been the best cartoony manager in WWF days. or hogan's lol. rip. the angle they had where they introduced kane was hilarious. undertaker left him in a burning house or something.

It's a shame that Paul Bearer will probably be put in the Hall of Fame, because he passed away, because he should have been put in years ago. In fact I hate how some people have to die, or wait years before they get in (some of the legends are not even in) yet someone like Edge, or HBK get's put in the day they say "I am retiring"
-Chris Masters Saves Mom from Burning House
Former WWE superstar Chris "The Masterpiece" Masters saved his mother from burning to death by uprooting a tree with his bare hands and using it as a battering ram to enter her house.
Masters -- real name Chris Mordetzky -- tells us, he rushed to his mother's L.A. home yesterday after his uncle called and said a neighbor had gone crazy and barricaded himself inside her house.
When Chris showed up, the neighbor was shouting through the front door that he would burn the place down if anyone tried to gain entry.
Chris says he tried talking sense into the guy, but he wasn't having it -- so Chris called the cops ... but when they showed up, the neighbor set the house on fire.
Chris jumped into hero mode -- tearing a tree out of the ground and tossing it through a window.
Chris reached through the window and removed his mom from the inferno ... at which point police rushed in and arrested the neighbor on arson charges.
The man is currently still in custody. It's unclear why he snapped.
One thing's for sure ... Chris does a mother proud.
