Nick Paglino


Jason Powell of Prowrestling.net is reporting that Lena Yada recently spoke out about her WWE release while celebrating her birthday with WWE Diva Brie Bella at the Ecco Ultra Lounge in Hollywood, CA on November 20th. She spoke out about rumors claiming she was released because she looks too much like recently signed Diva Gail Kim, and said there is no truth to that belief. She added that she was cut due to budgetary reasons and due to an injury she received during training.

Earlier today, CMT issued the following press release concerning the season finale of CCW: CMT Crowns The Celebrity All-Star Wrestling Champion In The Heart-Pounding Finale Of â<80><9c>HULK HOGANâ<80><99>S CELEBRITY CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLINGâ<80> Premiering Saturday, December 6 At 8pm ET/PT After Seven Intense Weeks Training, Only One Out of Ten Celebrity Wrestling Hopefuls Rises Above the Rest and Wins the First Ever CCW Championship Belt The competition began with 10 daring celebrity hopefuls who were given the opportunity of a lifetime to fulfill their fantasies of becoming professional wrestlers. Every week the contestant who wasnâ<80><99>t able to prove him or her self in the ring was deemed a â<80><9c>Jabroniâ<80> by Hulk Hogan and knocked out of the competition. Now Dustin Diamond from â<80><9c>Saved by the Bell,â<80> actor Todd Bridges from â<80><9c>Diffâ<80><99>rent Strokes,â<80> former NBA champion Dennis Rodman and Super Heavyweight boxer ButterBean are the final four contestants left in the ring. Coaches and former professional wrestlers Brutus â<80><9c>The Barberâ<80> Beefcake and Brian â<80><9c>Nasty Boyâ<80> Knobs give the remaining contestants some final advice and the push they need to leave victorious. Everyone wants to make history and be the first ever â<80><9c>Celebrity All-Star Wrestling Champion,â<80> but this time around itâ<80><99>s every man for himself and only one can take home the title and the CCW belt in the most anticipated main event to date. The finale of HULK HOGANâ<80><99>S CELEBRITY CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING premieres Saturday, December 6 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT. The celebrity contestants endured eight grueling weeks of training and faced various team challenges and elimination matches. They were put to the test both physically and emotionally, as both the competition and tensions continued to rise each week. Theyâ<80><99>ve done it all-hardcore matches, triple threat matches, grudge matches-but this most intense match yet will separate the men from the boys. There may even be a few returning Jabronis that want to settle some scores. The fight for the belt reaches an all time high as the final four step into the ring for the very last time. In the end, only one man is left standing and given the title of â<80><9c>Celebrity All-Star Wrestling Champion.â<80>
