Michelle McCool and Big Show walked the red carpet at last week’s 2008 Hero Awards Gala. You can see photos of McCool and Show at the event at http://www.michellemccool.net.
Speaking of McCool, she’s posted a new blog on WWE.com. She talks about how excited she is about a WWE Women’s Championship being brought to SmackDown. She also talks about her appearances at the Best Damn Sports Show Period and the Hero Awards Gala last week. Regarding the Gala, McCool said, “It’s such a huge honor and compliment when someone tells me I’m their hero … but, why me? What have I done? I’m just a small town girl who enjoys making people happy.”
The recently released Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry book alleges that Vince McMahon has something of a “love affair” for cocaine that may or may not have ever subsided. Here is what was written in the book: According to numerous sources, McMahon had a great love affair with cocaine that may or may not have ever subsided; “he liked to brag with apparent justification that ‘I can snort as much of that stuff as anyone can put in front of me and never get hooked.” One WWE employee of recent years told me, “The boys and former office staff use euphemisms when they talk about Vince’s ‘energy.’ You’ll hear it in things like, ‘I don’t know where he gets all the energy….. He doesn’t ever seem to sleep!’ The inside joke about it is that sixty-something Vince most likely isn’t that energetic over multi-day sleepness stretches without help. I’ve seen him so wired that his eyes looked like they were going to pop.”
