Ryan Clark

  • Expect the 24-Man Battle Royal at WrestleMania that will feature talent from all three brands to include anybody who is a regular on television who does not already have a WrestleMania match. The match, which will determine the number one contender for the ECW Championship, will likely be kept very short.
  • There are still reports circulating around the Internet that there is backstage heat on CM Punk, however, they are not true. One source told me, â<80><9c>Think about it, if there were heat on CM Punk why would the company put him on Raw against Edge and in the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania?â<80> Apparently the reports stem from people that do not like CM Punk as there are some of the boys that do not like the way that he comes across. Some people backstage see Punk as a â<80><9c>know-it-allâ<80> thus there are reports leaked that he is not liked.
  • From Mike Informer and Bill Taylor: WWE Diva, Melina speaks to phillyBurbs.com. When asked about Playboy, Melina replied, “I always tell people that Iâ<80><99>ll never say never because I donâ<80><99>t want to be one of those girls that one day does it and everyone says, â<80><9c>She said sheâ<80><99>d never do it.â<80> Iâ<80><99>ll never say never but at this point in time I wouldnâ<80><99>t do it because Iâ<80><99>d find it weird to have my family open up the magazine, or have somebody go up to my family, â<80><9c>Hereâ<80><99>s your daughter.â<80> Thatâ<80><99>d just be weird. Right now I want people to see me as Melina. I donâ<80><99>t want to be known as that girl who stripped in Playboy. I have a lot to show the world other than that.” On the subject of Batista, “He doesnâ<80><99>t hide anything, and he didnâ<80><99>t say as much as he would have said, and for reasons I guess? But in his way, he put the most important people in his life in that book, and thatâ<80><99>s his way of saying that Iâ<80><99>m an important person in his life,” Melina said.
