– Matt Cordes reporting… Hey I just wanted to let you guys know that HHH, Batista, and JBL were all at the Arnold Classic yesterday in Columbus. JBL was very nice taking pictures and signing autographs for people. Batista was at a table for one of the companies that gives him supplements and he was signing autographs there and HHH was up on a stage of another supplement company pretty much just smiling for the fans and throwing some stuff out to the crowd. All 3 seemed to be nice guys and were having a good time at the event. I can only assume all 3 went to the UFC fight later that night since they were already in Columbus and I know these guys love the UFC stuff.
– Michael R reporting… Just thought I’d pass along that Batista was shown on camera during UFC 82: Pride of a Champion. The announcer, Mike Goldberg, made reference to Batista and Brock Lesnar being good friends and that Batista would without a doubt be back to support Lesnar at UFC 85 on June 14th when he fights Jason “The Insane 1” McCully. Batista was booed by the crowd.
– Contradicting earlier reports, WWE diva Candice Michelle did not make her in-ring return this weekend. She did work both Raw house shows, but not the matches she was advertised for.
