Rick sent the following: I just thought your readers might find this amusing. I was doing some shopping with the wife at Best Buy here in town last night and we’re standing in line and see this middle-aged lady ahead of us with 6 or 7 of the Best Buy exclusive John Cena DVD pack. It comes with a t-shirt, dog tags and some other stuff I think. Anyway, they told her she could only buy 4 and the lady just flipped. She really made a huge scene right there in the middle of all these people, ranting and raving about her kids and her whole family needed one and they “loved John Cena.” It was quite amusing to watch until it just became outright ridiculous. The manager told the lady she could go to another Best Buy store and buy 4 more if she needed them but each store had a 4-item limit on the special DVD set. The lady actually threw one of the boxes towards the cash register and the whole thing ended with the lady getting arrested. Your typical John Cena fan, I guess.

ECW World Champion CM Punk did an interview with the Wichita Eagle this past week. During the interview he called ECW the redheaded stepchild of WWE. He was quoted as saying, “I’ve got a descent spot, I’m at all the PPVs defending my title. But I do feel ECW is a little bit of the redheaded stepchild of WWE. But that’s not all negative, either. I actually embrace that.” Punk also made comments that he feels he is the most passionate person in the business.
