j@ sent this into us: WWE superstars Mr. Kennedy and Beth Phoenix made appearances in Melbourne at JB-HiFi. The place was packed and the people were very excited. Kennedy and Phoenix got on stage and spoke to the fans and all, some people from the line were chanting Kennedy. During the signing, Kennedy was very arrogant and was acting heel like, only giving a couple smiles and Thank You’s to some people. Beth Phoenix, on the other hand was awesome. She spoke to me and asked me if I was doing alright. Overall a great experience. Outside in the line, I heard people talking about TNA. TNA iMPACT needs to be in Australia.
Michael Griffin sent this in: Hey guys, just a quick note on the ratings for the UK. Sky can detect when someone has chosen to record Raw, Smackdown or ECW on Sky+ instead of watching the show as it’s broadcast, taking this into account, upwards of 200,000 viewers tune into Raw, Smackdown or ECW. This has been the case for quite a long time.
WWE.com has an interview up with Bret Hart where he talks about the 10 year anniversary of the famous 1997 Survivor Series screwjob.
There is also a “What if?” section up asking if the roles were reversed if the company had decided to “screw” Shawn Michaels instead featuring comments from Hart, Steve Austin, Triple H, Jerry Lawler and Jim Neidhart. If you know the background of the story, you can pretty much already figure out who has the positive comments and negative comments.
