My posting will be a lot more sporadic because it’s summer and I am simply too busy: most bloggers are! I’ll take this time to see if I can find anyone to interview on here or on my skateboarding blog, so email me if you are interested!
I will do a weekly re-cap of events that have transpired in various wrestling/MMA companies.
(By the way: How is WWE going to allow Edge and Lita to have had a “live sex show” and Bryan Danielson gets fired for spitting in John Cena’s face because all of a sudden Vince remembered Raw is supposed to be a PG show? LoL um, wat?)
As always e-mail me or leave a comment if you are interested in being featured on this blog. Or you can add me on my main twitter: @awwsumkitteh or on Facebook:
He talks about how Triple H made that “Hey Lillian Garcia is here, hanging out, horsing around” comment, and I had no idea that apparently he and other people have said that she has a horse face, so this flew right over my head until I read this.
If you have a beak like Triple H, where do you get off criticizing ANYBODY’s appearance?
Yeah, exactly. That would be like Shawn Michaels criticizing somebody’s hairline.
Just because you’re the “McMahon family fluffer” doesn’t mean you get carte blanche to say whatever you like, especially now that you don’t have DX to hide behind.
