Surprise Entrants For The Royal Rumble!

Don’t read this if you don’t want to be surprised!!!

I’m serious, this is your last chance.

I warned you, dumbo.

According to PWI:

Booker T and Kevin Nash are both booked for the Royal Rumble as surprises, PWInsider.com has confirmed.
As I noted yesterday, I suspected Booker was scheduled based on recent discussions with the company and based on Booker being pulled from his scheduled appearance at the New Orleans Comic Con. Company sources confirmed this morning he is in the Rumble.

WWE sources have also confirmed that Kevin Nash is booked for the Rumble and is scheduled to fly into Boston later today. Nash, who was in discussions with TNA as late as yesterday to finally finalize his deal to return to the company, will instead make his first appearance in a WWE ring in years.

TNA sources confirmed they ended their discussions with Nash within the last several days. The two sides had been going back and forth on signing a new deal in recent months and at one point, sources indicated that a new deal was done. That led to Nash accusing TNA’s office of leaking the information, which led to new rounds of negotiations. Nash admitted in a recent interview he was negotiating with TNA. Those discussions ended sometime within the last 24-48 hours. Nash has been pulled off the TNA website’s roster.

LOL TNA, basically. – Dusty

Stunt Granny Audio: Favorite WrestleMania, Part One

"Toodleoo!"

Inspired by a post on the PWTorch.com VIP Forum asking what everyone’s favorite WrestleMania is, Dusty and Eric discuss the merits of WrestleManias 1 through 13. The overarching question: If Joe Blow had to recommend that Jim Blim watch any particular WrestleMania because it’s his favorite, why would that be the one Mr. Blow recommends? Is it Roddy Piper’s excellent promos? Lord Alfred Hayes’ awful introductions? The atmosphere? The multiple excellent matches? The multiple stinktown matches, bolstered by a couple of incredible main events? See what the boys think of the first baker’s dozen WrestleManias, then stay tuned for the rest!

The Rattlesnake Strikes Back!

I can't believe they never used this image on one of his shirts.

According to Entertainment Weekly (by way of Dot Net), “The Rattlesnake” Steve Austin will be the host of the new incarnation of Tough Enough. Both articles seem to think that Austin will be taking over Al Snow’s duties as head trainer. I have my doubts about that since the man won’t step back into the ring for a pay day so why would he do it for a reality show that will likely get canceled as soon as the rating drops 0.1? I get the feeling he’ll do enough so that no one feels robbed and the WWE gets to attach a marquee name to a “new” program like they did with all of the cross over appearances when ECW started. Austin could be a great host with his obvious mic skills and the WWE can pimp his news movies. It’s a win win. Did I just get through an article without bagging on someone? Yes I did. – Kevin
