— Locally, a dark match main event featuring Undertaker & Triple H vs. The Great Khali & MVP is being advertised for the October 14th SmackDown/ECW taping at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tickets for the event are scheduled to go on sale this Saturday at 10:00 a.m.
— WWE Divas Champion Michelle McCool has posted a new blog on the WWE Fan Nation site, which you can read at this link. She talks about a number of her topics including the lights going out at a recent house show in which she wrestled on, her title defense this past Sunday at Unforgiven, people saying she’s too tan, and more. McCool posted a response to someone apparently insulting her character and wrestling ability.
McCool wrote: “I had someone send me a message saying that I’m this, I’m that, I don’t have this, I don’t have that, I stink at this, I stink at that. Ok…….I get your point – you obviously don’t like or respect me. To my defense, I wish you just knew me before you felt the need to act like you do! 🙂 This will probably come out either ungrateful and mean or extremely passionate (I hope it’s the latter b/c that’s what it’s supposed to be)! I love this business…always have and always will!!! I can only do what I am asked/told to do and I hope that whether you like a superstar or not, you can at least look past what you think you know about him or her and try to respect whatever it is they might be doing. There is a lot more to me than what you have seen on tv and hopefully, in the very near future, you will be able to see that even more. Alot of times, all of the divas are put into the same category as to how they look and/or act. I don’t want that.
We aren’t all the same, we don’t dress the same, we don’t have the same backgrounds, we don’t look the same and we don’t act the same. I myself find that refreshing! We don’t always get the opportunity to show that on tv, so whenever we get a chance to simply be on tv (no matter what the capacity), we try to capitalize on that. It’s just really funny to me….to do this job, it takes a lot of heart, a lot of athleticism, a lot of soul and a whole lot of strength (physical, mental and emotional). The people who are sending these comments obviously have nothing better to do and only see what they want to see (not just with me, with whoever they are sending them to and/or about).”
— Charlie Haas now has an account on the WWE Fan Nation site. He posted a brief noting asking fans which WWE Superstar (past or present) he should impersonate next. You can leave him a response at this link.
