WWE NEWS ON VINCE MCMAHON, THE HARDYS, MICKIE JAMES AND MORE

By Dave Scherer on 2007-06-15 11:54:00

To paraphrase and now blatantly copy the old Saturday Night Live skit, "Mr. McMahon is still presumed dead".  Sorry, I couldn't help myself.  Why, you ask?  Well, this angle is turning downright despicable.  WWE knows that some fans (bless their souls) believe that Vince really blew up in the limo and, as much as I can't believe I am writing this, are actually mourning his "death".  The people who set up a vigil in front of WWE headquarters yesterday were real fans, not plants.  Yeah, I know. It scares me too.  So, when the company does something like market a autographed Mr. McMahon package on their website with the tag that it may be the last thing he ever signed, which they did yesterday, well that's just downright wrong to me.  But, what do I know.

The Richmond Times Dispatch has a local-girl-made-good interview today with Mickie James.  Basically, she talks about how she got into the business.

North Carolina's News and Observer has a similar piece on Matt and Jeff Hardy.

The New York Times has a piece today about former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Justin Strzelczyk, who post mortem was found to have brain damage as a result of concussions that he received while playing football.  Christopher Nowinski, who has become a legitimate expert in the field of concussions and the trauma they caused, was mentioned in the article.  I really admire the work he is doing.
