ROUSEY ON WRESTLEMANIA, MICHALEK ON JUSTIN ROBERTS, LAWLER-RAW, ECW UNRELEASED, JR AND MORE WWE NEWS

The WWE Network is free this month for new subscribers.

Ronda Rousey did a Twitter Q&A and when asked how it felt to work Wrestlemania, commented, "Like being asked to pinch hit in the world series and hitting a home run."

Steve Michalek, the father of the late Conner Michalek wrote the following on the Conner's Cure Twitter account regarding what former WWE ring announcer Justin Roberts wrote about WWE's handling of the Conner story: "Regardless of what said, @JustinRoberts loved Connor and we love him.That's what counts.I will never 4get all he did for Connor, and now me."

For those who asked about this, Jerry Lawler was always scheduled to come out and join Byron Saxton on Raw last week. Raw was scripted for Lawler to come out right before the John Cena vs. Dean Ambrose match.

This week's edition of WWE NXT will be entirely devoted to NXT at Wrestlemania week, including AXXESS and Hideo Itami heading into the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

"Guardians of the Galaxy 2" will begin filming in February 2016. That pretty much puts Batista out for next year's Wrestlemania.

Eva Marie has been training as of late out of Brian Kendrick's school in California.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has a new blog up at this link looking at the idea of Samoa Joe in NXT, Ross bringing his one man show to Baltimore next month, getting an offer to return to calling wrestling and more. I'll be on Ross' podcast on 4/28.
