Legit Heat Between HBK and Vince McMahon?


There may be some tension right now between Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels. According to Dave Meltzer, McMahon recently made the decision to have the announcers no longer refer to Shawn Michaels on TV. Additionally, there is to be no footage of him shown on WWE television.

Reports are circulating about what the reason for the heat between the two is. Word is that Michaels was very unhappy about the Bryan Danielson situation. It’s also believed that McMahon is still upset that Michaels decided to reture, as McMahon felt Michaels could give him a few more years. Michaels is said to be very distances from wrestling these days.

WWE High-Flyers DVD Out Later This Year

Below is the official synopsis for WWE’s Best of the High-Flyers DVD that comes out later this year:

“Some of the most exciting moments in sports entertainment history have come through the air. High-flying Superstars have always brought fans to their feet, from “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka, the Killer Bees, the Rockers, Rey Mysterio, Billy Kidman, and more. This 3-DVD set, “Best of the High Flyers”, collects some of the greatest aerial displays in sports entertainment history. The dozens of matches in this collection represent the “Creme de la Creme” of WWE, WCW, ECW, WCCW, and more.”


Cena or Triple H Behind Nexus?

WWE is entertaining the idea of turning a top Superstar heel and have them be the person behind The Nexus angle. The main people being pitched for a heel turn are Triple H and John Cena, believe it or not.

Although Cena could definitely use a fresh role within WWE, especially since he hasn't played the role of a heel throughout his WWE career, the move most likely will not happen. Cena turning heel would be a risk to WWE because of his popularity with kids and his strong merchandise sales that WWE does not want to lose out on. Triple H, on the other hand, has wanted to turn heel for a few years now, but with injuries to him and his co-workers, the opportunity to turn heel has never presented itself.

Melina Chats on Her Return to the Ring

Melina is scheduled to return to the ring at tonight’s FCW show in Florida. She wrote the following on Monday:

“This tweet is about my day at fcw. Everyone thinks I’m wrestling right now and I have to do some wrestling style therapy to see what I can actually do and if it’s safe for me. The wwe doctor still needs to talk to my doctor in LA, then get back to the fcw therapist. I admit, certain moves scared me. I’m not sure if what I feel at times is bad, normal or all in my head. We just have to wait and see. I will keep you posted each day.”

Carlito Says He's Been Dying to Get Out of the WWE

Appearing on Monday’s edition of the Right After Wrestling Sirius satellite radio show, former WWE superstar Carlito opened up about being depressed and trying to leave the company on numerous occasions before he was finally released due to his refusal to enter rehab for an alleged pain pill addiction.

On wanting to get the hell out of WWE: “I had been asking for my release for a long time. I tried to finish up my contract, which I think was up in August. I had been trying to leave for about three years. For the last year, I was just miserable. I wasn’t even myself. I was dying just to get away.”

On being fired for a Wellness Policy infraction and refusing to go to rehab: “I wouldn’t say I got myself fired on purpose, but in that last year, I really didn’t care. They wanted me to go to rehab. My opinion was I didn’t need it. I’m not addicted to pills. I think what happened is I was depressed. I have scripts (for pain medication) legit reasons for using them. I think I was abusing them as anti-depressants instead. I remember other people not in WWE would tell me to go to rehab because it looks good on paper. I said, ‘One, I don’t want to keep my job. Two, I’m not going to admit to a problem I don’t have.’”

On the grinding travel and not being utilized properly on television: “I was always grinding. I was always working. Mainly, my big problem was I thought they were f**king with me. I didn’t like the mind games and all the bulls*** they were putting me through. Maybe it was all in my head, but I just felt that’s what they were doing with me. I could never get a straight answer. I get sometimes you have to take a backseat, but how long am I supposed to sit in the back?”

On dealing with the backstage politics and people’s claims that he was lazy: “I remember people would tell me to just play the game. I can’t just play the game. I can’t be fake. I love the business, I just don’t like the politics. I want to be able to help out and give back in somehow. In WWE, I wasn’t doing any of that. I also felt I was gypping the people (in WWE) putting in three-minute matches that didn’t mean anything. It just breaks your heart when you can give so much more.”


Triple H Out for a Few More Months After Surgery

Triple H recently underwent surgery for an undisclosed reason. We have learned that the surgery was to repair a torn muscle tendon in one of his arms, an injury that surfaced during his time off from WWE.

Sadly, this injury will sideline Triple H for several more months, which means that his scheduled return for WWE SummerSlam against Sheamus in August is now off.

Ric Flair Chops Banned

The is some truth to the recent rumors that Vince McMahon is banning “Ric Flair chops.” Sources say that the chops were actually banned after Shawn Michaels retired and before that, they were banned for everyone except for Michaels. McMahon does have a problem with the “Whooo” reactions that the chops get from fans. Yoshi Tatsu, who may not have gotten the word, did the Flair chops before RAW in Nashville this week and it got the same reaction from fans.

McMahon Upset with Y2J Over Game Show

The fact that Vince McMahon is mad at Chris Jericho for hosting ABC’s new game show Downfall has a lot of people within WWE scratching their heads.

There was a bit of an unspoken agreement when Jericho returned to WWE a few years back that he would be allowed to pursue outside interests. Now that Chris Jericho is doing other things besides Fozzy, Vince isn’t happy with it.

Some people think that Vince is still bitter over top guys like The Rock leaving WWE for other projects.

Drew McIntyre Returns to WWE at a Show Last Night

Drew McIntyre made his return to WWE last night at the SmackDown live event in Savannah, Georgia. McIntyre cut a promo before the crowd and it’s expected that he will be back on WWE TV at tonight’s tapings in Atlanta.

WWE did an angle where Drew was deported for work visa problems, which was not far from the truth, as he had to return to Scotland to get a new work visa.


Austin Chats About RAW

WWE teased Steve Austin as being the anonymous General Manager on last night’s RAW. Austin sometimes Tweets during RAW but didn’t last night. However, he wrote the following after the show: “busy all day folks…working on a project to be shot in Vancouver in a few weeks….more details later…gonna hit the hay..good night.”

Fans bombarded Austin’s account with comments and about him being the General Manager and the teasers on RAW. Austin replied: “I missed it but it sounds like It was an interesting RAW.”

Sources indicate that WWE does not have Austin planned as the General Manager.
