WWE Releases 5th Cryptic 1/2/12 Video Entitled ‘Prophetless’

WWE released its fifth consecutive cryptic video suggesting a return on January 2, 2012 tonight on RAW. This week’s video features the same young girl featured in the previous videos pushing a boy’s notebook off his classroom desk. The girl then says, “I cannot help you anymore. Do you understand?” The word featured at the end of the video this week is “prophetless”

As noted over the past few weeks, it’s strongly believed that the vignettes are promoting the return of Chris Jericho, who was last seen on WWE television in September of 2010 when he was written off after he was punted in the head by Randy Orton.

Chris Jericho has been denying the reports on his Twitter feed as of late, but many believe that he may doing so to throw off his followers on the social media website. As of last week, Jericho was in negotiations with WWE are were described as going well. His return, if he comes to negotiations with WWE, is expected to be what is described as “Rock-esque,” as in coming in for a few angles and then possibly leaving again to focus on his band Fozzy.

One possible WrestleMania 28 return match that has been tossed around backstage is a possible match with current WWE Champion CM Punk.

Kevin Nash Explains Why He's Barely Aged

Speaking to WWE Magazine, Kevin Nash explains why he has managed to withstand father time, which has allowed him to secure plum roles in the image-conscious WWE at the age of 52.

"I've been blessed with Indian heritage, and I haven't aged much facially. And keep in mind the fact I'm talking to you in front of the gym. I go to the gym everyday. I eat a clean diet. Today, I weighed 282 pounds, and I haven't weighed that since I was 22 years old," says the six-time world champion.

"People who had seen me with gray hair thought I was so old. Then, when I dyed it they said, "Oh wow, he doesn't look that old anymore." But here's what I don't understand: We have a segment sponsored by Just for Men, and the fans chant it when I came out and they're not doing something. I just don't get it. Does anyone not see the correlation there? Wouldn't it be more advantageous for them to put my beard and mustache on and say, "Hey, you're up next," and I do a five-minute cover-my-gray routine in front of the camera? But no, they leave it to the Madison Avenue guys."

Nash will face Triple H tomorrow night at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs in a Sledgehammer Ladder Match.

WWE Website Pulls "Biggest Turkeys" Article Following Complaints has pulled last week's controversial Thanksgiving-themed slideshow article counting down the seven biggest "turkeys" to ever trot the squared circle. The page is now inaccessible.

The list was heavily scrutinized by fans and former talent alike who felt it was hurtful as well as hypocritical. Former WWE performers Vito LoGrasso (a/k/a Vito) and Nick Cvjetkovich (a/k/a Kizarny) both took to social media outlets to respond to being labeled turkeys. Vito stated the following Friday on Facebook:

"A lot of people are upset with the WWE today. They spoke of me in a negative way which put the fans in shock. How would they post something like this on a holiday?! I have a family and the kids are all upset. I thought they had an anti-bullying policy."

LoGrasso stated in a subsequent interview that he planned to take the matter to GLAAD and TMZ, pointing out the hypocrisy in WWE bullying him when they have an anti-bullying campaign in place.

Cvjetkovich shared similar sentiments regarding his former employer's demeaning piece as he called it "a dick move" in a YouTube video. He added on Twitter, "So much for anti-bullying @WWE @JoeyStyles. Receiving tons of positive messages is the only thing that saved my Thanksgiving that u wrecked!"

Punk Slams WWE Over Twitter Initiative

During CM Punk's appearance on the latest edition of Colt Cabana's Art Of Wrestling Radio podcast (available on and iTunes), the reigning champion took a swipe at WWE's Twitter initiative.

"I am on Twitter at CMPunk; that is my satirical way of making fun of how the WWE has beat the living shit out of Twitter in the last couple of weeks," he said.


Alex Riley Discusses His Future with WWE and Facing John Cena at WrestleMania

Jeff Wilen of JAWBreaker recently spoke with WWE Superstar Alex Riley about WWE developmental, The Miz, his A-Ry nickname and more. The full interview is available at this link. Here are a few highlights:

Q: Your latest feuds have been with Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger. What feuds would you like to see in your future?

A: “It’s very hard to predict what’s going to happen. It all kinds of changes month to month. I’ve been in the ring with The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Rowdy Roddy Piper. I’ve worked with guys at the top of the business. I expect to be there. I’ve been able to work with legends. I hope to be WWE champion one day. I’d love to see CM Punk in my future, but things are going good for him now. I expect to be in feuds with Christian and Mark Henry.”

Q: Who would you want your WrestleMania match opponent to be?

A: “I’d love to face John Cena one day. He’s a 12-time champion. He has made a mark at the top for so long, and he’s done it better than anyone. He’s kind of the measuring stick for me.”
