“I would like to take time here to address the passing of my dear friend Jorge Gonzales, also known as Giant Gonzalez [during his tenure with me] and El Gigante, when he was with WCW. I was Jogo’s [nickname short for his name] manager the entire time he was with the WWE and not only was I his manager, but I was his friend and confidante as well aka his errand boy! Not that I minded either…s**t if I was 8 feel tall, I’d want somebody to run out and get my food and medicine too! Jogo was always a gentleman and a true friend.

WWE will reportedly not be holding a “Tribute To The Troops” show overseas this year. However, company officials are looking to hold a similar style event at a domestic military base, possibly in Texas.
A reason for this is not yet known.
After learning there would be no trip to Iraq this year, there was big relief among the

It was reported earlier this week that Melyssa Buhl, a 26-year-old fitness model from Vancouver, British Columbia, had signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment. She later sent e-mails to various news outlets indicating she had not signed with WWE, noting she was ‘entering a contract’ and would not be shooting past October 14.
In the latest update regarding the situation, Buhl posted several messages on her facebook account last month concerning meetings with WWE officials – which have since been deleted. She said she had signed a contract with WWE and would therefore be shutting down her official website, which features adult material.
The website has been taken offline.
