But first, I would like to thank each and everyone of you that made me get to a 100 followers!
THANK YOU ALL!!!.
Alright, on to actual WWE News.
Biggest news of all so far probably, is the release of Matt Hardy.
Now, as I all kept you informed on how he wanted his release from the WWE, because he just wasn't happy there anymore, I am (sort of) happy to announce that he finally got it. That does, however, mean that the whole soap around is over, which is something I'm less happy about, because it was a nice fill up. I mean news item. News item is what I meant. Yeah. Anyway, as we came to know about Mr. Hardy, he enjoys it to upload video's about WWE and what not. Now, with his release, there is of course no exception.
Click here to see a very happy Matt Hardy.
During an interview with the Daily Star, TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy railed World Wrestling Entertainment for their treatment of his brother Matt.
“I’m not going to give WWE their props for the way they’ve dealt with Matt. He is such a giving talent, ready to do anything for them, and he’s been given the run-around. They’ve treated him like sh*t.
“I think if he came here, you would see the happiest, most dangerous and exciting Matt Hardy you’ve ever seen. I hope that they let him leave and he shows up here any day now.”
WWE confirmed the release of Matt Hardy in a statement on its website Friday.
According to WWE’s official statement, “WWE has come to terms on the release of Matt Hardy, effective as of October 15, 2010. WWE wishes Matt Hardy the best in his future endeavors.”
Veteran WWE announcer Jim Ross quickly commented on the story, noting, “WWE has come to terms on the release of Matt Hardy. Know no details just that fact. Good luck to Matt. Probably best 4 all involved.”
The toxicology results are in for former WWE performer Luna Vachon.
The District Six Medical Examiner’s office in Florida found that Luna died from an accidental overdose of painkillers and anti-anxiety medication.
TMZ.com reports that the 48-year-old wrestler had oxycodone and benzodiazepine in her system when she died in her Florida home back in August.
Shortly after her death, it was reported that investigators found crushed pill residue and snorting straws at multiple locations inside Luna’s house.
Luna’s ashes were scattered last month at the late Andre The Giant’s ranch in North Carolina.
Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:
Undertaker Possibly Losing at WrestleMania: “The WWE is filled with highly intelligent people which is another reason that I don’t feel that the Undertaker will ever lose at a Wrestlemania event. When I say never, I mean never. What a magnificent card one can keep in one’s pocket to play at the biggest event of the year where so much is measured and defined. The Undertaker’s ‘streak’ at Wrestlemania is like a franchise unto itself.”
AJ Styles/Shawn Michaels Comparison: “I think AJ Styles is a great in ring talent, perhaps even underutilized, but he is not better at this time than was HBK in Shawn’s prime. That’s not a knock on Styles even though some will take it as such. To even compare AJ to HBK should be looked upon as high praise.”
Former WWE performer Lance McNaught (a/k/a Lance Cade) died on August 13, 2010 from accidentally ingesting multiple drugs combined with the effects of a an enlarged heart, according to an autopsy report from a medical examiner in San Antonio, Texas.
A staffer of the Bexar County, Texas, Medical Examiner’s Office said of McNaught’s death to The New Haven Register in Connecticut: “The cause was ruled mixed drug intoxication, complicating a cardiomyopathy.” His death was ruled accidental.
The medical examiner’s report does not indicate whether McNaught’s use of anabolic steroids contributed to cardiomyopathy, which has been linked to steroid abuse.
Robert Zimmerman, a spokesman for World Wrestling Entertainment, told the newspaper that WWE obtained e-mails written by McNaught to a fellow wrestler, saying he had ordered two types of steroids in March and expected to fail a drug test.
McNaught was released from WWE in October 2008, then rehired in September 2009. He was sent to drug rehabilitation at his request, but was released a second time in April.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter speculates that due to The Undertaker’s health, matches pitting “The Deadman” against Kane for WWE’s tour of the U.K. next month have been changed to Triple Threat bouts with the inclusion of Big Show.
I have in no way conformation of these mentioned health issues. I also don't really see how making the match a Triple Threat would make things any better if said issues are there.
