On Matt Hardy's official website, he has taken down some photos of Lita. When he was asked about by the fans of his message board, he replied:

 

"I asked Kirby to temporarily take all pictures of Amy off the website for now. If you happen to run into Amy at an appearance, I think you should ask her why her pictures have been taken down."

 

He also said in another post that the past couple of days have been rotten for him. The two have been a real life couple for several years now.

Tommy Dreamer, representing WWE, has started calling former ECW stars not currently under WWE deals to be a part of the WWE planned ECW One Night Stand PPV at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on June 12th.

 

The Sandman and several others have been contacted by Tommy in the last 24 hours about appearing.

 

There is no word if WWE is contacting the guys as a way to prevent them from working for a reunion show being organized by Shane Douglas on Friday June 10th.

-- Aside from having drinks poured on her while she was sleeping, Amy Weber is telling people that Randy Orton "did something to her", and that is the main reason why she is considering suing WWE.

 

When Orton first got to WWE, he would show off pictures he took with females who he hooked up with to try to impress the other wrestlers. Management has become concerned with Orton's conduct out of the ring, and some veterans think he is too full of himself and acts way out of line on the road.

 

Maven is known as one of Orton's pals on the road, however he was not involved in the Weber situation.

 

This week's edition of Raw did a 4.0 cable rating, with a 5.9 share. The show did hours of 3.8 and 4.2.

 

The Ultimate Fighter that followed it did a 2.0 cable rating, with a 4.4 share, for the Chris vs. Josh fight. UFC has to be ecstatic with that number as its the best they have done yet.

 

The 2/20 edition of Heat did a 0.8 cable rating, with a 1.3 share.

 

The 2/20 edition of The WWE Experience did a 0.5 cable rating, with a 1.3 share.

 

The 2/19 edition of Velocity did a 0.5 cable rating, with a 1.0 share.

 

Thanks to Wrestlingobserver for the following:

 

-Steve Austin will be appearing on the cover of the next WWE Raw magazine with the caption: "Stunner! The Exclusive Story Behind Stone Cold's Return".

 

-Mick Foley is billed to appear on Dennis Millers show tonight on CNBC which airs at 9 p.m. est time.

 

Chicago, Illinois will host Wrestlemania 22 in April 2006, according to an article in Illinois newspaper The Des Plaines Journal. An official announcement will be made this Friday to the local media, according to the newspaper, which cites a press release from city officials.

 

The show will be held at the Allstate Arena, which features a capacity of close to 20,000 fans. Two previous Wrestlemania events were held in the venue (back when it was known as the Rosemont Horizon prior to a 1999 renovation), a portion of Wrestlemania 2 highlighted by a WWF vs. NFL Battle Royal and Wrestlemania 13 which featured the historic Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin bout that ended up sparking Austin's career and being Hart's final Wrestlemania appearance.

 

[wwe4eva says]: "I think Bret Hart will be there this time, since it's also in Canada."

Chris Jericho will be co-hosting the "Friday Night Rocks" radio show this Friday night, February 25th on WAXQ 104.3 in New York City with Eddie Trunk. The show will feature an interview with Black Label Society/Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, who has a history with working Jericho's band Fozzy in the past.

 

In related Jericho news, his band "Fozzy" will be returning to the UK for another show (he sold out over there several times a few weeks ago) this time he'll be playing the Astoria in London, Saturday, May 7th.

 

Thanks to Ian Hamilton for the following:

 

Jason Clevett over at Slam! Wrestling has posted an interesting article on John Cena, featuring parts of an interview he did with Cena in Calgary last week. Cena talks about how he tried to do too much at WrestleMania 20 last year, as well as his spells in Ohio Valley and UPW. There's also a bit about Cena's time with Samoa Joe, and how the pair used the catchphrase "The Champ Is Here", as well as what Cena wants to do with the rest of his career.

-- There are video vignettes already being produced for Randy Orton vs. Undertaker at WrestleMania 21.

 

-- The original plan was to turn Randy Orton heel again, but he practically begged to remain baby face. There's no word on whether his begging was effective or not, but it's not likely that WWE management will be doing him any favors. As previously reported, management isn't very happy with his backstage and road antics.

 

-- WWE is planning to set up a ring and hold an exhibition to promote Wrestlemania 21 in Hollywood, CA in front of the Kodak Theatre on Thursday 3/31 at 12 noon.[/Quote]

I suggest you look at a map.

The problem I have with them doing an ECW ppv, is that I REALLY doubt it will do any justice to ECW. There is no way they will be as hardcore as in the past. The insurance would be killer for one and unless Heyman does the booking for it, it will kill anything and most fans won't really remember or be able to see what ECW meant.

Shane Douglas certainly wont be involved in this PPV as he's under contract by TNA. It'll be nice to see if they do it ECW style PROPERLY!

 

Bring Lance Storm oUt of retirement for another classic with RVD, Tazz vs Dreamer and Dudleyz vs Spike & New Jack (what ever happen to Jack? I seem to remember reading he had signed with WWE....?)

Shane is doing his own event, two days beforehand, as a way to both cash in on ECW and probably to spite Vince McMahon at the same time. That show will include Francine, Joey Styles (who has states he will not commentate for the WWE version), Raven, and possibly Sandman, Sabu and New Jack. Difference is, Shane's version seems more like a 3PW card.

RVD will still be injured. He's being tipped as doing commentary with Tazz for the event.

 

(what ever happen to Jack? I seem to remember reading he had signed with WWE....?)

He never had a hope of signing. He said he was going to be, but WWE didn't seem to care for him.

 

i was on the CZW website and on the banner it had a guy who looked like New Jack on it. it was late last night mind so i was probably seeing things.

It was probably B-Boy or Homicide. Maybe Ruckus, but I don't think he looks like New Jack.

 

anyone know what happened to matt and lita? please answer

Everyone's guessing that she cheated on him or something. I think that the WWE may have had a word to Matt about keeping kayfabe, and reminded him that he should probably still hate Lita for the baby being Kane's, etc. Who knows. Wouldn't surprise me if she did cheat on him for real. She seems to have quite the sluttish reputation.
