WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus is targeting junk food as she spoke out on their warning labels in an interview with The Globe and Mail.
In regards to what actually qualifies as junk food, she states, “The further a food gets away from its original form, the more processed it is, the more “junky.”
Since orange juice is full of sugar, would it qualify as junk food?
“Orange juice is okay, a natural sugar that your body can process. The crap in soda – your body says, “Hmm, not sure what this is, I’ll just store that for now,” she states.
The multi-time champion believes it would be a “great idea” if government officials legislated warning labels on junk food similar to those found on cigarette packages.
“I’m constantly surprised how unaware people are about what they’re putting into their bodies. People just don’t know!” said Stratus. “I think if people realized how detrimental some of this junk food is to their health, they really would think twice. And maybe it wouldn’t stop them from eating it, but it certainly might cause one to see the benefits of practising moderation.”

WWE has applied to register the trademarks for “Crush Couture”, all for different kinds of merchandise. The trademarks do not make it clear whether it’s for a new character or if they are opening a new product line.
WWE also applied to register for “CC”, which is most likely related to “Crush Couture”, for merchandise use as well as a logo featuring two C’s reversed away from each other.

Kevin Nash tweeted the following about an independent wrestling promoter in Virginia:
“Head’s up to anyone that doesn’t want to work with a scumbag promoter. Pass on Marvin Ward and Top Rope Productions out of Virginia. Dirtbag. This scumbag has several names Marvin, Doug keep an eye out.It is @TheRealXPac and my mission that this hick never runs another show. Will be going to the Virginia wresting commission on Monday to file against both him and the promotion.”
There were a lot of WWE mid-card talents who were down that they never got to go out in front of the crowd or had backstage segments, especially since in years past, the company had always tried to squeeze everyone in. This year’s show, however, was rushed from the very start.
There was also a lot of talk about how silly it was that Antonio Cesaro didn’t have a spot on the show given how hard he’s worked.
Many are always wondering why more matches weren’t added to the hour-long pre-show.

Dolph Ziggler teased cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase during an interview with IGN.
“We forget that eight months ago I was trying to cash it in on every Monday, Friday, Sunday, and every time it ended with my teeth getting kicked down my face,” Ziggler replied. “I eventually got fed up with that and said, “The next time I do this, it has to happen. Let’s make it count,” and that’s what I’m looking forward to. One of these times it’s going to happen. Maybe it’s Sunday.”

In the audio below, Trish Stratus talks to Diva-Dirt.com about the decision to have Stephanie McMahon induct her into the WWE Hall of Fame this weekend. Trish told Diva-Dirt:
“It was a difficult [choice]. There’s so many people who have had such an influence on my career and shaped my career. Getting a nod to be in the WWE Hall of Fame, it’s a look back at your career and at the end of the day, there would have been no career, no opportunity, no revamping of the women’s division if Stephanie wasn’t behind it all. When we feuded, there’s something about when you have an experience with someone that you bond with them. When we had our feud, we bonded then and we remained close ever since. She’s just always supportive of showcasing a strong, powerful woman. There would be no division and none of the women would have gotten the push that we needed, or the encouragement we needed. She and I have remained friends. I’ve watched her evolve into a businesswoman. We were at the same level — green workers having fun wrestling and then she really just got behind the scenes and became a businesswoman. It’s very empowering to see the position she has now. I retired and went into the business world and with all my endeavors, it’s a tough world for a woman. I admire her greatly and respect her greatly.”
Stephanie talked with TrishStratus.com about the induction:
“It’s hard to believe that it was a little over 10 years ago that Trish and I were in storylines together. We had a lot of fun together. I said it in my Tweet last night – she was my favorite person to slap. We both started around the same time, we were both ‘green’ as you would say.” Trish went on to become an incredible Diva in the ring… but we had the opportunity to start in a similar place. To be able to tell the story that we told was quite an amazing opportunity at a really entertaining, attitudinal time in our business. That’s one of the things that is so remarkable about Trish. It’s not common, in anyone really, to be able to develop their own brand on television and then know how to market that brand to audiences all around the world. To take Trish Stratus and the Stratusphere and turn it into an actual business that is successful and also allows you to continue to raise your profile as you market different products, and become more involved in many different opportunities. Trish is truly a business woman, and as a business woman, I appreciate and respect that, especially as Trish has really done that on her own. She is a strong, powerful, smart woman, and we need more women in leadership roles.”

In response to the criticism of bad booking for Alberto Del Rio, WWE is looking at hiring a Hispanic Telenovela writer who will be responsible for the creative content, scripts and developing storylines & characters to target specifically Hispanic crowds.
The X-Division is evolving! New Rules Announced! 230lb Weight Limit!
All X-Division championship matches will now be held under triple threat rules. The champion will have two challengers at the same time and has a thirty-three percent chance of retaining the title and runs the risk of losing the title without being pinned. The high-stakes title match has consequences for the challengers as well. The wrestler pinned in the X-Division championship match is eliminated from a future title match while the wrestler who isn’t involved in the decision gets to compete in the next X-Division title match. So where will the next contender come from?
New contenders will be also decided via a Triple Threat match. Fresh faces, former champions or recently eliminated contenders all will battle with one winner advancing into the next X-Division title match.
