[WWE] HBK’s Original Mania Opponent, Tim White & More


– WWE.com has been posting several updates to its Wrestlemania sub-site, with the latest being an homage to The Undertaker’s legacy.

– PWInsider.com is reporting that the original plan for Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania was for him to face off against Shane McMahon. This was changed to Shawn vs. Vince since Shane’s wife is pregnant, due to give birth around the same time as the show. Shane will now have more flexibility to be with Marissa at that time, and instead will face Shawn at Saturday Night’s Main Event.

– In the latest Tim White “Lunchtime Suicide” video on WWE.com, Josh Mathews tries to console White via a mock “suicide helpline,” but fails. Instead, White tries to kill himself with the phone cord, Josh calls 911, and then gets put on hold. The hold music, of course, is “Basic Thuganomics.”
