Missing Links on Hogan, Angle, Punk, “The Wrestler”, and SO MUCH more!

Linda Bollea (Hogan) is getting PAID!

Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle discusses the Games of the Olympiad.

Good little interview with CM Punk from Time Out Chicago. My favorite line, “Actually, I’m not allowed to wear my street clothes on TV because Vince McMahon says I don’t look like CM Punk when I’m not in my gear.” That Vinny Mac is such a card!

SoCal Val loves her job.

Photos of Mickey Rourke in Darren Aronofsky’s “The Wrestler”. He sort of reminds me of Jerry Lynn in the bloody, in-ring photo.

Former Army Sergeant and ECW World Champion Bobby Lashley is about to make his MMA debut for American Fight League.

In a recent SLAM! Sports interview, Batista speaks candidly about his displeasure with his current feud against John Cena, his negative thoughts regarding Mike Adamle as RAW General Manager, his take on the latest round of roster cuts, his perception of Khali’s wrestling skill (pot calling the kettle black?) and several other topics.

On the point of the first singles meeting between Cena and Batista having a lackluster build, former WWE writer Seth Mates concurs, calling it “awful”.

Recently released (again?!) WWE wrestler Shannon Moore discusses his future. I always thought he was talented, and with his unique look he could be a force in a more cruiserweight-friendly environment. Good luck, Mr. Moore.

American Gladiator Matt Morgan will send his DNA to space. You know, because he’s the “most genetically-jacked, athletically stacked giant in the world.” OK…

WWE.com hypes “Scorpion King 2” featuring UFC Champ Randy Couture.

Also on WWE.com is a Randy Orton puff-piece from London (pre-injury).

The next blog update comes from the daughter of the Anvil, Natalya.
