WWE Diva Hurt, Smackdown News & JBL Saves OVW

Candice Michelle has been injured once again. She hurt her ankle about a week ago and is not expected to return until April.

Smackdown will tape its 500th episode on the 17th March in Corpus Christie, Texas. Wrestlers from all three brands are slated to appear, including Shawn Michaels, John Cena and Rey Mysterio, with the show being billed locally as “The Smackdown 500 Race to WrestleMania”.

JBL wrote in his latest WWE.com blog entry that he has become a financial investor in former WWE developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling, which was facing bankruptcy after losing its Louisville, Kentucky TV slot. He wrote “I am the sponsor of OVW, it is true. Danny Davis is my good friend and I hate to see anyone lose their dream. Danny has mortgaged his home to make this work; I mortgaged my home for Layfield Energy. I understand passion, I understand love. I believe in the American spirit, I believe that if you want to achieve, you can. My company is doing well, and I can promise you I don’t take one account or one customer for granted. I am going to sponsor what Danny is doing. It will be much more than just wrestling. Trust me; we are going to do some really cool things. This will unfold in the next few months, I have big plans for what we are doing. But for now, I am funding all of OVW, because I believe in what they are doing. One day I will tell all, but for now, I will say that I am doing what is right. I started in places like OVW; these places have to be protected. These places are sacred, and I don’t do this for nostalgia, I do it as a business decision. This is not just my BS plan to give back; I have a plan-believe me.”
