JP at the Selvedge Yard has a piece on Andre the Giant and his legendary drinking habits. It features a reprint of Richard English’s “Do You Have A Favorite Drunkard” and some cool pictures of Andre posing with everyone from Jimmy Snuka to Blondie’s Debbie Harry.
The Bleacher Report’s Jev makes the case that Chyna is the greatest female wrestler ever. Part of that argument is that she was a pioneer for working with men and holding the Intercontinental Championship.
PWI’s Steven Fernandez reports that the August 7th WWE house show in Denver has been changed to a super show, to make up for that whole “double booking the Pepsi Center with the Nuggets” thing. The following matches have been advertised:
*Triple H vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Championship in a Steel Cage Match
*CM Punk vs. Jeff Hardy for the World Heavyweight Championship in a Rocky Mountain Ladder Match
*Tommy Dreamer vs. Christian for the ECW Championship in an Extreme Rules Match
*Kofi Kingston vs. The Miz vs. MVP vs. Carlito for the US Championship in a Fatal Four Way Match
In other WWE house show news, Fernandez reports that Jeff Hardy is listed as appearing at the Smackdown/ECW TV taping on October 6th. Card subject to change seems to apply there.
WWE.com also has a profile of DDP, which is kind of surprising given how his run there worked out. It focuses on how his work ethic helped him become a star at an advanced age.
WWE has added “Morning Madness”, a private autograph session with a WWE superstar, to their Wrestlemania travel packages.
