Nick Paglino

Former ECW Superstar Braden Walker (“Wildcat” Chris Harris) has posted a note on his official website,, saying he’s happy to be free from WWE. He posted the following:

Sept 9, 2008

Glad to be Free!

I wanted to send out a quick message to let everyone know that I am ok. Getting my release was the best thing that could have happened. If you could have seen the condition I was in every day you would understand. I now need to pick up the pieces, make myself better, and find my passion again. Thank you for the support and as soon as I can collect my thoughts you will hear from me again.


The Wrestling Observer is reporting that although Gail Kim has not officially signed a deal with WWE, she is definitely leaning more towards them as opposed to TNA. Kim left TNA on very good terms and enjoyed her time there, so she did go back to them to negotiate after WWE made their offer. Specifically, she sat down with TNA owner Dixie Carter, to see if they could work out a deal. The biggest issue is obviously money, as WWE is offering Kim much more than TNA can, and if TNA can’t come close to matching it, then it’s assumed she will eventually sign with WWE.

Roger Ebert has posted a great, albeit short, review of “The Wrestler,” which you can read at this link. Ebert said Mickey Rourke could win an Oscar nomination for a career best performance. Ebert will post a full review, with a star rating, when the movie hits theaters nation wide.
