  • Oscar De La Hoya has released his first public statement since news broke that he rejected the offer by World Wrestling Entertainment to appear at WrestleMania XXIV with Floyd Mayweather. “I donâ<80><99>t want to get involved with (pro wrestling), Iâ<80><99>m a fighter. My business is boxing. I know boxing. I donâ<80><99>t know wrestling. Iâ<80><99>m not a wrestler. Iâ<80><99>ve never trained to be a wrestler. So Iâ<80><99>m not going to go out there and think that I can wrestle. It was never in my plans.” De La Hoya and Mayweather will fight again this September in Las Vegas. Their first fight on May 5, 2007 was by far the best-selling Pay-Per-View event in history with over 2.4 million buys.
  • As previously reported, AAA is going to induct Eddy Guerrero into their hall of fame on 3/16 in Monterrey. AAA contacted Vickie Guerrero about accepting his plaque, but WWE refused to let her go. AAA contacted brother Hector Guerrero, but TNA pressured him into not going because they arenâ<80><99>t doing business with Konnan, who works in the AAA office. Instead, Eddyâ<80><99>s first cousin Javier Llanes (Llanes is Eddyâ<80><99>s motherâ<80><99>s maiden name), a wrestler from the 80â<80><99>s, will accept his plaque at Rey de Reyes.
