I’m sick to my stomach about a couple of things, and I want to address them. First, I get some emails today asking me if I’m one of the WWE Divas that “a number of WWE sources” claim are using drugs. Where did that information come from? Where did that quote come from? Wrestling websites. So I want to address those wrestling websites…
My mom is a wrestling fan. My nieces and nephews are wrestling fans. I have many girls and young women who look up to me. I do not, and have not ever violated the wellness program, even before it existed. For those who do not know, I used to work in the medical field. I know that the drugs that unnamed WWE Divas are accused of taking can cause anything from sudden death to organ failure to serious lifelong medical conditions. It’s irresponsible to suggest to young women that they need to take drugs to look like a WWE Diva. We all have serious diet and training regimens. My trainer has trained over 100 professional athletes, and I train as hard as any of them. That’s what it takes to look like a Diva. So I am giving three options to any website that suggested that any of the WWE Divas have violated the wellness program.You can choose any one:
1)Print a retraction and apology to the WWE Divas.
2) Produce any of your “number of WWE sources”
3) Contact WWE. Pay my WWE appearance fee. I will take a polygraph test saying what I have just previously stated. And if I fail, not only will I reimburse you for the WWE appearance fee, but I will donate $10,000 to your favorite charity.
And to any website that made that false claim that doesn’t either want to apologize, pony up your source, or put your money where your mouth is, I say this…I will never grant an interview with you. I will go out of my way to make sure that no other WWE talent ever grants an interview with you. And I will make it my mission that should any indepedent worker ever grant an interview with you, should they make it to the WWE, they will get the most brutal “welcome to the bigs” in the history of sports entertainment.
Okay Gang, we’re only halfway home. Here’s my other rumor killer. Over the past couple of days, many, many fans and gamers have emailed me and asked if it were true that I asked not to be on the WWE video game, because I was left off for the third year in a row. This is absolutely incorrect. I have been with the company for seven years. I was on the game four years ago. I thought it was one of the coolest experiences of my life. You don’t have to be a gamer to appreciate this, but it helps, but imagine how cool it is to play “you” in a video game. Your features, your moves. You! It was awesome. And you get paid for it too!
So would I request not to be on the game again? Heck no! Bottom line, I can’t explain why I’m not on the game. I appreciate both your outrage and support.
Thanks for listening to my rant…I needed that…
