“The Raging Bull” Manny Fernandez is scheduled for surgery due to suffering a blood clot in the brain last Monday, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The 52 year old has been suffering from liver failure as well the last few years. We wish “The Raging Bull” all the best in his recovery.

Writers Alex Greenfield and Dusty Rhodes first pitched the idea of Mr. Kennedy winning the Wrestlemania Money in the Bank ladder match back in August.

Five million people checked out WWE’s web site between March 31st and April 2nd.

Melina vs. Mickie James and Chris Benoit vs. MVP will be matches for the 4/29 Backlash PPV card.

Speaking of the WWE’s women division, the decision for Melina to go over on Ashley at Wrestlemania was due to Playboy covergirl’s attitude in becoming more difficult to deal with. Ashley’s heat opened the door to Mickie James regaining her spot.
