WWE News On Batista, Dusty Rhodes, Trish Stratus

Ryan Clark

Former WWE Champion Batista was a special guest on stage during the New York Pro bodybuilding show on May 20th. Kamali, who is also from the DC area, invited him up during his posing routine.

(Shacmasta sent this) I just managed to get my hands on the Dusty Rhodes and managers DVD sets. The Dusty DVD looks sweet. They list 25 matches not 15. Shopzone for some reason listed 15. The packaging for the Dusty DVD is very unique. They embedded a sound chip in the front of the DVD box, when pressed it plays 5 clips (3 short ones) of various Dusty sound bytes. The managers DVD unfortunately only has one disc and is packed with 4 Topps heritage cards. They also announced the release dates for future WWE DVDs in an insert packed with the managers DVD. A few we already know. Pillman 9/26, Hogan 4 disc 10/17/06, History of the WWE championship 9/5/06. The ones we haven’t heard. Piper’s DVD is slated for 11/07/06 and the AWA documentary, 11/21/06.

Today’s Toronto Star features an article on Trish Stratus including quotes by the WWE diva herself.

I went to buy WWE Backlash today on DVD. When I got home and opened the box there was an extra along with the DVD. It was a Chavo Guerraro heritage card. (Thanks to Amclakersfan2003)

I live in Louisville Ky, and there is a commercial going around for a SmackDown House Show June 24 at the Louisville Gardens. It says that Mark Henry will face Chris Benoit in a Submission match, and the main event is a Cage Match between JBL, Kurt Angle and Rey Mysterio for the title. Now that’s going to be interesting to see since JBL and Chris Benoit are gone for awhile. And since Angle is now a member of ECW. (Thanks to Ricky Cotton)
