More On Rob Van Dam-Iraq & Big WrestleMania Rumors Circulating The ‘Net

Ryan Clark

As you know by now, Rob Van Dam didn’t go to Iraq for the SmackDown tapings and had told Vince McMahon and others prior to the event that he wasn’t going. It’s being reported that the reason that RVD refused to go was not because of political reasons or for his safety, it’s just that he needed some time off from his WWE schedule.

– Trish Stratus was the 10th most searched athlete on AOL in 2004. Ahead of her was Kobe Bryant, Bam Margera, Michael Phelps, Lance Armstrong, Serena Williams, Anna Kournikova, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and Jackie Robinson.

Jim Ross’ birthday is on January 3rd, which falls on a Monday. Ironically enough, RAW is on Mondays and that’s when Jim Ross will be involved in a debate with Muhammad Hassan and Khosrow Davari. From the looks of it, it will be an embarrassing night for Jim Ross. It usually ends up being an embarrassing night in the WWE of it’s your birthday or if you’re in your hometown.

As reported here on the site over the weekend, Rumor is out that Steve Austin, Mick Foley and The Rock will be at WrestleMania 21 in some capacity. Hulk Hogan is also rumored to be at the show because he might be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Hogan will definitely be in the Hall of Fame one day, but it’s unsure when it will happen. As I said, I would only take this as a rumor for now and nothing more.
