Jeff Hardy's Home Destroyed in Fire

17 March 2008 - 06:50 PM

Jeff Hardy's home destroyed by fire
By: Corey Clayton
Written: March 16, 2008

Superstar and former Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy lost his Cameron, N.C., home to fire late Friday night.

Hardy was not at home at the time of the blaze. His home is being reported as a total loss.

At this time, the Superstar has been unavailable for comment on the incident.

News reports state that Moore County Fire Department officials currently list the cause of the fire as "undetermined." Fire department officials also stated that foul play is not being investigated, as Hardy reportedly told investigators that he did not have insurance on his home.

On his personal blog, Raw commentator Jim Ross reported that Jeff's brother, Matt, saw smoke coming from Jeff's home late Friday night and was able to confirm that no one was home, but was too late to do anything to save the house. Read J.R.'s blog post

Jeff Hardy is currently serving a 60-day suspension for a second violation of the WWE's Substance Abuse and Drug Testing Policy.

Bobby Lashley Quits WWE?

23 January 2008 - 05:10 PM

According to Bobby Lashley's official website (BobbyLashleyOnline.com), Lashley is quitting WWE. Posters on his site's message board were predicting his return date when he posted this on Monday night:

I'm sorry all but there will not be a Bobby Lashley return to the WWE.

Many fans didn't believe Lashley, thinking the poster was using a fake account or trying to cover up when he was returning to not spoil the storyline. He then posted this Tuesday morning:

I am sorry to everyone here but I am serious when I say I won't be back. Everyone wants to come here and hear the real story and I am telling you the real story. Circumstances which are out of my control left me no decision but to leave the WWE. I can't go into details of this now but like I said before sometimes people will hate you personally and try to destroy you which has happened here. Evil has prevailed however like I said before if you continue your struggle doors will open around these people. You have not scene the last of me so please don't stop your support. Add Bobby Lashley to the list of RECENTLY RELEASED!


Fans kept disbelieving him until he posted this on Tuesday night:

I feel like there is no reason to come to this chat room any more if nobody listens to me. People this is Bobby Lashley and I am serious, no surprises. I just wanted to be the first to tell all the people who supported me. [which he followed up 3 minutes later with] My release from the WWE will probably be online soon, maybe by the end of the week.


The site admin told everyone that the poster actually was Lashley and to listen to him, he's telling the truth. Many beleived it until around 1:00 a.m. this morning, he posted again

I am pretty torn on what to do next. Please can i get some input from all of you�



WWE still hasn't commented on whether or not Lashley is gone. I'm wondering if Lashley got busted for steroids and is trying to cover it up by quitting. He was injured back when all those people got busted in late Summer.

Ring of Honor Partners with Smashing Pumpkins

17 January 2008 - 09:50 PM

ROH & Smashing Pumpkins Reach Partnership
Wednesday, January 16, 2008

Ring Of Honor is pleased to announced that it has reached a partnership with Grammy award winning artists The Smashing Pumpkins for a cross promotion.

"Doomsday Clock" off The Smashing Pumpkins' latest album "Zeitgeist" will be prominently featured on the ROH "Undeniable" pay-per-view. "Undeniable" will debut on January 18th with replays throughout the rest of January on iN DEMAND, The DISH Network and TVN cable systems.

In addition, the melodic tones of "Doomsday Clock" provide the backdrop for an exclusive ROH video released by The Smashing Pumpkins. Check out the action of ROH at:

You can also read the news piece at SmashingPumpkins.com and access the video at: http://www.smashingp...s.com/news_2924

"As a long time fan of Ring of Honor, I am thrilled that our song 'Doomsday Clock' has been chosen to be the theme music for the newest PPV," Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan said. "To me, the highlight video captures the intensity, passion, and stark ambition that is at the core of this groundbreaking promotion, as they continue to set new standards of what is still possible in the impossible."

The Smashing Pumpkins and ROH will also giveaway a signed discography worth $299.00 at ROHwrestling.com. There will be news on the giveaway soon in the ROHwrestling.com Newswire at ROHwrestling.com.

"Doomsday Clock" provides the perfect song for the hard-hitting, high-flying, intense action of ROH. Check it out now on The Smashing Pumpkins' latest album "Zeitgeist" now available in stores everywhere and on Itunes.


This is really cool for ROH. I remember back when I followed ROH they only music they used was shitty techno Rob Feinstein probably made himself (he was WAY into techno, that's where Special K came from...he was also flaming gay). Corgan made appearances with ECW a few times, so maybe he'll make an appearance at ROH.

Boba Fett Confirmed for Star Wars Live Action TV Series

15 January 2008 - 09:59 PM

Star Wars TV Show: Boba Fett Confirmed
Producer says Fett is "instrumental" to the live-action series.

January 14, 2008 - Like most projects developed under the Star Wars name, hard facts about the plotline for the upcoming Star Wars live-action TV series have been hard to come by. However, in a new interview with the Star Wars Insider magazine, producer Rick McCallum reveals one big detail: Boba Fett will be a part of the series.

It had already been revealed that the show will take place within the 20 year gap in-between Revenge of the Sith and the original Star Wars (A New Hope), but as to what characters would be featured in it, all George Lucas had said was that it would not star any of the main characters from the films. However, as it had been revealed that it could feature peripheral characters from the film series, many fans had speculated that the ever-popular Boba Fett would be a prime candidate. Then last year, the first (and to this point only) promotional image from the series, shown at Toy Fair, displayed Fett's iconic helmet, which of course only fueled rumors he would be on the show.

McCallum clears up the rumors, telling Star Wars insider "The series will be about brand new characters, a group of people we haven't seen yet, except Boba Fett, who will be an instrumental part of it. The series will also showcase other bounty hunters."

McCallum says the series is about "what happens to an empire. It's a much darker, much more character-based thing. It's not as plot-driven [as the movies]." McCallum notes that the challenge they're facing at Lucasfilm is making the show "look like a feature on a television budget, with all new characters, new environments, new planets, and trying to keep the storyline alive for a lot of people."

Also revealed in the interview is that four artists have been working on designs for the show, including Erik Tiemens, who worked on Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. McCallum also says "We have two great writers from England, one from Australia, and three from the United States," but doesn't name who they are. A planned writers' meeting in November had to be scrapped due to the writers' strike but McCallum says that when it does occur it will be "in order to develop the 'bible' for the characters, in other words who they are and where they're going to go, along with some of the story ideas. We're going to try and hash out the first three or four episodes."

McCallum says they hope to have the first scripts by February, but with no idea when the writers' strike will end, that seems highly questionable. However, it's worth noting that Lucasfilm is said to be considering making an independent deal with the Writers Guild of America in the same manner that David Letterman's Worldwide Pants, United Artists and The Weinstein Company have all done. If that occurs, it would almost certainly allow scripts to progress on Star Wars, even if the strike continues. McCallum tells Star Wars Insider they hope to be shooting by the end of 2008 or early in 2009. The live-action series is expected to premiere by the end of 2009, following this fall's debut of the new animated Clone Wars series.

The Boba Fett confirmation will now of course lead to the next round of speculation: Who will play him? An actor new to the role or someone we've seen before? Considering the series spans 20 years -- and no one knows if stories will be told chronologically, or leap back and forward in time-- it's certainly possible for either Daniel Logan (Attack of the Clones' young Boba) or Temuera Morrison (Jango Fett) to play the character, or in fact for both of them to, if the show follows the character through two different periods in his life, a la George Lucas' Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.


I really hope this show is more like Star Wars 4-6 and the opposite of 1-3
