-- AOL Fanhouse has an interview up with Charlie Haas, discussing for Pro Wrestling Xplosion at the Central Regional High School in Bayville, NJ on Saturday. He will be facing CW Anderson. He event is a benefit for Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
-- Madusa, who held the WWE Women's Championship on three occasions, is still competing in the monster truck circuit as she recently took part in the Monster Jam World Finals at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. In an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, she compares monster truck racing to professional wrestling, saying both industries are quite similar. However, she doesn't choreograph her moves not to mention that outcomes are not predetermined.
"You can't control trucks like you can control wrestlers," she said. Her racing career began in 1999 when a monster truck promoter wanted to capitalize on her wrestling fan base and have a woman racer. Despite racing only three months in each of her first five seasons, she won the freestyle championship in the 2004 World Finals and added the top racing title in 2005. "I've always been in man-dominated sports, and it took many years for a lot of the guys to accept me as being more than a gimmick," she said. "At first they just thought I was the chick from wrestling with big boobs. Then they saw how serious I was about racing."
When she's not racing, she keeps herself occupied with her pet store business in Ocala, Florida. To read the interview in its entirety, visit http://www.lvrj.com/
