-- R-Truth has confirmed via Twitter that he was hospitalized. We noted earlier here on the website that he is sidelined for two weeks due to walking pneumonia. He acquired it last week and went into convulsions while traveling. Thankfully, colleagues were by his side when he went into convulsions and rushed him to the hospital. Medics told him he was very lucky because oxygen wasn't getting to his brain and if he hadn't been hastily rushed to the hospital, he could have died.
-- Reby Sky, a 24-year-old Playboy model and September 2010 WrestlingInc.com Girl of the Month (pics) who hosts Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors on MTV2, wrote last night on Twitter that she has rejected a contract offer from World Wrestling Entertainment. "Weird day. Just had to turn down WWE (per my Lucha Libre USA contract). Very weird day," she wrote.
