Various News: Scott Armstrong Gets Ribbed, WWE-MTV Hype
-- Steve Fernandes sent this one in: In what is probably a first, Scott Armstrong was a victim of wrestling rib played out on Twitter. It started when he was telling people on his twitter (@ScottArmstrong_) to follow Kane (@GlenKaneJacobs) and that it was a real account, going as far as saying that he spoke to him on the phone, so he knows it's really him. A few hours later, he noted "I'm sorry everyone. I was the victim of a bad joke that went viral! My fault, I'm sorry! Joke played on me by someone I care about so they will remain nameless but sorry u guys all went on the ride with me! NOT REAL KANE. My bad!" Later he added, in response to a tweet "Yes, a rib from 1 of the boys!!!! LOL"
-- Greg Price sent this one along: I just wanted to ask you guys to help brighten the spirits of one of our good friends and wrestling heroes, Sir Oliver Humperdink. Hump is hospitalized in Minneapolis awaiting more surgery. He has some issues that have delayed the surgery a couple times and I'm sure he could use all the support and encouragement we can muster. Won't you please take a few minutes out of your day to drop a card with some words of support? Please mail to:
