Share |


-- On the latest episode of "Pro Wrestling Talk Radio", the hosting panel conducted a 20-minute interview with WWE Tough Enough contestant and 2010 Miss USA Rima Fakih. She talks about a wide range of topics, such as growing up a wrestling fan and how she overcame bullies because of it, her experience on Tough Enough (how she really had to leave the show because of injuries caused by a fellow contestant and a judge), what Trish Stratus said to her when the cameras were off, her future in WWE, and her candid thoughts on the Divas of today. You can listen to the full interview by clicking here, it starts at the 38-minute mark.

-- WrestlingINC.com reader Ali Halabi sent us this report of what happened after RAW went off the air last night: After the Punk-Cena main event, Miz and R-Truth hit the ring. Punk and Cena cleaned the ring of them, and Del Rio threw Ricardo Rodriguez in the ring. Punk, who had Del Rio's scarf around his neck, waved it as if he was training a bull while the crowd chanting "Ole!" while Rodriguez charged at the scarf. Rodriguez eventually received the GTS from Punk, followed by the AA from Cena. Cena then raised Punk's arms in the air and they celebrated in the ring for awhile.

-- A commercial is airing for the RAW show in Kansas City, MO on September 26th advertising a John Cena vs. CM Punk in a "Champion vs Champion" match as the dark match.
