Even More Playboy/Diva News, Phoenix Not On RAW, Vince, More

The WWE Women's Champion Beth Phoenix did not appear on RAW last night. She did not appear on Heat or in a dark match either. RAW was held in Buffalo, NY last night, and Beth Phoenix is billed from Buffalo. Considering that WWE is building her up to be a big monster heel in the women's division, it would have been counterproductive to have her go out there and likely get a large babyface reaction from the hometown crowd.


SilverVision.co.uk is listing last week's segment on RAW of Vince McMahon naming the greatest Superstar in RAW history as the lone DVD extra on the Armageddon 2007 DVD. Also, the BBC out of the U.K. has classified the upcoming "Stone Cold" Steve Austin DVD and listed the contents. It appears that the DVD will be similar to the Undertaker DVD & the first Shawn Michaels DVD where they recap the storyline at the time and then show the big match. If that's the case, then there won't be a documentary on the DVD. It doesn't look the DVD will be featuring too many extras as there is not too many items listed. For the extras they're only listing his SummerSlam 1996 Free-For-All match with Yokozuna, a confrontation with Terry Funk on Shotgun Saturday Night in January 1997, his WrestleMania 22 "Gladiator" commercial, an appearance on SNME, and something regarding Vince McMahon. The DVD set will be three discs and it's scheduled to be released on Feb 12, 2008.


Mr. Kennedy continues to look dismal in the media regarding steroid use in pro wrestling. In an interview with the Charleston Post-Courier, Kennedy admitted to being linked the Signature Pharmacy investigation, and recently being suspended by WWE. Kennedy used the excuse of "I had a legitimate medical reason to have it (steroids)." In the interview, the legitimate excuse Kennedy refers to is his 2005 torn lat injury. The problem for Kennedy is that he was still receiving packages as of February 2007, the month the pharmacy was raided.
