Off The MainStream: 1st

Welcome to the first ever, Off The Mainstream. This section is specially dedicated on every Tuesday to cover minor news that involves personal talk of the town. They are like the deserts, and not the main dish and hopefully it suits your taste, once in a while.

First up! Hulk Hogan’s American Gladiators has been renewed for a second season. American Gladiators is a competitive television program that matched a cast of amateur athletes against each other, as well as against the show’s own “gladiators”, in contests of strength and agility. Hulk Hogan will start taping the new episodes in March of this year. The episodes will then begin airing in July.

Torrie Wilson has recently admitted on “The Weekly Spice Dish” that she had suffered from anorexic before. She also gave a brief update on her back condition and also lashed out on people who undermined wrestling. “‘Oh, it’s may be just a show. But everything we do is very physical and very athletic. You have to be an athlete. I just had four big shots in my back for a nerve block.”

Several TNA and WWE stars are reported in attendance for Brock Lesnar’s recent UFC debut. Those who were spotted on camera include the Undertaker, John “Bradshaw” Layfield, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Kurt Angle. In particularly, Kurt Angle and the Undertaker had a pretty long conversation. On a personal note, I am amazed by UFC overall performance. *Note* Their matches are not cooked.

Philly radio personality Chris Booker has been quoted as saying in recent Philadelphia Daily News that WWE has offered Philadelphia’s news anchor, Alycia Lane an on-air role with the company. Lane was recently arrested after being accused of assaulting a female police officer and was charged with one felony count of assault. Subsquently, she was fired from KYW-TV.

WrestlingMAT has learned that Stone Cold Steve Austin recently had his name changed legally. Steve Williams has legally changed his to Steve Austin due to copyrights, trademarks, and other financially motivated reasons. We believe it woud be easier for him as well to penetrate into the Hollywood with an established name.

About two weeks ago, WrestlingMAT has promised an update on Vince’s appearance on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice. You can view the teaser here and also Vince full boardroom appearance here.
