Thanks to Ranjit Chahal for his help with some of the following newsbits:
-- Maria Kanellis was approached by Playboy magazine to pose nude when she was just 19 years of age. However, the former WWE Diva opted against the idea because she did not want to humiliate her younger sister, who was still in school at the time. She posed for the magazine in 2008 after her sister had reached a certain age. As noted last week, Maria is open to posing nude for the magazine again.
-- If you're hoping to see Edge returning to WWE any time soon, you're in for a disappointment. The former World Heavyweight Champion will be spending at least five months in Nova Scotia this year. Edge is heading there to film episodes of Haven, which airs on the SyFy network. He's said to be receiving a bigger role this season.
-- You can email me (Ryan Clark) at Webmaster@ProWrestlingSCOOPS.com. If you've got a newsbit please pass it along. We'll try to confirm it and then post it here on the website with credit to you.
-- As noted earlier here on the website, Ryback talked about the ex-wife of John Cena on Twitter earlier this week and it gained the attention of the internet wrestling community. Fans started noticing that the WWE star had become a lot more vocal on the social media website. Strangely enough, that tweet and all of his other ones were removed. Ryback has tweeted the following after deleting previous tweets:
"If you have something worth fighting for you have to fight for it. Being bred to b scared is the problem. Rules will be broken. #RybackRules"
