-- The mother of Total Divas star JoJo, Alexie Offerman, spoke to Divas-365.com about her daughter, Justin Gabriel, the E! reality show and WWE. During the interview, she reveals that her daughter has her sights set on capturing the Divas Championship.
"From the very first day of training, she came home and said to me, “Oh my God mom, I found home away from home, I love the feeling of wrestling and its challenges!” said Offerman. "For 6 weeks this little girl couldn’t get roughed up enough!! Let me let you in on something – after filming the first 8 episodes of Total Divas, her and Eva Marie went back to training at NXT from 9 to 5 on a daily basis. She was ecstatic about all the moves she was learning from Sara Del Rey, then the news came that Total Divas was picked up for 6 more episodes and while she was happy for the extension of the show, she was also disappointed for the interruption of her daily training!! Yes she has expressed to us how much she loves the Ring and how she would love to someday/some year earn the Championship Belt!! She just turned 19… Stay tuned!"
-- One year ago today, Jerry "The King" Lawler experienced a near fatal episode as scarily collapsed during a live episode of RAW in Montreal. It was widely reported that Lawler had suffered a heart attack, but he clarified in an interview last spring that he went through Sudden Cardiac Arrest, which according to the Mayo Clinic, “usually results from an electrical disturbance in your heart that disrupts its pumping action, stopping blood flow to the rest of your body.”
Lawler remarked on the one year anniversary of the occasion this morning via Twitter. He wrote, "Thanks for all the thoughts & prayers from everyone about cardiac arrest 1 year ago today...thank God & Doc Sampson everything is fine now!"
