-- WWE has confirmed that John Cena’s Monday appearance on syndicated talks how “Live with Kelly & Michael” was pre-taped on Friday. Cena will be there to talk about WWE’s partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Cena also lets hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan test their skills as WWE Superstars by letting them cut promos and try out finishing moves. Apparently there is also some sort of WrestleMania challenge between Cena and Strahan. Strahan and the New York Giants defeated Cena’s team the New England Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl and that was discussed on the show. Since the appearance was pre-taped, Cena won’t have to fly from New York to California on Monday for RAW.
-- Below is a recap of Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty's appearance at the Big Event Wrestling Convention in New York on Saturday:
Kevin Cruz sent this one in:
The main guest was Shawn Michaels. If you purchased a VIP ticket, you were allowed to get a picture and an autograph of The Rockers. I been to many signings and this was done very well and it was a easy going atmosphere. The were doing a number system so your place was always intact so you were free to roam around and see the other wrestlers and come back to meet HBK.
The other wrestlers in attendance were Hernandez, The Beautiful People, Madison Rayne, Chris Masters, The Godfather, Big Daddy V, Mayrse, Maria, Winter, Ivelisse, Stevie Richards, Stacy Carter, Terri Runnels, Saturn, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Jay Lethal, The Young Bucks, Sonjay Dutt, Davari, Paul London, Brian Kendrick, Lex Luger, The Genius, Buff Bagwell, The Killer Bees, Tony Garea, Mike Bennett, Mike Knox, and Luke Gallows (I may have missed one or two). Each of those wrestlers was easy going and interacting with every one they met.
I went in to meet Shawn and it was done in a room and Marty Jannetty was right there next to him. Around the time I went, it was mostly for Shawn, and Marty knew that and he was relaxing and laying down on the table laughing but talking with everyone that came in. We spoke for a bit and then meeting Shawn was great. I wasn't rushed. He spoke to me and took a picture. Marty would sneak in for a few pics with other people and it looked like he was having a ball. All in all, it was a packed event and it was done very well.
