— We noted earlier that The Sun in the UK is featuring an interview with current WWE Champion CM Punk where he speaks at length about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his renewed involvement with WWE. Note: The actual article is no longer appearing on The Sun website. A quick Google search revealed quotes from other sources including thesmackdownhotel.com. “Rock being back, I guess, puts a lot of eyes on our product. In that respect it’s a good thing. I have a lot of pride in what I do, and I’m proud of the WWE, and their superstars and divas that are on the road 365 days a year. It’s a very cold business, it’s a very ‘what have you done for me lately?’ business. When somebody walks in and gets afforded opportunities that people are in line for and people are busting their ass for, you’re damn right I’m going to get p****d off about it. It’s only logical; it isn’t sour grapes. It isn’t whining. It’s a fact. I said it, I was vocal about it. I said it to his face. That’s just the kind of guy I am. Listen, if I disappear for 5-8 years and I come back, I only hope there is someone as angry and as hungry, with a chip on their shoulder, just like me, to tell me the same thing: ‘Hey, I can do everything you’re doing, and I’m doing it every day.’ I don’t hate The Rock, I don’t hate Dwayne. There honestly aren’t any hard feelings, there’s nothing anything personal. It has motivated me to work harder and to prove everybody wrong. That’s what I do.”
— WWE hall of famer and best selling author Jesse Ventura encouraged wrestling fans to vote for former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson for president this fall. Johnson is the Libertarian Party nominee. “I encourage wrestling fans out there, have some guts, don’t vote for a Democrat or a Republican, vote for Gary Johnson for President.”
