— The latest issue of Power Slam reports John Hennigan (a/k/a John Morrison) has hinted to friends that he will return to WWE later this year. The former WWE Superstar stated during an interview with Poughkeepsie Journal last month that “the door is open” for him to return to the organization. “I left on really good terms with everybody and what I wanted to do was take time off to heal, get refreshed and take a little vacation. Shows like this are a fun show and a way to keep sharp. I really like wrestling. That’s why I do it,” Hennigan said of his match against Finlay for Northeast Wrestling. “I was working a 250-plus day a year schedule and I wanted to be refreshed. Right before I left, I felt like I was going to work. I wasn’t enjoying it as much as when I started. I’m excited to come to Poughkeepsie and do all this stuff. That’s the kind of attitude you need to have in sports entertainment.”
— As noted earlier here on the website, Miss USA and Tough Enough contestant Rima Fakih reached a plea deal with Michigan prosecutors in her DUI case Wednesday morning, hours before she was due to stand trial for her arrest on December 3, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan.
TMZ.com reports Fakih pled no contest to misdemeanor driving while visibly impaired and prosecutors agreed to drop the more serious charge of operating while intoxicated. Sentencing is scheduled for May 9, 2012. She faces up to 93 days in jail.
Authorities say Fakih was disoriented and was slurring her speech after she was pulled over for speeding and weaving through traffic in December. Her blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit and she had a half-empty bottle of wine on the floorboard behind the driver’s seat.
Fakih was on hand for numerous WrestleMania events in Miami, Florida two weeks ago, prompting speculation that she signed a contract with WWE. She later confirmed to German celebrity gossip website Promiflash.de that she has plans to wrestle for the sports entertainment organization.
