As noted earlier this morning here on the website, soon to be WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin has joined the cast of Sylvester Stallone’s new film “The Expendables” according to an article by Variety. “The Expendables” is an action film about a team of mercenaries who attempt to overthrow a South American dictator. Also starring in the film includes Mickey Rourke (of “The Wrestler” fame), Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Forest Whitaker and Charisma Carpenter.
I heard this yesterday, but more people are saying former WWE Diva Amy “Lita” Dumas has absolutely no plans to appear at WrestleMania XXV. As noted earlier, she’s personally e-mailed fans that have contacted her via The Luchagor’s official Myspace page (www.myspace.com/theluchagors13), saying the only thing she’s scheduled to do during WrestleMania weekend is appear at Booker T’s Legends of Wrestling Fanfest charity event on April 3rd. She also plugged her shows in Austin, Texas over the next few weeks, saying they’re free of charge. Dumas is still listed on www.bookertlow.com, so as long her name is there, she won’t be appearing at WrestleMania. Talent taking part in WWE’s festivities during WrestleMania weekend are prohibited from appearing at Booker T’s event.

The new WWE Encyclopedia released this past week by DK Publishing actually features a half-page profile (and photo) on Chris Benoit. There is no mention made of his death or murdering incident. The bio concludes with him losing the World Heavyweight Championship in 2004 and the following note: “but he was still a contender for major titles.”
As noted earlier tonight, new photos of WWE RAW diva Kelly Kelly and Chris Jericho partying have surfaced online. It should be noted that we have absolutely no proof that Chris and Kelly are a couple, but judging from the photos that were leaked on WrestleHeat.com, it is clear that something is going on. We haven’t heard anything of Chris Jericho breaking up from his wife Jessica. Jericho does have three kids. If you are interested, we just got a hold of three additional photos of Jericho and Kelly together. If you want to see all six photos, you can do so by clicking here.
