Edge appearing next week in Toronto: WWE Hall of Famer Edge will be making a one off appearance on next week’s Raw from Toronto, Canada. He wrote on Twitter… “Comin back home to #Raw and Toronto next Monday. Raw gets Rated R. That’s good for business. See ya next week Edgeheads, bring your earplugs” He’ll likely be plugging his Syfy show Haven. RAW injury news: Fandango broke his nose during a match with The Miz on last night’s RAW. It occurred after he took a stiff boot to the face. Cody marrying former ring announcer: WWE’s Cody Rhodes is marrying former developmental ring announcer and model Brandi Reed this week. She wrote on Twitter… “Tonight I relax with a bottle of vino… tomorrow begins the official countdown to the best day of my life.” Former announcer fond of his WWE run: Former ring announcer Sean Mooney said he looked back in fondness at his time in WWE during the early 90s… “I left because I just wanted to try something else, and the company was changing, you know? Financially they weren’t doing great and who knows, he might have decided to cut me loose when my contract was up anyway. But I made the decision before that and I think that’s why people started thinking, ‘what the hell happened to Sean Mooney?’ Because how could he walk away from that and disappear which to them I did. But for that period of time, I cherished that and it really upset me that there was some report saying that when I worked in new in New York that I tried to hide that from my resume. How the hell would you do that? When I was with the WWF, it aired all over the world. Was I gonna just say that wasn’t me? No, plus I was very thankful to Vince McMahon for everything he gave me and the opportunities I got. When I started to anchor at WWR in New York, Vince even sent me a telegram to say congratulations. Because he was happy that a WWF guy was broadcasting news in New York.” When he first debuted: “New Haven, Connecticut was my first live event and I remember walking backstage and Mr Fuji and Ax and Smash, Demolition, were playing cribbage in full costume at this table. I’m looking at this thinking, ‘What have I stepped into?’ But there were some people there who thought you’re either in or you’re an outsider. I’m telling you, that first year was really tough because they would have a different language, you know you’d walk in, the guys would be talking and suddenly they’re speaking carny you know and it took me a year of just taking it and they put it to me. I’ll tell you, and this is why Lord Alfred Hayes and I became so close, Alfred and Gorilla, or Gino as we called him, took me under their wing and I would just take it from the guys but those two guys took me under their wing and just taught me the ropes and took care of me. Then after a year, that was it, I was in. Once that happens you’re in for life.” Respecting Hulk Hogan: “Rocky had come out, it was just insane. They had a show on, like the Top 50 Superstars, recently and Hulk was like 25 or something and you’re like WHAT?! I mean Really? Unless you’re just mad at him, how in the world could you…. no matter what went on with them… how do you not make him at least top 5, are you kidding me? All of wrestling owes a debt to him for what he did. By the time I got there, he was a superstar. Making money that was just unheard of.” Rayne gives birth to daughter: Congrats to former TNA Knockout Madison Rayne who gave birth to a baby daughter this week. She announced on Twitter… “So guess what?! This week @Reaper_3 and I became parents!!!! Life = amazing beyond words!!! Our little girl is happy and healthy at home!!!”
