Hulk claims he was supposed to wrestle John Cena at Wrestlemania: As part of his recent $50 million lawsuit against the clinic that did his back surgery, Hulk Hogan claims that their allegedly shoddy work prevented him from wrestling John Cena at Wrestlemania 25. TMZ reports: Hulk doesn’t explain why he’s suing for $50 million in the lawsuit — but Hulk’s legal team (headed by Wil Florin) tells TMZ, the reason for the massive sum is a lucrative “phase out contract” that was torpedoed by the bad surgeries. According to Hulk’s team, the contract outlined a blowout match between Hulk and Cena — a match that was supposed to be Hulk’s career ender — but thanks to the surgeries, it never happened. ___________________________________________________________ Bray Wyatt teases main roster debut: NXT star Bray Wyatt (formerly Husky Harris) has been teasing a main roster debut on Raw in recent days. One of his recent Tweets reads: “It takes millions of years for coal to become a diamond, It’ll take me 30 seconds on #Raw to bring the world to its knees. -Bray Wyatt” Although he has been out with an injury the development of the Louisiana Preacher/Cult leader gimmick is very compelling. ___________________________________________________________ Sunny returning to the ring?: Original WWE Diva Tammy “Sunny” Sytch revealed on Twitter that she’s training to return to the ring. She wrote yesterday: “Training for the Farewell Tour. NY, CT, CA, NJ booked whos next? 1originaldiva@gmail.com for SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY” Considering she’s not a wrestler we can assume she’ll either be valeting for her boyfriend or making some kind of appearance. ___________________________________________________________ Why HBK and Steve Austin weren’t at Raw: It’s believed the reason why WWE moved the focus of Monday’s Raw 20th Anniversary off the legends, was because Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels had prior commitments. Austin wrote on Twitter: “Hitting the hay in Las Vegas. Hope RAW was a fun show. I was already booked here at the Shot Show in Vegas, as I am every year. #hunting” Shawn Michaels was with the Rattlesnake at the convention. Here’s a photo backstage of two legends that did make it:
