Found December 28, 2012 on Wrestling Truth:
Names discussed for Hall of Fame: The Rock, Mick Foley, Harlem Heat and The Nasty Boys, have all been considered for the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame according to the Wrestling Observer. Because the Ceremony is taking place at Madison Square Garden in New York City, the company are looking at names who have a connection to the area. The Rock debuted at the Garden in 1996, Harlem Heat was obviously a New York-based gimmick, and the Nasty Boys, who actually come from Allentown, Pennsylvania, were billed from “The Streets of New York City” during their WCW run. Foley of course if from the New York area and famously hitchhiked to the Garden to see Jimmy Snuka and Don Muraco in the cage. Although WWE have gone above and beyond to try and get Bruno Sammartino to accept an induction, as of now he’s rejected the offer. ___________________________________________________________ Raw rating lowest in 15 years: Although holiday episodes of WWE Raw naturally draw lower ratings than usual, this year’s episode was the lowest rated show in 15 years. The 2.2 cable rating is the lowest number since March 3rd, 1997, which was a special broadcast of a house show from Germany. ___________________________________________________________ Michelle McCool discusses working with Sharmell: Continuing her shoot interview with the former WWE Diva discussed working with Sharmell… The Dearest Friend: “I absolutely love her to death. She’s like a sister to me. I think she is so beautiful, inside and out. We clicked right away; she was on SmackDown the whole time that I was. We became instant friends — we just hit it off since day one and our friendship just grew from there.” King Booker & Queen Sharmell: “She’s a great actress [...] I remember just being in awe: I was watching a backstage segment between she and King Booker at the time, and they were hilarious on screen as it is — I’ve always enjoyed watching them. But, I remember the camera counting down: 3… 2… 1… and her just going into her character. I was truly in amazement! I was like: “Wow! She’s good, and I wish I was half as good as her.” [...] She is a true entertainer, great in all forms of the word. I think she brought a lot to Booker’s character at the time, and they just fed off each other so well.” Long Live the Queen: “I love her to death. I can’t say enough kind things about her. She’s one of the smartest, most intelligent people I’ve ever met in my entire life. Love her and her entire family dearly.” Let Them Eat Cake: “She’s just one of those people that you could trust with your life, and I have. She was always there when you needed her: when you needed to laugh, when you needed an ear — whatever you needed! I know I can always count on her. For that, I will be eternally grateful. She has just blessed the world by being here and that amazing of a person. I love her, love, love, love with all my heart.” ___________________________________________________________ John Cena and Daniel Bryan with the Bellas: Here is a photo of John Cena and Daniel Bryan spending Christmas with former WWE Divas the Bella Twins.
