— Former WWE talent Scott Hall announced last week that he would not be on hand for this weekend’s WrestleMania XXVII festivities in Atlanta, Georgia because the atmosphere would be detrimental to his quest to stay sober. CM Punk took to Twitter to praise Hall for his efforts.
“Is it true that Scott Hall didn’t attend the HOF due to it being a situation that threatened his sobriety?” he wrote last night. “If so this needs to be commended.”
— As noted earlier here on the website, former WWE Women’s Champion Lita appeared at yesterday’s WrestleMania Axxess session on behalf of Project 9-6-1, an Atlanta based radio station. According to a fan who met her, she didn’t appear too happy to be there — unlike the other stars who appeared.
“She was clearly not happy about being there,” a fan who met her wrote. “While she smiled for pictures you could just tell she was ready to get out. When it was my turn I asked her if she missed this and she said ‘not really.”
— Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson came through on his promise to award WrestleMania XXVII tickets to lucky fans. At noon Central time, he tweeted, “Go to corner of Northside and Ivan Allen – Exxon gas station. Go to the entrance door and shout “I Bring It”.. I’ll see you and come out..” Within minutes he was swarmed by fans and gave out the tickets as promised.
