Diva Leaving?, HHH’s Original WM 27 Entrance Scrapped
— According to The PWTorch Newsletter, WWE originally planned for Triple H to ride a Clydesdale horse to the ring for his match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXVII.
During a test run however, the horse fell through the trap door on the WrestleMania stage, with Hunter riding it. The horse freaked out and went wild. Plans for HHH’s horseback ring entrance were immediately scrapped.
— The Wrestling Observer Newsletter Gail Kim is contemplating leaving WWE this year as her current contract expires in November and she has yet to sign a new one.
Company officials prefer that talent renew an expiring deal a year prior. When she re-signed with WWE in November 2008, it was for three years.
Kim is getting married later this year, which will factor into her decision.
We noted earlier that WWE Hall of Famer “Sunny” claimed earlier this week on her Facebook account that a WWE Diva is engaged to a chef on the Food Network. It’s being speculated that the engaged couple is Gail Kim and Robert Irvine, who appears on a variety of Food Network programs. Irvine sat with Kim at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday. You can click here to see a photo of the two together at the WWE Hall of Fame. Regarding the rumor, Kim commented on Twitter, “Why is every1 saying I’m married? Lol! P.s. I don’t talk about my personal life…thanks for the kindness and respect.”
