* Mark Henry & Bobby Lashley aren’t the only black wrestlers Michael Hayes has had racial incidents with. One source says Hayes has made similar comments to former WWE wrestler & current TNA star Booker T as well. In Lashley’s case, it was one of the reasons he decided to leave the company.
* BostonHerald.com has a story on Roger Clemens making a pass at the wife of former WWE star Brutus “The Barber Beefcake 18 years ago. Barbara Leslie was working as a waitress (and hadn’t met her husband yet), and Clemens was married at the time. Clemens followed her into her off-limits dressing room and said, “What would you do if I tried to kiss you?” Barbara Leslie replied, “What would your wife say if you tried to kiss me?”
* The new issue of Rolling Stone Magazine with the girls from “The Hills” on the cover features an article about a high-end escort service in Los Angeles, California. The escort service is run by a woman named “Nici” who would set up beautiful women (Playboy Playmates, Maxim and FHM models, porn stars) with rich clients who would pay up to $25,000 a night for their “services”.
The escort service was busted by the FBI, and the Rolling Stone article lists the names of several of Nici’s escorts – one of whom is WWE Diva Ashley Massaro. There is a picture of Ashley in the article and she’s listed as a WWE star and Playboy cover girl.
It’s important to note that there was no explicit implication that Ashley ever had sex for money. We are simply stating the facts – that she was among the women involved in the high-priced escort service.
