* Former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler lobbied hard to do a topless scene in the movie Mercy, an upcoming film by writer Scott Caan, but director Patrick Hoelck nixed the idea. Hoelck soon changed his mind and okayed the scene with Keibler, but Keibler nixed the idea herself. Keibler was then dropped from the film altogether. The role has since been given to a “no-name” actress.
* At last Tuesday’s SmackDown taping, a fan jumped the barricade and punched one of the Edgeheads. Chavo Guerrero’s bodyguard Bam Neely jumped in and pummeled the guy before security arrived to break it up. Had the show been live, the incident probably would have been visible on camera, but WWE managed to completely edit it out of Friday’s broadcast.
* The recently released Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry book has an account from a former WWE writer claiming that Stephanie McMahon would “relentlessly” badmouth her brother Shane McMahon to pretty much anyone who would listen during his time in the company. The former WWE writer also notes that Stephanie can be really confrontational at times. Here is the passage from the book concerning this:
“Stephanie’s not as smart as she thinks she is,” says one former WWE writer. “You can’t tell her a damn thing; she was confrontational about her stupidity, like coming up to you and saying ‘I know you think I don’t deserve this job!’ To be honest, put fake (breasts) on a rattlesnake and that’s Stephanie. She’s a conniving little (c-word) who I personally saw bury her brother Shane relentlessly to people in the industry, I mean just (expletive) all over her own brother. She’s disgusting; she’s got that Lady Macbeth ego to her.”
