TOP OF WWE – Paul Heyman Returns to Raw
Paul Heyman made his return to WWE, appearing on screen this week on Raw for the first time since disappearing in December 2006, in the aftermath of a horrendous WWE/ECW December to Dismember PPV in which it became readily apparent that ECW could never be his “baby” in WWE. Heyman’s return was as the legal counsel for Brock Lesnar, and it is believed he will continue to make appearances throughout the year as Lesnar pops in and out of programming.
TOP OF TNA – Scott Steiner Still Ripping Hogan, TNA
Scott Steiner continues his verbal assault on both Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff on Twitter. While a lot of his complaints are likely to be valid, it very much comes off as sour grapes by a man who was let go from TNA not too long ago. Most likely, he is lobbying to get an angle to get back on the show. http://www.twitter.com/ScottSteiner.
TOP OF INDIES – Stacy Carter Returning to ECWA
Former WWE Women’s Champion “The Kat” Stacy Carter makes her return to the East Coast Wrestling Association on Saturday, June 2, 2012.
