TMZ.com cameras caught up with Chris Jericho this week, who had some choice words for President Barack Obama. When asked, “You’re a wrestler, so do you think you have better abs than Barack Obama?”, Jericho responded, “As of right now I have better abs … but pretty soon he’s gonna take 65% of my abs away from me and give ‘em to somebody else.” Jericho also said he plans to pull Mickey Rourke over the guardrail at WrestleMania and punch him in the face in front of 70,000 people. You can see the video clip at TMZ.com.
– One former WWE creative team member tells the Pro Wrestling Torch Newsletter that the Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy feud will likely be a short one. The source said, “The fact that they’re doing a gimmick match (at WrestleMania 25) tells me that this is it,” he said. “They won’t be going to SummerSlam like Bret and Owen (Hart).”
– Earlier this month, we reported that Brooke Hogan performed at a music festival in Miami, Florida and was shown dancing on a stripper pole. Hulk Hogan, who attended the performance, recently spoke to Life and Style magazine about the performance: “I try to make it to as many of Brooke’s performances as possible. I support her and everything that she does. I’d watch my daughter perform no matter what she does.”
