News on CM Punk, Torrie Wilson, and Rosita
– More on Torrie Wilson’s new reality show: Former WWE Diva Torrie Wilson is joining Tony Lister, better known as former WWE wrestler Zeus, as well as Lorenzo Lamas and Rudy Reyes for a new reality TV show which will be taped for the Reelz cable network. Titled The Z Team, the series will follow the group “contracted by law enforcement agencies and concerned citizens all across the country to confront real life and death situations on the streets of America. The Z Team, relying on years of experience fighting bad guys on the big screen, in the ring and in real life take on drug dealers, the mob and dirty politicians…no case is too much for them.”
– TNA Knockout Thea Trinidad – better known to fans as Rosita – was featured on the NBC special “Children of 9/11” last week as her father Michael was trapped in the 103rd floor of the World Trade Center when the tower collapsed. She was only 10 at the time and never got to speak to her father
when he called to say goodbye to his ex-wife, her mother. Trinidad did not attend the 9/11 ceremony in New York held yesterday at Ground Zero but opted to honor the memory of her dad by working the TNA No Surrender pay-per-view. She credits her father of being the inspiration of getting in the ring. “When I’m there I think of him every single time. I can see him in the front row. I know he’s there,” she said. She appeared – but did not wrestle – in an interview segment prior to the main event on yesterday’s pay-per-view. (thanks to Colin Vassallo)
– Ottawa’s WWE fans getting Punked. From the article: “There are some people who think CM Punk would have been a mid-carder in the Attitude Era. They have this predetermined assessment of me,” said Punk. “I don’t know if it’s jealousy. I don’t have six-pack abs and I can’t benchpress 400 pounds. I can’t believe I have to step over people to get their attention. They have an antiquated way of seeing things.
