Backstage News on Sin Cara, Palumbo Not Interested in a WWE Return, Birthdays

– WWE Hall of Famer Hillbilly Jim turns 59 years old today while Nasty Boy Jerry Sags turns 47.

– Former WWE star Chuck Palumbo says he has no desire in returning to WWE. Palumbo currently operates his Garage Gym El Cajon, California as well as his custom motorcycle business and plays in his own band – 3 Spoke Wheel. He wrote on Twitter:

“I really appreciate you guys wanting me to come back and wrestle for @wwe i just don’t have the desire.. Thanks for the support!!!”

– There was a lot of speculation about Sin Cara on Monday’s RAW Supershow when he was quickly destroyed by Alberto Del Rio before their match. reports that there was nothing to it besides WWE wanting to beat Cara up since they were in Laredo, Texas – a city close to the border with a lot of Mexican fans and likely a lot of Cara fans.

    Sin Cara Sux, as well as Del Rio.. both boring wrestlers


    Bring back Palumbo and Gunn as Billy & Chuck that would be fabulous

    @Damien Pheonix the Vince Mcmahon is racist. Just not as racist as yofits makes him out to be.

  • JK

    LJ – Ultimo Dragon would have been successful if the WWE utilized him in a decent manner. They wasted his run and it’s a shame as he’s very talented. Remember him being one of my favorite wrestlers in WCW. We know how Vince was treating former WCW talents back around that time…

  • Soulshroude

    Ah yes… more bully tactics by the WWE toward Mexico.. ironic that a Mexican bully beats up a Mexican in a mask.

  • Sam Peters

    So finally cleared it up then Marc with your one from earlier on in the week 🙂

  • john

    You can’t write anything on negative about john cena!! so much for WWE being in touch with their fans

    Attitude era – 0

    Who are these people that want Chuck Palumbo back? Bob Holly fans???

  • dave

    i dont even understand how people have passion to get into the business at all. at least years ago there was new ground to be broken box office&ratings wise. then there was match quality standards that you could surpass. today who honeslty believes they can pass the commercial success of Austin era and the match quality level of HBK/bret. even easier things like hardcore stunt matches are maxed out.

  • Little Jimmy

    Sin Cara I’m sorry but to me he just reminds me of Ultimo Dragon when he had has run in the E. Hype but no substance, I can see him heading back to Mexico very soon.

  • Knightcon

    They wanted Del Rio to be a heel so they put him against a Mexican face

  • nick

    So to upset mexicans have a mexican beat up a mexican, smart!

  • Logan

    Damn Chuck sad to hear that, but whatever makes ya happy. I remember awhile back reading a story about Mike Knox becoming severely after being released. Being release from WWE kind F’s with your mind I guess.

  • Gorilla

    I dont blame palumbo it seems he is happy where he is in life, why ruin that returning when Vince will just give him a lame gimick.

  • Jimbo

    That was still one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. The crowd popped thinking it was Mysterio, then went dead silent when they saw it was Sin Cara.

  • mark

    I knew it all this bolux about WWE wanting to get rid of him. They have only just brought him back doh!!!

  • Damien Phoenix

    So beat up Sin Cara because they were in Texas? Sounds kinda racist

  • Bawb

    That’s kind of sad. All these people who lose their passion for this business. I’m not saying it is unusual for this or any other career, but damn–wrestling has such rigorous training and hard work. I’m surprised that if you’re going to push that far with that much passion to make it to the big show, that it’s still possible to lose it.
