Top Hollywood Stars Wearing Former Diva’s Shoe, Ryder Outdoes The Rock

— Popular entertainment website Just Jared reports that Hollywood heavyweights Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston and Charlize Theron have all been spotted wearing the Lauren Jones ‘Franci’ Sandal. The high heel shoe was created by former WWE Diva Lauren Jones, who sporadically appeared for SmackDown in 2004 and 2005. She launched a shoe line in 2009, which has recently taken off.

Jones mutually parted ways with WWE in June 2005 because company officials pushed her to become a wrestler when she wanted to pursue other opportunities. WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis, who brought Jones to the organization in 2004 after she appeared as a model for a WWE Magazine photo shoot, has since made overtures to the entrepreneur/entertainment personality about returning. She met with the WWE exec as recently as last fall, but could not come to terms on a contract.

— Zack Ryder announced this afternoon on his Twitter account that his newly released T-Shirt outsold T-Shirts featuring The Rock at last night’s Raw event.

Ryder wrote, “Was just informed that I sold more T-Shirts than @TheRock last night at RAW…WWWYKI.”

— In a correction from a report last night, the WWE Magazine cover shown during last night’s episode of Raw is the September 2011 issue, not a special edition. John Cena, The Miz, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Sin Cara, Jack Swagger, Christian, Wade Barrett and R-Truth are featured on the cover.

    I didn’t know Ryder had a t-shirt.

  • Im Latino Heat and Im Rated R

    the Ryder Revolution is well underway..WwWYkI B)

  • Justin

    Of course he sold more t-shirts than the Rock…the Rock IS NO LONGER WRESTLING lol. It would be a fucking tragedy if the Rock sold more than an actual current superstar.

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    Wow, you know it is a slow week for wrestling news when we get a shoe story…

  • Rucdogg

    lol Ryder is the man, the funny thing is he knows rock wasnt there and isnt on tv so he should sell more, but he doesnt give a shit he will take it,lol

  • Starship Pain

    Ryder’s unstoppable. Sooner or later he’ll get the push he deserve

  • Sean Mooney

    Santino should have been pinned. Why even bother pushing Otunga and McGillicutty? They’re a tag team in a non-existent tag team division. They haven’t pushed them yet (didn’t they lose to the Uso’s too? I guess that’s their next/first real feud?). They didn’t push Slater/Gabriel (despite 3 reigns). I am not sure what’s more ridiculous, the tag team BELTS or having tag team champs without a tag division. It’s been bad in the past, but it seems to be getting worse and worse.

  • CM Spunk

    Ryder and Hawkins should reunite, and fued for the titles as long as it’s a decent fued, but its the tag team titles. Who am i kidding.

  • Mr. Spadez

    Ryder will get over in time… right now they have to make Otunga and McGillicutty believable as Tag Team Champs since they are no longer being claimed as Nexus. WWE needs more good tag team matches, (not saying RAW’s was good) but they need more in surplus.

  • ChrisDV


    They have titles, he was teaming with Santino, management still doesn’t want to push him…

    Pick one.

  • Jimbo

    OK so….I THOUGHT if you sold merchandise then WWE pushes you? So why did he lose to those no-talents Otunga and McGillicutty?

  • Snark Mark

    Just googled Lauren and I don’t believe I ever lied eyes on her while she was on WWE TV. I hope she finds success in her current endeavors. Hopefully her success will motivate all the other no-talent bikini models to quit and try out other fields.

    Go Ryder Go! WOO WOO WOO!
