Former WWE Star Arrested, Update on the WWE US Title Situation, Shaq-MMA

– reports that NBA legend and rumored WrestleMania celebrity Shaquille O’Neal has agreed to face baseball great Jose Canseco in a MMA fight, after a week of online harassment from Canseco. Shaq has formal training in BJJ, Muay Thai and boxing while Canseco has had one MMA fight.

– Former WWE star Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart was arrested for Contempt of Court yesterday, March 14th in Hillsborough County, Florida. Neidhart was in court today apparently to answer charges of Possession of Controlled Substance and First Degree Theft. He is currently in jail with no bond set.

– As we have noted, Evan Bourne has been discussed for a WWE United States Title feud with Jack Swagger for later this year. While Santino Marella currently holds the title, officials are leaning towards taking it off of him after WrestleMania 28.

    we got either too options to make wwe interesting again…….1. they do the rebirth of the cruiserweight title….and have the the title holder go to both raw and smackdown to defend the title…..kinda like the tag team champions…..or number 2. ……i heard they gonna cancel smackdown after wrestlemania… why not do the rebirth of wcw…since vince owns the name….wcw on thursdays or fridays….and put the world heavyweight title in the show with both cruiserweight aNd us title there…..and bring in the younger cruiserweights like evan bourne,yoshi tatsu,santino, and all the little guys ….HELL even bring back billy kidman and put rey mysterio on the show like one of the original wcw guys to put over the new younger guys…..bring back the claassssic rings and arenas and ppvs as well…of course have sheamus christian and daniel brayan on the show…basically juat chance smackdown to wcw….wwe has to be creative!!!!!

    Ok I like it. Still, has Bourne ever spoke on live tv?

  • Starship Pain

    So, you give a cold shoulder to the “legend” Trish Stratus and they bury you. But you can smoke marijuana and still get a push. Wow. Potheads deserve the glory. Way to go, WWE.

    Get rid of the US title and bring back the european title.
    We need a champ that hails from different parts of europe everyweek like D-lo Brown and Al Snow.

    Hey, why not turn Bourne heel? He could say we “betrayed” him & he never got anywhere because of appealing to the fans. He can win the US title from Santino, then have some great PPV matches with Kofi, R-Truth, Ryder, etc. That’s at least 3 months of feuds & matches for Bourne as US champ.

  • CM Mark

    Give the US Title to Drew, he really needs a push of some kind. Who cares about Bourne, has he ever even spoke on the mic? Pathetic.

    Santino? What a joke…

    Poor Jim, I hate to see him go dow like this. I always loved to watch him in the tag matches back in the 80’s. Very sad.

  • TG

    I like @heyfit idea they might can do something similar to TNA and modify it to the cruiser weight title if Sin Cara or another has it for that time.

  • Flip

    Didn’t Jose conseco no show a boxing match and send his brother or something

  • KpNuttzLol

    Such a shame that Santino looks to be only holding the title just to give him that extra push going into Wrestlemania. He’s a good talent but is made out to be a joke.

    As for Bourne, I would like to see him win the title although I think R Truth deserves it more. Truth has put on a heck of a performance as a main eventer but he’s not quite there yet if he won the title (again) and held it for a month or more it would do wonders for him

  • SusyRko

    Bourne will come out to the ring smoking marijuana and throwing peace signs to the audience.


    Get rid of Bourne

  • XSF

    Does it honestly matter? The chances of Bourne simply getting suspended a third time and thusly fired are high.

  • Whocares

    Get rid of the us title altogether.

  • HHH=Goat

    Bourne will get suspended again about 3 weeks after he returns

  • TS93

    As dumb as this may sound. give it to Ryder and have him feud with Hawkins, have Hawkins win it at WM. No1 wld expect Hawkins to win plus itd give him a push

  • heyfit

    GIVE the belt to hunico and let him feud with bourne … then when Sin returns, have a triple threat ladder match for the US title. It’ll showcase the cruiserweights AND make the US title seem important again.

  • Allen

    I would LOVE to see a Dolph Ziggler and Evan Bourne feud. Could do some really good stuff.

  • nick

    I think borne, as a heel should feud with santino for the title

  • TS93

    Any1 but swagger….at least give it to a superstar that deserves it. Vickies the only reason swagger is even still relevant

  • Sting

    well jeez thanks for the spolier…good thing i dont watch much wwe anymore anyways xD
