Buy a Date with Shelly "Salinas" Martinez for Only 5 Grand! (So Far)

You, yes YOU, can go on a **lunch with wrestling diva/knockout Shelly Martinez** former nude model and even had a fetish video last year, so people instantly think they're getting some action. Well whoever pays that price hopefully understands what they're getting, and hopefully can take a major hit to their bank account.

We'd definitely like to get some reports on how this super expensive date goes when all is said and done.
known as "Salinas" in TNA as part of LAX and "Ariel" in WWE's ECW, Shelly recently left TNA due to signing on to do a movie, but that doesn't mean you can't fly yourself out to L.A. and go eat at the famous Mr. Chow restaurant and hang with Shelly - all for around 5 grand as of this writing.

Now I'm sure half the people that bid on this are horny guys who think they're going to get to hook up with Ms. Martinez in their dream fantasy, but in reality this auction will probably have some ups and downs before a legit buyer comes through. And keep in mind, 5 grand is only for the date, you still have to fly yourself out to L.A. at your own expense. This was a cool idea to do for any huge Salinas fans out there, but as I mentioned, a lot of people probably won't be able to cover that sort of price (and the auction still has over 5 days,) but people are excited at the idea being it's well known and as we've mentioned here before that Shelly has done some

** The above link has been updated, due to Ebay taking the original auction down due to it sounding too much like a HOT date with Shelly, like an almost, um, prostitution type situation. The auction is now labeled as a personal autograph signing/lunch with Shelly Martinez **

Remember When...Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage Formed the Mega-Powers?

The Mega-PowersThis event in wrestling history was such a breath of fresh air and had such a new feeling to it. Hulk Hogan had defeated Andre the Giant, and after that, who could be a believable challenger if Andre couldn't get the job done? The answer was no one, therefore the Hulkster took on a new path; a great story that aligned him with one of his most bitter enemies - the Macho Man Randy Savage.

In the weeks leading up the October 3rd Saturday Night's Main Event, Macho Man Randy Savage had made it clear that he did not appreciate the Honky Tonk Man going around claiming to be the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time being Savage previously held that title for a lengthy run himself. Keep in mind Savage was also a heel at the time and coming off a post Wrestlemania 3 feud with Ricky Steamboat, who Honky Tonk defeated for the IC Title. This alone made this situation unique, since back in 1987 all the bad guys were friends and you would rarely hear a bad guy in the WWF call out another bad guy like this. Macho Man was still a cool heel compared to the asshole Honky Tonk Man who no one could like, so Macho Man was the better guy in this case if you had to pick one.

Thank You WWE, Chris Jericho is Our NEW World Heavyweight Champion!

What? How? Huh? Yes, you read the headline right, tonight at Unforgiven, in the championship scramble match that could have seen any of the 5 guys in the match come out as WWE World Champion, NONE of the scheduled guys in the match took home the gold, as an odd, out of nowhere replacement known as Chris Jericho won the title in a crazy twist. As I sat here at the Stardust Ranch watching WWE Unforgiven, the Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho match had me wondering the WHOLE time why this match wasn't the main event. Great story, great delivery, great pace, the feud can't be touched in WWE right now. HBK got a little revenge, but made it clear he still didn't get enough, and was delivering the old school vibes in a major way with this feud. Shawn Michaels won, but this great war is far from over. So as I see another great story developing, that being Randy Orton rallying the second generation stars together, namely Cody Rhodes, Ted Dibiase, and Afa Jr. (Now called Manu,) the new group kicked CM Punks ass and took him out of the main event, which did not anger me in the least. Then the speculation begins, who could replace Punk? Is Orton really ready to return and have we been worked into a situation where Orton comes out and wins? That would've been cool, but that didn't happen. Is WWE going to be typical and have NO one come out, and pull a lame title win by Batista or Mysterio, or hell ANYone else in the match? Nope not that either. Instead, we get a true "WHAT THE HELL?" reaction, when Jericho's music hits once again, and he slowly tries to make his way to the ring, selling the straight up FIGHT he just had with Michaels. With only seconds left, and Batista the current champ, Y2J slid in the ring, stole a pin, and is the NEW World Champion.....and I must say I loved it. Jericho has reinvented himself with his new heel character, and is by FAR the best heel currently on RAW, and drawing the most heat. Problem was, he was stuck in the midst of such a good story with Michaels, the heavyweight title just wasn't in the picture at the time. But somehow, for some reason, WWE threw us a curve ball, and actually shook things up, and gave the title to a guy that can carry it correctly, and draw the correct amount of heat needed. This move really shakes things up and has me interested in watching at least RAW, as they're definitely pushing new talent, and guys who are making an impact are getting titles and pushes, while lame ass boring crap is being pushed aside. Here's hoping Y2J has a great series of defenses with HBK, while Punk hopefully gets sent to TNA or ROH or something, seriously, the guy's T-shirt looks like a dress on him, I want a world champion with class, a world champion who can come out in a suit and look like a champion, i want a world champion that will bring back some real interest, enough that MAYBE some other writers could even write on this site, imagine that!

Mickie James Called Out on Live Radio About Her Pornographic Pictures!

This is definitely the wrestling related humor for the day. This morning on a St. Louis radio show, Mickie James was a call in guest, discussing everything from RAW being in St. Louis this past Monday, her hectic schedule, her guest appearance on "Psych," oh, and the little fact that she's posted in some extremely hardcore pornographic pictures years ago for "Legshow Magazine."

The hosts bring up this fact, and straight up questions Mickie James if she did it, and Mickie is at a total loss for words, stumbling around the question, and trying to get out of the interview ASAP. Obviously Mickie James doesn't want her porn career talked about, as back then I"m sure she had no clue that she'd go on to become a major star in the WWE.

Well the hosts found this extremely humorous and went over it numerous times and really got a laugh. And now Mickey is going to have to face her past once again, as the hosts commented that not many people even know about her having such hardcore nude pics out there, these are beyond Playboy level stuff here folks. To listen to the entire interview, which was a nice little radio interview until the dirty stuff came up, check out the ITD Morning After Interview About Porn with Mickie James, and if you're brave enough, and over 18, check out the VERY NSFW Mickie James Nude Porn Pictures.

It's Official, Mick Foley is Coming to TNA Wrestling!

Well the rumors were made official today, in one of the biggest moves in years, TNA has signed Mick Foley to what's being described as a "short term deal" at this point. Short term or not, Mick Foley in TNA is absolutely HUGE. Foley is a guy that brings a cult following with him, one of the guys that smarts and regular fans alike are fans of. Kurt Angle was the biggest acquisition for TNA to date, and Kurt is no doubt a star, but he didn't have a cult following like Foley does. Mick Foley in WWE has dried up, there just isn't anything WWE can do with him anymore, and it's become a waste. Why throw Mick Foley in a meaningless 5 or 6 way main event, just to have him lose as usual. WWE is too stuck on their new stars, and their cookie cutter looks, to actually go against the norm and have Foley shock everyone and win a title or something. Every time Foley came out on WWE TV, he still got the much deserved pop, being he is indeed a legend, but the crowd that would go wild chanting "Foley! Foley" back in the late 90's is gone. That was the crowd that gave respect where it was due. Now we're back to kids filling up WWE audiences, and they want to see the stars that they have a t-shirt of like Cena, Mysterio, Batista, etc. Mick Foley gets a courtesy pop, but the fans who truly enjoyed 90's wrestling aren't the majority in WWE's crowds anymore. Now TNA, whole different story. Foley in TNA is the first guy that makes such an impact, that you want to see the visual of Foley in a TNA ring, you want to hear the crowd react to Foley in TNA, because the TNA fans will explode for Foley, whether it's in Orlando or especially any of the northeast towns they run. Foley is a star almost on the level of The Rock or Steve Austin from that era, and his presence in TNA will no doubt be nothing short of awesome.

Now the next big question: What will Mick Foley's role in TNA be exactly?We've heard it's a short term deal, which really means nothing, because things can obviously work out great and Foley will sign on longer, but are we going to get the Mick Foley who comes out and cuts promos and is an authority figure? Are we going to get the hardcore legend who will take on Abyss in a no ropes barbed wire match? Or will we get the former heavyweight champion who joins in the current angle with Sting/Nash/Booker/Angle taking on the new generation. Hopefully Foley sees in ring action, because he is a guy that can get stories over, and give us memorable moments in the ring. WWE will really be kicking themselves if Foley comes in and brings in a whole new interest in TNA. Look at Foley's last appearance with WWE, which was the Smackdown segment with Foley and Edge. Foley got over Edges new character completely, which has since made for some AWESOME TV when Edge is on. I credit Foley because he really got the facts over, and really brought something out of Edge that was totally missing. Now Foley is gone, and TNA has Foley to help them build their product, and if don't right, he can definitely do it. 1 thing I hope, is Foley gets TNA over the hump so to speak, as they do have some entertaining things on Impact, but something is still missing. A star the caliber of Mick Foley, used in the right way, may just be the thing, but we'll know for sure soon, because it's now official, and TNA is having a very nice day!
