In the pics, Melina is topless and covered only in a very light layer of body paint which covers absolutely nothing. The pics have a fitting holiday theme, so Melina's boobs are painted up in some festive holiday wrapping style paint. Being WWE no longer works with Playboy, and have decided to go with the boring TV-PG approach which means we hardly ever get to see the Diva's in anything sexy anymore, it's always nice to find some rare pics like these, especially with a Diva like Melina who we haven't seen any naked pics of. The pics are too hot to post here, but if you want to see the not safe for work pics, check out the link below:

Dr. Death Steve Williams died today, no details on the how or why as of yet. But, like most, I am assuming heart attack. You may remember him from his time in WWE when Jim Ross went crazy and turned heel and managed him for awhile.
**Note** Our Writer Random Villain was not aware of Dr. Death's battle with throat cancer for the past few years. Doc battled and beat cancer once, and even continued wrestling even though he needed a device to talk. Sadly the cancer recently returned, and Doc lost the battle this time, but will be admired for his good spirits and hard fought battle right to the end. At the bottom of this post, we've linked to Steve Williams book, which Steve Williams himself documents his wrestling career and battle with cancer. RIP to a true legend here in the U.S., and worldwide.
On the December 29th edition of ECW on SYFY,Thomas James Laughlin, aka, Tommy Dreamer wrestled his final match, in a losing effort to Zach Ryder. This came as a shock to me and I'm sure many others who have followed Dreamer's career from up and comer in the old Bingo Hall, later bestoyed the ECW arena, to recieving the moniker "The innovator of violence" to a roller coaster couple of years in WWE.
Now this is just me, but without Tommy Dreamer in ECW, those letters may as well go back to Eastern Championship Wrestling because without the "heart and soul of ECW", you have nothing and no one that represents what those letters really stand for. All you have now is either wrestlers who are on WWE's radar for past mistakes (Christian, William Regal), wrestlers who aren't good enough to carry themselves just yet on the bigger shows, (Vladimir Koslov, Ezekiel Jackson, Zach Ryder), or wrestlers who are trying to make a name for themselves to move on up the ladder of WWE(Yoshi Tatsu, Vance Archer). On occasion, they have an Extreme rules match to commemorate what ECW used to be, but even then, its nothing like the original.
Rumors have been flying around that ECW is going to get cut from SYFY's timeslot for weak ratings(0.9-1.2) so maybe its a blessing in disguise as I'm sure Tommy knew if it does happen, he would be receiving a "best wishes in future endeavors" on WWE.com and a space in WWE's alumni page.
Let me say, that if Tommy does decide to go to TNA, ROH, New Japan, All Japan, even AAA, I do wish him luck in future endeavors because even if he's past his prime and his body is, I'm sure, giving up on him, he should be remembered for more then just being the "heart and soul of ECW" but a legend and innovator that started a revolution of the hardcore sense, because HE'S HARDCORE!!!

So it's up to you. Watch the Wolfpac reunion and see what Hogan and Bischoff have up their sleeves? Or, watch HBK run around like an idiot for the millionth time? You choose.

We received a copy of "My Life Outside the Ring and really weren't sure what to expect.; we've heard all the stories from Hulk in his first book and multiple DVDs, so what else could this offer? Well this book took a pretty cool approach in focusing more on what was going on outside of wrestling during all the years of many big runs in wrestling. More detailed telling of Hulks early life and early days of getting into wrestling are told. Hulk hits his whole career here and is interesting for anyone who was a fan of "Hogan Knows Best" as it tells the full story on his marriage to Linda, having kids, etc. It also holds nothing back on the drug and steroid use that went on during certain time periods, including Hulk's own use and even Linda's.
The book doesn't paint a very pretty picture of Linda, but who expected it to? Of course the book is filled with some of the famous tall tales that Hulk is known for, with a few dates and occurrences being off, but again, that was expected.
It boils down to if you are a Hulk Hogan fan or not. If you are a Hulk fan, the book is a fun read that gives more details and a few unknown facts that are cool to learn. If you are not a Hulk fan, then you probably won't enjoy it and you will be annoyed by the tall tales and truth stretching that goes on. The complete divorce and car accident involving Hulk's son Nick and John Graziano is also covered extensively.
It gets a little preachy toward the end, as Hulk talks about recent years going through his divorce from Linda and how he read the book "The Secret," which gave him a new outlook on life. Overall, not a bad read, especially if you enjoy getting all the Hulkamania you can get.
Book Review: Bret Hart's "Hitman"
Alright, so, Johnny Damon should never hold a microphone ever again in his life... What... the.... fuck? A tiger, and some lady chasing him with a golf club... what in the hell does this have to do with anything?

THE MIZ IS A TAX CHEAT!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alright what in the hell is this shit with the lady and the tiger? What in the blue hell does that have to do with ANYTHING? Yes, I know theyre doing some stupid Tiger Woods spoof shit, but like I said, what does it have to do with anything? God I wanna be in a WWE creative meeting just once to sit and listen to the shit that they come up with that DOESNT make it on the air. Oh good Mae Young is making out with Johnny Damon.

On December 4, 2009, the wrestling world lost another big man in Eddie Fatu, better known as Umaga. God rest his soul. He will be missed.
With that being said, Umaga was just another man-monster who lost his grip over the wrestling, in his case, WWE. A mistake management made. That mistake being, Umaga talked. And I know that his release had nothing to do with fans not getting behind him but a wellness policy violation, but that's off topic.
"The Samoan Bulldozer" was is one in a list of men who lost there sizzle because of mistakes like this. That mistake being. They became normal and spoke. Now if I may go in depth on this topic I have chosen and break down three wrestlers who, because of this, weren't all that intimidating at the end. Let me just say now, some of you won't agree with the last guy, but I think he fits in perfectly.
First off, Kane. Kane seemed invincible when he first arrived in WWF back in 1997, even with loses to The Undertaker. For goodness sakes, he was set on fire(his arm was at Unforgiven 1998) and he still kept going the next night on Raw. The downward spiral began when he Chyna started working together, then again, when he and Tori began working together, allowing superstars like Sean"Xpac" Waltman to defeat him. Soon there after, he began talking, which in turn, made him even more human. While WWE fixed it ever so slightly by having him remove the mask in a Mask vs Championship match vs Triple H on Raw(June 23, 2003), he soon after lost that intimidation again. Now, he loses to Rey Mysterio(no offense to him but c'mon!).
Now, The Great Khali. While nobody will ever mistake him as a great technician, when he arrived, he was a scary man. For lack of a better term, he was indestructible, and for a while, he was undefeated. A few years later and a few shows later, The Great Khali turned face and began talking, or trying to talk in English, when his infatuation over Santina Marella started. "Your sister is hot!" really stuck in my head. That was also around the time The Khali Kisscam started. That speaks for itself.
Finally, the manthat, in my opinion. fits perfectly in this, Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar made an immediate impact in WWE the night after Wrestlemania XVIII(18) when he destroyed Buh Buh Ray, Spike, Maven, Al Snow, and soon after, The Hardy Boyz. This mean streak would have him stay undefeated,winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Rock at Summerslam, and defeating The Undertaker in a classic Hell in a Cell match at No Mercy, 2002. A month later, Lesnar would lose the WWE championship to The Big show at Survivor Series. But what had he started doing not long before this match? Talking. Cutting promos. Once he became a normal dude with superhuman strength, he would go on to tap out, to two different men (Kurt Angle at Summerslam, 2003, and Chris Benoit at Survivor Series, 2003.)
He lost his aura. They all did and it was because the fans sympathized with them because they weren't monsters anymore. Its easier to sympathize with a regular guy then it is a monster. Thats why people die in horror movies. Nobody wants to see the monsters talk out there differences, whether it be in movies or in the ring. I know I wouldn't.

Now, this may be just me, but the difference between the Monday night Wars of yesteryear and the more the likely rebirth of this war is this. When WCW did it, they had talent that was still in the prime of their careers, at least for the most part. They had the NWO, led by Hogan, Nash, and Hall. They had Bill Goldberg, Diamond Dallas Page, Bret Hart, and let us not forget the Cruiserweight division.
TNA, on the other hand, has an aging Kurt Angle, aging Mick Foley, as well as a hand full more of aging talent. There storylines are similar to ones that have been seen in wrestling for years, but we can’t blame them for that, as WWE has done the same thing. The only thing they have going for them is the X division which is something WWE lacks tremendously. And while WWE is trying to catch up, I will say, TNA’s knockout division is far superior then WWE’s divas, but again, WWE is trying catching up.
I think it’s ridiculous that TNA wants to go head to head with WWE for a huge reason; the ratings. I understand that ratings are an essential part of wrestling today. That being said, TNA’s rating are nowhere near where they should be, at least to have the gull to challenge WWE. Their ratings are around the 1.0-1.5 while WWE’s flagship show, Raw has hit the 4.0 mark on occasion. TNA Impact has been on course with WWE’s third brand, ECW, which is not a good thing.
I say it’s not a good thing for the simple fact that ECW has become something of a breeding ground for new WWE talent, and at only an hour, is tying TNA’s two hour show, which has huge names in the card. Names like Kurt Angle and AJ Styles.
So let me ask again. Does TNA management really think it can go head to head with WWE and Raw? Personally, I don’t think so. With the exception of AJ Styles, all the other men that have held the TNA world title in recent memory have had bigger success in WWE. Styles is the homegrown boy and no offense to him, he’s great, but, he’s nowhere near as popular, or well known as John Cena, Randy Orton, or Triple H.
So to top this off, Do I think TNA is ready? No. I don’t. Do I think it will, or it should start a rating’s war? Yes, but that’s just as a wrestling fan. Everybody will tell you that wrestling in the 90’s was the greatest thing going and it was because companies were “pushing the envelope” to beat one another. I would love to see that again, but I don’t think TNA is ready for that just yet. I’ll be open minded and say that maybe in two years, it can go one on one with the great one, to steal from The Rock..or Dwayne Johnson. Sorry.
