Rather than make separate posts, here is all the latest on the proposed 25 Diva battle royal at WrestleMania 25!
PWPix.net reports that WWE has done the unthinkable and contacted Stone Cold’s ex-wife, Debra, to be part of the 25 Diva battle royal! Debra is a former Women’s Champion and helped coin the term ‘puppies’ in WWE.
In recent years, Debra has been less than favourable in her judgment of WWE, speaking out on how there was a ‘code of silence’ in WWE as they refused to acknowledge the abuse laid upon her by their top star at the time. Interestingly, that top star is the lead inductee to this year’s Hall of Fame which makes the whole situation even more shocking. It’ll definitely be a sight if Debra turns up.

Speaking of controversial Divas, if she can even be considered that as she predates Divas altogether – WWE has reached out to ’80s star, Wendi Richter to appear at WrestleMania. Richter appeared at the very first ‘Mania with the Fabulous Moolah and left under a cloud of controversy in what is considered ‘the original screwjob’.
In a match against ‘The Spider Lady’, Richter was screwed out of the Women’s Championship when her opponent -Â a masked Fabulous Moolah – broke from the script and pinned her shoulders to the mat. The referee counted 1, 2, 3 despite Richter counting at 1.

And finally, TNA star Booker T spoke on the controversy surrounding his Legends of Wrestling FanFest. Torrie Wilson was scheduled to appear but backed out after commiting herself to be part of the WrestleMania weekend. Booker has now confirmed that she is expected to be part of a match – likely the battle royal:
”Ron Simmons is still within his 90 days, and they told him he can’t do it,” said Booker. ‘Torrie Wilson is involved in a match at WrestleMania, so they thought it was a conflict of interest. I don’t’ know how. Nick Bockwinkel hasn’t had anything with WWE for quite some time, and all of a sudden he’s doing something. Tito Santana has pulled out as well.”
