Inside The Squared Circle: Hogan Divorce, Lex Lugar Update, Booker T Debut, Jericho vs. Orton? Matt Hardy Out 10 Weeks, Sting To W.W.E.? Much More...

Plenty of little tidbits to pass along:

Hulk Hogan's wife of 24 years, Linda, has filed for divorce. Hulk was notified by a reporter, of all people, looking to get a comment from Terry"Hulk"Hogan on the divorce. Holy smokes indeed!

Lex Lugar suffered a stroke last month, and the 49-year-old still has not regained movement in his arms or legs. I certainly hope for the best for Lugar, who has had tragedy after tragedy occur in his life the last few years.

Booker T will make his debut on television for T.N.A.(Total Nonstop Action) on Thursday night. In my book, T.N.A. is at this point not competition for the W.W.E. As long as they keep picking up castoffs or guys who fail their drugs tests (as in the case of Booker T), they won't be. Best bet for them would be to develop their own young talent. Similar to what R.O.H. (Ring of Honor) does. I'm rooting for T.N.A., mind you, because competition is better for all involved.

Looks as though Chris Jericho will get his shot at Randy Orton for the W.W.E. Championship at the next pay-per-view, Armageddon on December 16. Wondering if it isn't too soon.

Matt Hardy had an emergency appendectomy Wednesday and is scheduled to be out of action for up to 10 weeks. Hopefully, he will return sooner so he can compete at the Royal Rumble.

Sting - not the singer but the wrestler - has been offered a new contract by T.N.A. Rumors persist, though, that the W.W.E. is interested in nabbing the lone big star never to wrestle in the W.W.E. Wouldn't a Sting-Ric Flair bout at Wrestlemania be great to see? The matches between those two in the late '80s were awesome.

Brock Lesnar will fight Frank Mir in his first match for U.F.C. on February 2.

Some other songs that I should add to my list of pretty good wrestler entrance themes are: "Pomp and Circumstance March 1," by Sir Edward William Elgar, used by Randy "Macho Man" Savage; "Highway to Hell" by AC/DC used by The Dudley's in the old E.C.W.; "Frankenstein" by The Edgar Winter Group used by 911 in the old E.C.W.; "Enter Sandman," by Metallica used by The Sandman in, once again, the old E.C.W.

Keep it in the Ring!
