Inside The Squared Circle: W.W.E. Scare In Iraq, No Way Out Pay-Per-View, RVD News, Sunny, Candice Michelle Return, Much More

A scary moment occurred for the W.W.E. when a helicopter carrying Ron Simmons, John Bradshaw Layfield, Chris Jericho, Dean Malenko, Carlito, and Mickie James experienced some damage while it was landing. The superstars were stranded for up to five hours in a war zone in Tarmiyah, Iraq in the middle of fires, smoke bombs, dead animals, and razor wire. Fortunately they were with U.S. soldiers, unfortunately, it was in an unsecure area. The Tribute to the Troops airs this Monday night at 9 on the USA Network. Chris Jericho called the trip to Iraq the best experience he has ever had in his 17 years of being involved in pro wrestling. By the way, the matches airing this Monday night are from Tikrit, the late Saddam’s hometown.

Reportedly, the W.W.E. was very impressed with Rob Van Dam and Tammy”Sunny”Sytch at last week’s Raw Anniversary Show and would love to bring both back in some capacity. We’ll all just have to sit back and wait and see if it is full-time or as a special appearance type of thing. The W.W.E. needs Sunny’s personality, no question about that. They definitely need the highly-athletic wrestling style of RVD.

Former W.W.E. Women's Champion Candice Michelle (pictured above, nice belt!) is due back in the ring in January, as is Bobby Lashley.

Lex Lugar is still paralyzed, though he has regained some feeling and movement. I hope for the best for Lugar.

The W.W.E. we’ll be holding another draft to disperse its wrestlers among the three different brands some time after Wrestlemania.

The winner of the Royal Rumble will be able to pick which champion – W.W.E. or World – he would like to face at Wrestlemania. Meanwhile, the winner of an "Elimination Chamber" match at No Way Out in Ferbuary we’ll face the other champ. Names being thrown about right now for the "Chamber" match are Umaga, Mr. Kennedy, Shawn Michaels, and Jeff Hardy. But plans change all the time, so we’ll have to wait and see.

I only caught the last few minutes of E.C.W. last night, however, the CM Punk-M.V.P. match was highly entertaining. Punk won by a disqualification and then was attacked by Chavo Guerrero.

Apparently, the critics and the fans liked Raw Monday night. It seems that I was one of the few that didn't love it. These things are just so subjective.
