Inside The Squared Circle: "Big" Surprising Return To W.W.E., Wayne Gretzky & Wrestlemania, W.W.E. Goes HD, Congress' Investigation

Paul"The Big Show”Wight has inked a new contract with the W.W.E. to the surprise of many. Wight had been training to become a boxer with Hulk Hogan as his front man, but Big Show soon found that it was not in his best interest to take up professional boxing in his 30s. Reportedly, Mr. Show has slimmed down to a svelte 440 pounds. Way to go Trimspa, baby!

I’m now going to predict a match at Wrestlemania between Big Show and The Great Khali; perhaps with Hulk Hogan as special referee. As far as Hogan goes, his popularity has really skyrocketed with the success of American Gladiators. Hulk has been on every talk show promoting Gladiators and this surge in Hulkamania will undoubtedly lead to Hogan getting his huge payday at Wrestlemania that he's been wanting for quite some time. Personally, I’m still hoping for a Hulk-"Stone Cold"Steve Austin bout.

Speaking of Wrestlemania, Wayne Gretzky caused a stir recently when he was wearing a "Wrestlemania 2010" t-shirt while being interviewed on television. The shirt is part of a campaign to bring the big event to the desert. Gretzky, as most folks know is the part-owner and Head Coach of the Phoenix Coyotes.

Ron"The Truth”Killings has indeed signed on with the W.W.E. for an $80,000 downside guaranteed contract. That number is a surprisingly low amount of money for someone who is not going to be in one of the W.W.E.’s developmental leagues.

Chris"Wildcat"Harris is following “The Truth” by leaving T.N.A. for W.W.E., as well.

The W.W.E. has announced today that beginning Monday January 21, all of their programming will be available in High Definition (HD). They’ve reportedly spent a cool $20 million upgrading, revamping, and renovating its broadcasting apparatus to make the move possible.
