I was not aware of that
well, in the spirit of discussion then I think that it is awesome that Mil Mascaras will be in a WWE ring, I will def be watching.

Also Brock Lesnar is in the new WWE12 game


It's official - the only man in history to hold both the WWE and UFC Heavyweight titles - Brock Lesnar - has been confirmed as a playable character in the new WWE '12 video game.

According to our sources, THQ approached Lesnar in January and asked for permission to use his name and likeness in the game and advertising campaign. Lesnar was said to be ecstatic over the idea, but wouldn't agree to terms unless he received permission from UFC president Dana White. The outspoken mixed martial arts promoter gave Lesnar his blessing - and WWE '12 is shaping up to be a game like none other.

White told TMZ.com this week, "I love WWE and I have nothing but love for Vince McMahon -- I'm totally okay with Brock being in the game."
personally I can't help but wonder if the WWE are going to use this opportunity to bring back and sell some of Brock's old shirts from his time in the WWE, also this can set a good precedent for bringing in talent for the games that have moved on.

No Mil Máscaras is not related to Sin Cara but is Alberto Del Rio's uncle. His brother is Dos Caras, Sr.

This just in, Details:

The following is from TMZ.com:

A former WWE wrestler was arrested in Florida yesterday after cops say he was injecting himself with stolen pain medicine ... while hiding inside the bathroom of a local Chili's restaurant.

Tyson Tomko -- who wrestled in the WWE between 2002 and 2009 -- is accused of robbing a CVS Pharmacy on October 10th ... allegedly threatening to attack the pharmacist unless he forked over several bottles of Oxycodone.

The pharmacist claims he complied -- and Tomko escaped with 210 tablets of the powerful painkiller.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Tomko went to a nearby Chili's ... where he asked his waitress for a spoon. When the server brought him a teaspoon, he asked for a "deeper spoon" ... and when he got it, he took it to the men's room ... where he remained for 30 to 40 minutes.

Cops were eventually tipped off ... and when they arrived on the scene, one officer says Tomko had "needle marks and blood running down his arm" ... and had just flushed something down the toilet.

Tomko was taken into custody -- and allegedly told police he has a "severe drug problem."

Cops say Tomko admitted he took the Oxycodone from CVS ... and injected 178 pills, which he crushed up and melted down ... but he swore he never threatened the pharmacist.

Tomko was taken to a nearby hospital ... then transported to a nearby jail, where he was booked for robbery. He's currently behind bars -- bond was set at $7,500.

In an interesting bit of news which some of you may have already noticed, WWE.com no longer features the TitanTron entrance music videos for the WWE Superstars and Divas. The site features an extensive and rather impressive video selection, but there are no Superstar and Diva TitanTron videos to be found anywhere on the site.

WWE.com has undergone changes over the last few months and it would appear as though the TitanTron videos will no longer be released through WWE.com. But WWE's official YouTube channel does still have TitanTron videos from past and present Superstars and Divas. However, WWE's YouTube channel rarely uploads the TitanTron videos, and many Superstars such as Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, Alberto Del Rio, and others, do not have have TitanTron videos uploaded on WWE's YouTube channel.

It should also be noted that many of the YouTube TitanTrons are outdated. Drew McIntyre's TitanTron for example shows clips from when he was the Intercontinental Champion on SmackDown*in late 2009 and into early 2010.

There is no word so far on whether this was done due to various users of YouTube "ripping" the videos off of WWE.com, or if it was simply done perhaps due to low traffic on WWE.com's former TitanTron video page. It is also unclear if WWE plans on continuing to release the TitanTrons through their YouTube channel, or if they will no longer be releasing them from now on.

However, YouTube users are well-known for "ripping" the TitanTrons from WWE's video games as well, so if it is indeed an attempt from WWE to keep the TitanTrons private, it could be pretty much in vain.

Former WWE talent Travis "Tyson" Tomko remains jailed in St. Johns County, Florida eight days after he was arrested on robbery charges, for allegedly robbing 210 tablets of Oxycodone from a CVS Pharmacy. He has yet to come up with $7,500 bail as the official website of the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office lists him as a current jail inmate.

Jim Ross is giving serious consideration to writing an autobiography. The WWE Hall of Famer has put off writing his story because he wants it to be a "tell-all" book and doing so may jeopardize future employment opportunities.

Kevin Nash stated during last week's episode of Live Audio Wrestling that Scott Hall has re-entered rehab.

Stephanie McMahon, WWE's Executive Vice President of Creative Development and Operations, appears in E:60's story on Hall's descent from wrestling superstar to a broken man battling alcoholism and drug addiction (airing Wednesday night on ESPN). She says WWE has sent Hall to rehab multiple times and spent "in the six figures" on efforts to help him get sober.

"It's the most amount of money we've spent on anyone," McMahon said. "I just want Scott to get help and to decide for himself that he needs help. It makes me sad. I don't want anybody to pass away prematurely or otherwise really. Scott was an incredibly talented performer, larger than life, charismatic. He's a father, he's a friend. I'm sure he means a lot to a lot of people and it would be a shame for him to pass away."

On this day back in 2003, Road Warrior Hawk passed away at the age of 46. Hawk, Road Warrior Animal and their manager Paul Ellering were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year.

Tommy Dreamer is now releasing webisodes much similar to Zack Ryder's Z!True Long Island Story called The Tommy Dreamer TV. You can watch the video embedded below:
