Reality, stories truly distinct
By TIM BAINES - Ottawa Sun
Maybe it'll be 20 years or so, but baby Aurora Rose Levesque's destiny would seem to be in the wrestling business.
At least if your parents are Stephanie McMahon and Paul Levesque, who has gained so much notoriety as Triple H.
The baby, weighing in at 8 lbs, 7 oz., was born on Monday in Greenwich, Ct.
It all seems so hard to digest ... after all Triple H is embroiled in a storyline bitter feud with the McMahons, but in real life he's married to one ... go figure.
Remember the days when no one dared even whisper that wrestling matches were pre-determined?
When grannies would sit in the audience and jab at wrestlers with their umbrellas?
Well, the line between storylines and real life is much more distinct now.
And wrestlers can walk into airports together, even if one is a "heel" and one is a "face."
And wrestlers like Umaga, the Samoan bulldozer, can put on a pair of shorts and play golf, just like the rest of us.
- Now that the Levesque family has welcomed its princess, look for the D-Generation X feud to kick into high gear leading into Summer Slam.
- Great news for Quebec wrestling fans. Beginning on Aug. 7, at midnight, CKMI will air RAW ... and on Aug. 11, at 12:30 a.m., CJNT will air Smackdown!
- The countdown is on ... ECW begins on Global on Aug. 11 ... it'll air each Friday at midnight.
