Vince feeling like a million bucks
TIM BAINES - Ottawa Sun
Vince McMahon is putting his money where his sizeable mouth is.
The devilish McMahon dropped a bombshell on Monday: He's going to give away $1 million of his own money every Monday on RAW. Now we can only hope that the $1-million sum is a bit more accurate than the fictitious "$20 million" that Floyd Mayweather was given to chair-shot The Big Show into the mat at Wrestlemania.
McMahon has grabbed wrestling fans in an area they actually care about -- their wallets.
We can only hope that WWE puts a big push on The Big Show. Burying him at Wrestlemania was bad enough, but he's been invisible in recent weeks. The guy's a monster ... a champion ... it's time WWE treated him as such.
ONE NIGHT STAND
Here's the card so far for tomorrow's WWE One Night Stand pay-per-view: Triple H vs. Randy Orton; The Undertaker vs. Edge (TLC match, if The Undertaker loses, he must leave WWE forever); John Cena vs. JBL (first-blood match); Shawn Michaels vs. Batista (stretcher match); Jeff Hardy vs. Umaga (falls count anywhere); Big Show vs. John Morrison vs. Tommy Dreamer vs. Chavo Guerrero vs. CM Punk (Singapore cane match); and Beth Phoenix vs. Melina (I Quit match).
There's a C4 Wrestling (Capital City Championship Comba) show tonight at Ottawa's Rideau Carleton Raceway, at 8 p.m. The event features a mix of local wrestlers as well as wrestlers who have been to Japan, Europe, Ring Of Honor (Kevin Steen and Hallowicked), PWG and CHIKARA Pro Wrestling. Tickets are $15 at the door.
Top Rope Championship Wrestling has a show slated for Saturday, June 7 at Buhler Recreation Park in Transcona. Bell time is 5 p.m., and admission is free (although parking is $2). Feature matches include Big Sexy Beasts vs. Zack Mercury & Bobby Sharp for the vacant TRCW Tag Team Titles while the main event is Battle Royal for the vacant TRCW Heavyweight title.
WWE will hold a draft lottery on June 23. Some guys (CM Punk being one of them) need to move. And while they're at it, WWE may want to disperse the entire ECW roster ... Ted DiBiase Jr. debuted on RAW ... And who's the new RAW GM? We're still waiting.
