John Cena (artist Joseph Borzotta, PWTorch)

-John Cena was interveiwed in the current issue of hip hop magazine The Source. He told the story of how his gimmick began. Cena stated that Stephanie McMahon heard him freestyling while they were on a WWE tour bus. She did not believe that the rap he was was performing was unrehearsed, so he did a freestyle about a can of tuna fish she was holding in her hand at that moment. He discussed his upcoming CD, "Underground." Cena appears to be very serious and knowlegeable about hip hop based on his comments in the article.

-Off-and-on again WWE performer Mick Foley will be appearing at Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdost, Ga. on Labor Day signing autographs, a non-WWE appearance. Some local radio stations are giving winners ofa contest the chance to ride a ride with him. [Thanks to PWTorch.com reader Chris Embry]

-Former WWF Champion Ultimate Warrior is selling one of the versions of the title belts he won (and obviously kept) on eBay. The "buy it now" price is $34,999. You know, had he charge4d $35,000 even, it would have seemed like a ripoff, but by knocking a dollar off of that amount, it feels like a bargain. Warrior writes in his ad: "What else needs to be said? It's real. It's genuine. It's true. I own it. I am Warrior. The Creator, Owner and Performer of The Ultimate Warrior, former WWF Heavyweight Champion. Ultimate Warrior was the only talent who wore colored WWF Heavyweight Championship belts. Period. Ultimate Warrior was the only one to were a blue WWF Heavyweight Championship belt. Period." He then goes on a long explanation of how skeptics are wrong that this is not the real belt, and tries to prove it is the genuine article. eBay Link.
