Twitter was blazing last night with updates about WWE’s biggest night, Wrestlemania.
Fans were sick waiting to see the return of The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) to the wrestling ring, as he prepared to battle John Cena and what many to believe the last match of the wrestling career of HHH and The Undertaker.
The event in Miami, Florida pulled in 78,000 attendance fans, no official word yet on the pay per view numbers, but the WWE expects them to be huge. The biggest moment of the night? For many fans that moment came as HHH and The Undertaker walked up the ramp together, after their match, leaving the big man’s perfect 29-0 record intact.
The Muppets will step into the ring on the Oct. 31 episode of USA’s WWE Raw, live from Atlanta, Georgia. Finally! An opportunity to make a little friendly wager about who would win gold in a faceoff between Triple H and Kermit the Frog. (With the tough-talkin’, fist-throwing Miss Piggy certain to be in his corner, our money’s on Kermie.)
The Halloween night appearance was set up to celebrate the theatrical release of Disney’s The Muppets, the flick features non-fuzzy entertainers Jason Segal and Amy Adams and opens in theaters Thanksgiving Weekend.
While being questioned by Parliament on Tuesday about the allegations of phone hacking by at least one of his newspapers, News Corp’s CEO Rupert Murdoch was hit in the face with a plate of foam by Jonnie Marbles, a self-proclaimed comedian and activist.
Whether or not you agree with the action, what was really awesome was how Rupert’s wife, Wendi Deng, reacted. Seated directly behind her husband, she leapt to her feet and put a WWE-worthy smackdown on Marbles.
Max Beckham, a politics student who was there, told msnbc.com that as the attacker got up “he was muttering something under his breath. He was a little bit disheveled.”
“His [Murdoch's] wife, Wendi, jumps up and smacks him about three, four, five times, like hard, proper blows,” he added. “She was going for it. She tried her hardest to smack him really hard.”
