Umaga's Out

On Monday June 8th 2009 WWE came to the agreements of the release of Umaga (Eddie Fatu)I was shocked when I heard the news, I thought maybe he asked for his release however, I later on found out that he violated the WWE wellness policy. WWE offered Fatu free rehabilitation but refused to seek it therefore resulting in his contract being terminated. That was a big mistake by Fatu who was getting main event slots in his WWE career. His last match was against CM punk in a Samoan strap match at the Extreme Rules Pay-Per View, which Fatu lost.

Fatu was also known as Jamal in that tag team 3 minute warning along side his partner, Rosey who then switched character to Super Hero In Training (S.H.I.T) who was also released a few years ago. On Monday April 3rd 2006 Fatu made his debut as Umaga Destroying Ric Flair. Later on in his career Umaga feuded with Kane in their last match Umaga defeated The Big Red Monster in a loser leaves raw match.

Umaga's first Wrestlemania was against Bobby Lashey in a hair match, in which if Umaga lost Vince had to shave his head bald and if Lashley lost Donald Trump had to shave his head bald. Of course Lashley won and Vince was bald. Fatu is a former United States and intercontinental champion. Fatu has many options open he can change his ways by attending rehabilitation and negotiate with WWE for a new contract. Fatu can also go to TNA were the wellness policy's are not very strict if so there is already rumors of a feud with Samoa Joe.

Randy Savage Curse!

Some say it’s a curse others say its just plain weird! Here are the mysterious facts behind the release of the long awaited Randy Savage Ultimate Collection DVD set..ohh yeahh!

1-MachoMadness.com, the official website of Randy Savage, has launched an online petition to get the Macho Man inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

2-WWE's online store, WWEShop.com, has put up the product page for their upcoming three-disc DVD set on the career of Randy Savage, Macho Madness - The Randy Savage Ultimate Collection. While fans can purchase the DVD by itself, WWE is also offering a package deal including the DVD, the WWE: The Main Event book, and a three-pack of miscellaneous wrist bracelets. As you can see, WWE is not going all out with their package deal on Savage as they typically offer another piece of merchandise related to the Superstar's DVD release — usually a t-shirt. There is actually a reason for the non-inclusion of another Savage product in this case.

3-According to the webmaster of Randy Savage's official website, www.MachoMadness.com, WWE officials do not want fans wearing t-shirts bearing his trademark likeness appearing on their television shows. As a result, WWE is not manufacturing and including a t-shirt that is typically included with DVD packages.

4-A ConAgra plant near Raleigh, N.C., that makes and packages Slim Jim beef jerky was rocked by a huge explosion on Tuesday, killing three employees and sending dozens of workers and three firefighters to hospital with severe burns or "exposure to toxic fumes." This happened the same day the Randy Savage Ultimate Collection is released.

5-It was reported last month that WWE decided against manufacturing Savage clothing in coordination with their three-disc DVD release on him as they didn't want fans wearing t-shirts bearing his trademark likeness appearing on their television shows.

6-WWE had arena security confiscate all fan signs related to "Macho Man" Randy Savage at Monday's Raw taping in Green Bay, Wisconsin. (Guess the WWE does not believe in the First Amendment!)

In conclusion, I don't think anyone will really ever know why all these strange happenings took place during the release of the Randy Savage Ultimate Collection DVD set, but with strange rumors of Vince putting some sort of voodoo spell on Savage who knows what to think. I purchased the Randy Savage Ultimate Collection and there are some great matchs and interviews on there sadly its missing a documentary on the life of Savage. Curse or not Randy Savage is still one of the greatest wrestlers of all time..DIG IT.
