Update On Candice Michelle's WrestleMania Status, Latest On Nidia, Rourke Ringside
— While signing autographs and meeting fans at last night’s WrestleMania Axxess event in Houston, Candice Michelle was spotted wearing her medical boot, which should confirm that her ankle injury has yet to fully heal (she was also seen wearing the boot a few weeks ago at a GoDaddy.com event). As a result, she won’t be competing in tomorrow night’s 25-Diva Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXV. Two weeks ago, her picture was pulled from the WWE television graphic promoting the match.
— As reported earlier, former WWE Diva Nidia Guenard was spotted at a WWE function in Houston on Thursday. She lives in the city and it is believed that was simply visiting friends rather than coming in for the 25-Diva Battle Royal at WrestleMania, reports The Sun. The first Tough Enough champion hasn’t been active in wrestling for years and had a baby in 2007.
— WWE announced yesterday that Mickey Rourke will be sitting at ringside for WrestleMania XXV tomorrow night to support WWE Hall of Famers and Legends Ric Flair, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka in their showdown with Chris Jericho. WWE issued a press release on The Wrestler star’s involvement with WrestleMania at the following link.
