Melina Explains Gail Kim Videos


nder the Diva Melina section of this site, I am going to post the antics of the CHARACTER Melina. Some times people forget that this is not real… though it’s fun to pretend it is… muahahaha.

I like to goof around and stuff but in real life, I think people should treat others kindly. There are so many good people in the world that we close ourselves off to because we are narrow minded or even judgmental towards. I do not encourage people to be crappy to others. Please do unto other as you would want them to do to you.

Real Melina will be the real me talking and I may over lap and goof about my character but “haters” please know the difference between fiction and non fiction. Let the people who know the difference enjoy the entertainment. What I hope is that the people who feel the need to bully others online, go to a chat room and hate on each other. Leave the cool people I’ve had the pleaser of talking to on the internet to have fun.

I hope that bullies and people who feel the need to turn everything into something negative can find happiness and learn to have a little fun. Being angry & miserable sux. Everyone deserves better than that. Know that you do too.

Just wanted to make that statement. Stay tuned for more antics from the Diva Melina and shared memories from The REAL Melina!!! Gail is my Frenemy!!! XD

Update On Shawn Michaels/Bret Hart DVD

In a correction from last night, the Bret Hart/Shawn Michaels DVD interviews that were filmed yesterday for an October DVD release by WWE are not just on the Montreal Screwjob, but on the entire series of matches and feud between the two, backstage and on screen, that ran for several years.

While the Screwjob is obviously a big part of that, the DVD is not going to be exclusively devoted to that one incident, but their entire relationship and rivalry.

JR tweeted:

Bret/HBK DVD out in Oct. Covers their careers & impact/behind scenes of Montreal 97. Proud of what we got on tape. Open/honest/compelling

Speaking Of Shawn Michaels, he was recently a guest on Wrestling News Live and the archive of the interview can be heard at this link

Video:Daniel Bryan Appears in New Ad for PETA2

Master of Technical Wrestling Says That His Vegan Diet Keeps Him in Prime Fighting Shape

Las Vegas — "As a WWE Superstar, staying healthy and having a lot of energy helps me succeed in the ring—that's why I choose to be a vegan," says Daniel Bryan in his brand-new pro-vegan ad for peta2, PETA's youth division. At 198 muscular pounds, Bryan is in the best shape of life—and he says it's all because of his plant-based diet.

In an exclusive Q&A with peta2, Bryan explained that chronic health problems since childhood led his doctor to suggest that Bryan go vegan. Now, a year later, Bryan says, "[T]his whole year, my energy levels have been great. … I'm stronger right now than I've ever been … I'm dead-lifting more than I ever have before."

And Bryan's diet isn't just good for his health—it's also good for the environment. "[I]t only makes sense to save the planet that you stop eating meat because it … produces so much carbon dioxide," he explains. "[T]here's not enough resources for everybody to eat meat."

Why else is a vegan diet the diet of champions? Vegans can get all the protein that they need from plant-based foods without the artery-clogging saturated animal fats and cholesterol found in meat. The consumption of meat and other animal-derived products has been strongly linked to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity. In addition to greenhouse-gas emissions, meat production is also a leading cause of water pollution and land degradation. And, of course, the best way to fight the cruelty of factory farms and slaughterhouses is to kick the meat habit.

Daniel Bryan joins a long list of athletes—including Mac Danzig, Jake Shields, and Rich Roll—who have teamed up with peta2 to promote a vegetarian diet.

Transcript Of Wrestling News Live's Shawn Michaels Interview From June 20th 2011

WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels was a guest on this week's edition of Wrestling News Live(located at on Monday hosted by JJ and Trey. The “Showstoppa” joined WNL for a 70 minute interview that can be heard at starting at the 80 minute

Below are some of the highlights:

Shawn’s thoughts on Scott Hall missing his Hall Of Fame induction:

You have to admire him, You’ve gotta start somewhere and I remember Kevin telling me and me thinking “you know what, that’s gotta be a good start. The fact that he is aware of it and I think that’s good as that’s what we all want for(him). I know everything one is synthetic and everyone cares about Scott and we all do and I was actually really happy to hear that he’s at least aware of it to the point where he can make a statement like that. As we discussed that night, we all know there is going to be several other Hall Of Fame moments for some of the dudes in our group.

Shawn’s thoughts on his induction into the Hall Of Fame:

It’s one of those things like winning your first world championship that you always tell people about and its moments like that when it is all real. It doesn’t matter what all the nay-Sayers say about our line of work and those moments, it’s the most real thing in the world and to get to share it with your present family and your work family and the guys that were the only family I had for many years on the road and being acknowledged in my line of work and having all the people, my extended family (there), it is very easy for me to well up and cry like a baby when I think about it because there is such an attachment for me to all of those people….. There is such a special connection from me to the people and I think it’s because they they knew how I felt about that line of work and how much it meant to me.

Shawn’s thoughts on how the product has changed.

I don’t wana be one of those old timers that continually knock everything because on one hand it’s very tough on the younger talent these days as they are not having the luxury of what we had which is years of experience and countless matches with countless different styles before we came to the WWE. They are getting thrown from the frying pan into the fire

Shawn’s thoughts a return to WWE

One, honestly I really don’t watch much right now and I do that purposely. I’ll tune in every now and then and I’ll tune in for a little bit then see something that I don’t care for and I go away. The reason I do that is because if I watch and I see something I don’t like and I turn away, I know that I’m not ready to come back and look at it objectively yet . I think there will be a time when I’d like to come back and help and contribute in the back if needed but to do that, I feel like I need to have a real washed, clean, objective, constructive point of view and for me personally, it feels like whilst I was working, I did not watch that much as I always felt I was too close to it to be objective.

Shawn’s thoughts on John Morrison:

His name comes up a lot, and a lot of people say “I like him but…” and he’s a young guy and it’s my understanding that he just got injured and as much as you hate hearing about a guy getting injured, it’s never good but at the same time, I remember telling John Cena when he got hurt, “Dude they need to see you come back”. It’s part of the “warrior making” stage and so I think John (Morrison) some time but as the kids like to say, “He has to get some street cred”, He’s got to take some lumps, gotta take on a couple of scars, get beaten up a little but I certainly think there is potential there. He certainly has all the physical attributes that he needs. He is a sweetheart of a guy and I think that is what hurts him, I just don’t think he has a bad bone in his body.

Shawn on why he choose not to hold the World Title one last time:

No, No I didn’t. That’s(holding the belt) is a full time commitment and the guy that does that needs to make every show, doing absolutely everything and that just wasn’t for me. The deal with me coming back was still worth quite a bit but I didn’t do all the live events and I was taking darn near every Wrestlemania off. That was just something, it was more important to me just to come back and I’m gona be honest, I like it more than the way I did. I know there are some people like “You only held the world title this many times” I just didn’t think it (was fair), I think the guy who does that needs to be the work horse and I no way wanted to be that.
