— As reported on Sunday night, new WWE Divas Champion Maryse suffered a dislocated knee cap injury at the Smackdown brand house show in Raleigh, North Carolina. She was taken backstage on a stretcher during the ordeal. Fortunately for Maryse, her injury is not nearly as severe as initially believed, so she won’t be forfeiting her newly won Divas Championship. Smackdown announcer Jim Ross posted the latest edition of SmackDown This! on the WWE Universe site today and said Maryse “suffered a dislocated kneecap recently but isn’t expected to miss much ring time.” Maryse was kept off last night’s double Smackdown taping in New Jersey, so she won’t be appearing on the January 2 and 9 editions of Smackdown.
— Former WWE Divas Champion Michelle McCool released a personal statement on www.MichelleMcCool.net, thanking Josie, who runs the website, as well as her fans. Once again, McCool acknowledges fans who try to bring her down with negative comments, but is thankful to the many fans who appreciate her. McCool wrote: “Through the ups and downs, I feel like you guys have been on this journey with me! There are always those who try to bring you down, pretend they actually “know” you, judge you based on what they’ve heard or read and think that we control what happens with our “entertainment” on tv….NOT you!!! For that, I say thank you. It’s so refreshing when you have loyal, faithful fans that appreciate you (whether they like us or hate us) for what you do….for going out there night after night and pouring our heart & soul into the art of wrestling.” You can read her complete statement at the following link.
