Layla Surgery Update, Roddy Piper/WWE, Cena Grants Wish
– WWE Diva Layla has completed her first week of rehab after surgery for a torn ACL and MCL in her knee.
– Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, eighteen year old “Wish kid” and WWE Circle of Champions honoree Melyssa will get to meet John Cena at the July 25th WWE RAW from Hampton, Virginia. Melyssa wrote the following about meeting Cena on the Make-A-Wish website:
“At the beginning, when I heard that I was chosen for a wish I wanted to record a cd because I love to sing, but then when I thought about it again I realized that every time I watched wrestling, I went crazy and jumped all around while cheering for the wrestlers that I like. But when John Cena came out, I for sure would go wild. I like the way he stands up for what he believes is right and the way he never gives up. I for sure can’t wait ’til July 25 to meet him and have one of my many dreams come true.”
– WWE’s website interviewed Hall of Famer Roddy Piper about his voice work in the new Green Lantern: Emerald Knights animated series that comes out on June 7th. Piper was asked if being one of WWE’s most animated personalities has helped him in moving over to voice-acting and he said:
“From the perspective of getting up in front of millions of people, absolutely. With voice-overs, once you’re on, you have to just go. Back in the early days of WWE, I remember doing 20 interviews every Tuesday, one right after the other on different topics. That helps give you the confidence to use your voice, so I don’t think there’s a training ground like that that even compares to WWE.”
