- We noted last week that former WCW star Scotty Riggs was hospitalized for stomach ulcers. Riggs wrote this weekend that after tests, a mass was found in his gallbladder that was 90% non-cancerous. He is having surgery this week to have it removed. Riggs is also apparently recovering from a case of pneumonia.

– John Cena is currently the #2 athlete with the most social influence or “Klout” online. He is right behind NFL star Chad Ochocinco. Cena has over 1 million Twitter followers and over 11 million Facebook fans. Ochocinco has over 2 million Facebook fans and over 3 million Twitter followers. Other WWE stars in the top 20 include CM Punk, currently at #8, and Zack Ryder at #13.

WWE Diva Eve Torres makes the list at #36 and is the only female athlete in the top 40. Eve currently has over 150,000 Facebook fans and over 400,000 Twitter followers.
