Lillian Garcia Involved In Shouting Match
WWE has been referring to Colin Cassady as just Big Cass since being called up to the main roster. There was apparently some miscommunication during Monday’s WWE Raw broadcast in which Lillian Garcia mistakenly called Cass by his full name. This lead to a shouting match at ringside which was seen by some of the crowd, because she wasn’t meant to call him by his first name, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Former wrestler Joanie Laurer, better known as Chyna will have her brain donated for scientific research, according to the NY Daily News. Laurer was found dead in her home by her manager, Anthony Anzaldo, on April 20th.
Anzoldo told Daily that Laurer had been approached about joining the on-going concussion lawsuit against WWE but they decided she wouldn’t but they were interested in exploration of the effects a career in wrestling and a history of domestic violence had on the brain.
“My hope is that we can do it. I’m in the process of getting the permission to speak on behalf of family to tell the coroner it’s okay to release it.”
We’re not interested in the lawsuit at all,” Anzaldo said. “We’re just looking for (the researchers) to give us everything they can get.”
Anzaldo says the research will include Dr. Bennet Omalu, the pathologist who discovered CTE – Central traumatic encephalopathy.
