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.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
