"I just thought you'd like to know. I was just banned from Amy Dumas's website adoreyourpets.org. I was one of the first people to start using her site but with a few words I was banned, the 1st person ever to be banned from the light hearted site. Why?
I mentioned the whole Amy/Matt situation. Just saying I’d like to hear what Amy says & upon being told I couldn’t talk about it, I just wrote ‘has no opinion’. It seems Amy has given the mods of her site strict instructions to ban anybody speaking about it. Whereas Matt’s forum is fine about people talking about it.
It seems Amy is very defensive about it. Seems like she has/had something to hide. That’s why we’ve had no comment from her so far. She was in the wrong and she knows it.
Post this on the site and let the world know Amy KNOWS she’s wrong and if afraid to admit it. We’ve all been wronged by scornful women before. Make sure you get the world out & tell them about Lita!
I actually contacted the site, just to see if they have a response. They said they would answer questions, but haven’t gotten back to me yet. It could be the Yahoo mail server, or they could be blowing me off.
In their defense, A.D.O.R.E. isn’t really a fansite so much as it’s an advocacy site. It’s there for a purpose other than to promote Lita. Matt Hardy’s site is there specifically for you to talk about Matt Hardy. I can see why they wouldn’t want that distraction from their cause. It’s similar to why you wouldn’t see people arguing over whether Charlton Heston was the best Moses on the NRA message board.
Book Recommendation: If you’re in the mood for a lite novel about dark subject matter, check out Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho.

Back in, Triple H delivers a spinebuster and finishes with the Pedigree. After the match, Triple H takes the sledgehammer to superhero. 3/4*
Don’t you feel better for knowing that. Btw, Candace is a much better actress on Raw.
Kane is your sixth man. Christian attacks early, but Kane shrugs him off. Kane misses a charge, and Tomko hits a cheapshot. Crowd is all over Christian for sucking. Christian with a sleeper on Kane. Kane reverses to a sideslam. A tilt-o-whirl sideslam by Kane sets up a chokeslam attempt. Christian ducks it but runs into a boot.

No jokes from me. Not intentional ones anyway. They actually start out with some wrestling. Jericho grabs a reverse armbar. Edge forces a break in the corner. Jericho yanks his arm down on the ropes and dropkicks him in the shoulder. Jericho with the cross armlock. JR and Lawler talk about Edge getting screwed out of a title shot at Taboo Tuesday. JR responds, “How long is Edge gonna ride that horse?” You know, it’s hard enough not to make jokes without JR setting me up. Jericho with a running enzuigiri and a springboard dropkick. We come back from commercial to Jericho booting Edge in the face. Edge catches Jericho going up and superplexes him. Edge delivers a sliding dropkick that knocks Jericho to the outside. Back in, Edge applies a bodyscissors. Jericho comes back but runs into a kneelift. Edge tries the Jericho vertical splash on the ropes, but Jericho pops up and clotheslines him. Jericho with a DDT. A Huracanrana gets two. Jericho goes back to the arm. The Lionsault misses and Edge boots him in the mug for two. Jericho uses an armtwist to counter the Edgecution. Jericho goes for the Walls, but Edge shoves him into the ref. Jericho charges into another boot. Edge goes for a spear, but Jericho sidesteps it and sends him to the outside. Edge grabs the ladder — which is basically just an advertisement for the Mania match. He tries to use it, but Jericho drop toeholds him into it and delivers the Lionsault. No ref. Edge lowblows him with the ladder and delivers the Edgecution for the win. ***1/2
Funny. Shelton climbs the ladder to pose, and Benoit shakes his head like his kid’s misbehaving in Walmart. They do some nice wrestling before getting pissed and chopping the hell out of one another. Benoit tosses him over the top rope. Benoit tries a tope…this can’t be good. Indeed, Benjamin dives out of the way and Benoit slams into the ladder. Shelton counters the Rolling Germans to a rollup for two. Benoit makes him pay by getting three more. The diving headbutt misses, though. Benjamin gets an Oklahoma Roll for two. Benoit counters a suplex to the Crippler Crossface, but Benjamin reverses that to a backslide for two. Benoit ducks the leg whip and counters to the Crippler Crossface. Benjamin tries to roll through, but Benoit hangs on for the submission win. **1/4
Batista shoves Flair down. They exchange poses, and Flair pokes him in the eye. Flair lays in a few shots, but Batista Luger’s him. Batista backdrops him and gets a few mounted punches in the corner. FLAIR FLOP~! Batista gets in an argument with Triple H, enabling Flair to sneak in and chop block his leg. Flair chop blocks his leg again and stomps on it. Figure-four! Triple H helps from the outside, but Batista reverses it. Batista no-sells some chops but runs into a reverse elbow. Flair goes up to the groans of the familiar North Carolina crowd. Batista powerslams him and delivers a spinebuster. Batista does the “thumbs down.” Triple H tries to save Flair, but Batista dispatches him and finishes Flair with the Demonbomb. The crowd was a little mixed, so you wonder if it was a good idea to put Batista in there with Flair so close to home. Triple H clips his leg out from under him and grabs a sledgehammer from under the ring. You can never have too many sledgehammers. Batista snatches it away from him and snaps it over his knee. **
Final Thoughts: Pretty good show, dominated by two WrestleMania matches — the Money in the Bank match and Batista vs. Triple H. I’m not entirely sold on the six-man ladder concept just because you’re putting a lot of eggs in one basket. Orton’s promo gave him a little bit of edge back, which is a very good thing for his career. It will be interesting to see the reactions of the fans at Mania. Solid show and, fortunately, no backstage shenanigans seeped through.
