– Mick Foley commented on the reaction to his public concern for WWE’s on-screen treatment of Eve.

“Not everyone agreed with my comments, but from time to time I feel like a should add my voice to certain subjects,” he tweeted.

Foley wrote this week that WWE is sending a “mixed message” with the name-calling toward Eve since it contradicts their anti-bullying campaign ‘be a STAR’ and John Cena’s motto to “Rise Above Hate.”

— SmackDown ring announcer Lilian Garcia appeared at Planet Hollywood in Times Square on Wednesday to promote her latest music video. Photos from her appearance are available here.

— WWE developmental wrestler Seth Rollins defeated Drew McIntyre at Saturday’s SmackDown live event in East Lansing, Michigan. He previously toured with the main roster in late December as he beat Tyson Kidd in singles matches at three consecutive SmackDown live events.

– April programming for WWE Classics On Demand will highlight Superstars and matches of the atypical variety. The synopsis reads: “All April, go “Over the Top” with WWE Classics On Demand as unusual Superstars and out of the ordinary matches are featured.”

— Former WWE Superstar Kevin Nash appears at Pro Wrestling World 1901 S. 12th St. Allentown, Pennsylvania on May 5 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

— Madusa, who formerly competed for WWE as Alundra Blayze, revealed Saturday on Facebook that she was recently contacted by her former employer. However, she would not disclose further details.

“Just want to let you all know I am NOT at the wrestle reunion in Miami or Canada. just to set the record straight! However…. did receive a call from WWE…… 🙂 and thats all i am say’n!!” she wrote.

Madusa is still in possession of the Women’s Championship she infamously dumped in a trash can on a 1995 episode of WCW Monday Nitro after defecting from the promotion. Through social media, she has been angling for a match with WWE where she would defend the title against reigning Divas Champion Beth Phoenix.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. In this entry, JR talks about Monday’s RAW, the build to WrestleMania 28, NFL star Peyton Manning’s future, women’s MMA & more. Here are some highlights of what JR wrote about:

Why do indy wrestlers signed by WWE go to FCW even though they are not officially ‘rookies?’ “To essentially go through orientation on a variety of matters plus, as a rule, everyone’s work needs to be tweaked to some degree. Being successful in the independent scene certainly helps one’s career, w/o fail, but that alone doesn’t make one a ready to go fit for WWE.”

What will it take to get Warrior in the WWE HOF? “I don’t know but I know that attempting to barter additional video projects such as a DVD, etc likely won’t get it done. I’m not in that loop, luckily, but basic, logical communication usually works best. No one I know has ever argued that Warrior isn’t deserving. Personally, I have no issue with his outspoken personality as it is Warrior being Warrior and exercising his First Amendment rights.”

Would I like to see @steveaustinBSR have one last match at a future Wrestlemania? “As a fan, “Oh Hell, Yeah!” But that’s a decision that’s completely Steve’s. Just an assumption but if it is going to happen, one wold think it would be at WM29 OR would he wait until the historic WM30? Personally, I can’t see the Texas Rattlesnake doing multiple matches but who knows?”
