Wedding bells are in the air for WWE superstar Mike "The Miz" Mizanin and his new bride, former WWE diva Maryse Ouellet. The couple tied the knot earlier in the week during a picturesque ceremony in the Bahamas.
Ouellet confirmed the news with a photo of her engagement ring and wedding band, both sporting some very nice-looking diamonds. "Officially Mrs. Mizanin," she writes. TMZ has photos from the ceremony, and the couple couldn't look any happier.
Among those in attendance were fellow WWE superstars Dolph Ziggler and Zack Ryder, along with WWE alums John Hennigan (John Morrison) and Barbie Blank (Kelly Kelly). This is the first marriage for both Ouellet and Mizanin.
Welcome to this week’s write-up of Monday Night Raw.
The show begins with Randy Orton making his way to the ring, the WWE World Heavyweight Titles around his shoulders, to a chorus of boo’s from the fans. The announcers talk about Randy Orton defending his title against five other men inside the Elimination Chamber at the next PPV. Orton talks about it too, and is greeted with a loud crowd chant of “Cm Punk” who has recently been involved in a controversy in WWE after rumours emerged that he has “walked out” in the past week. Orton says he will beat Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Antonio Cesaro, Christian and Sheamus in said match at the PPV and go on to defeat Batista in the main event of WrestleMania. The fans continue to boo Orton. Triple H’s music plays and “The Game” makes his way out alongside Stephanie McMahon. »

Randy Orton continued to whine about the odds being stacked against him, leading the Authority to book him against each of the "Elimination Chamber" competitors over the next few weeks. It started off with Orton vs. Bryan for "Raw's" main event.
The two had a hard-hitting match that was a true highlight of the night. Not even an interference by Kane would take away from it. Having Kane run in shows that WWE is likely moving forward with Bryan vs. Triple H at "Wrestlemania XXX, »
It’s a sad day in the world of wrestling. On Jan. 14, women’s wrestling pioneer Mae Young passed away at the age of 90. Now celebrities who were touched by her through their lives are speaking out and remembering the legend.
From Dwyane Johnson (Aka “The Rock”) to Triple H, some of the biggest names in wrestling have taken to Twitter to share what they loved about Mae Young, who professionally wrestled from the 1940s until 2013.
Celebs Remember Mae Young
“She’s a wrestling pioneer. I truly had deep affection & respect for “Aunty Mae” Young. Rip. #IMissUMae,” Dwayne wrote on Twitter, sharing an adorable photo (above).

It was inaccurately reported that WWE legend, Mae Young, 90, had died Thursday, Jan. 9.
Young, who is very ill, was reported dead by The Post and Courier, a Charleston, S.C. paper – the report has since been corrected.
Before the truth was publicized, news of Young’s ‘death’ had already circulated, and many wrestling stars tweeted their condolences to the women’s wrestling trailblazer.

Victoria Elizabeth Crawford. What a fox! To paraphrase the immortal Zack Ryder (another example of WWE incompetence), are you serious sister? If you watch every facet of WWE programming like I do or what I like to call the WWE 5 (Raw, Smackdown, Main Event, Superstars, Nxt) and you seriously know your wrestling you would know just how underutilized this True diva is.
In fact she in my opinion should be main eventing with current champion and saviour of the WWE Divas division Aj Lee, as alongside that sexy little crazy chick she is simply everything that is right about the current women’s roster. She has it all, everything a female sports entertainer should represent.
And the fact that Total Divas has all but buried this amazing member of the female species is quite simply not only what is wrong about wrestling, »
