Happy Thanksgiving to WWE & Fans!
Happy Thanksgiving to all WWE fans and readers of WWE Characters the Blog! This has been a great year for the blog and I'm thankful for all visitors, commentors, and faithful readers for continuing to follow along! Things will only get better in 2009 as the WWE continues improving its great brand of sports entertainment.
This Thanksgiving 2008 the WWE and its fans have much to be thankful for, such as recent returning superstars, less injuries, less controversy and brand new title holders. While it's hard to speak for the WWE superstars, we can venture some guesses as to what several wrestlers should or might be thankful for this Thanksgiving 2008!
- John Cena is thankful for good health. Cena made his return from injury, surgery & rehab to good health at at 2008 Survivor Series where he claimed the World Heavyweight title.
- The WWE is thankful for the return of Cena which helped Raw's rating surge, bringing in a 3.3 rating after it had been getting ratings in the 3.0 range.
- Melina is also thankful for health. The WWE diva made her return to Raw 11.24.08 and looked better than ever in a six diva tag match!
- JBL is thankful for prosperity. The self-proclaimed wrestling God and business tycoon may have lost at Survivor Series, but he still commands a nice personal fortune & business empire including his own energy drink and stock portfolio.
- Edge is thankful for opportunity. The Rated-R Superstar & Ultimate Opportunist was able to enter the Triple Threat WWE title match at 2008 Survivor Series and come away as the champion. He may also be thankful for Vickie Guerrero, the Smackdown GM who granted him the opportunity.
- The Bella Twins are thankful for family. The twin sisters have taken the internet by storm, been named the hottest twins in sports by CNNSI, and racked up several wins thanks to each other's help on Smackdown!
- WWE Diva Alicia Fox is thankful for a job. The WWE Diva has been given a spot on the ECW roster along with DJ Gabriel, a dancing wrestler she met overseas in the aftermath of her brief affair with Edge on Smackdown.
- Stephanie McMahon is also thankful for her job. The daughter of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon has now replaced Mike Adamle as GM of the show, at least temporarily. There may be a bit of a holiday sibling rivalry going on between her and Shane, so time will tell how Raw responds.
