WrestleMania billboard rumor killer (Photo), AJ Lee still advertised
- As noted earlier, AJ Lee was asked on Twitter earlier this week if she was 100% healed from her injury, and she simply replied, "nope." For what it's worth, while she was removed from some advertising for this weekend's WWE live events in New Jersey, she remains on the official website for the Izod Center, which will be hosting Saturday night's live event. NJ.com also has a short article here about Saturday's event that mentions AJ, however they could simply be going off of the arena's website.
- Local radio ads are calling Saturday's event a "Farewell to the Izod Center." As noted earlier, the arena was originally scheduled to be the site of this year's SummerSlam, however the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority board officially approved a plan to shut down the arena. WWE released a statement last week noting that the company "is currently looking at alternatives," and is confident that they will find "an equivalent, if not better, option for Summerslam."
- We were able to verify that the WrestleMania billboard photo that was posted this morning is not real. It was taken from the billboard below for The Ultimate Fighter, which still featured Brock Lesnar in 2010:
