Loudwire got a chance to talk with Chris Jericho about the passing of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who reportedly passed away after committing suicide at the age of 52. Jericho said that he just saw Soundgarden last week at a show in Somerset, WI. He noted that 4 out of the big 5 grunge singers have passed away and it seems like there was a dark energy within the bands from the Seattle scene.
Check out his comments in the video below:
Former WWE/Impact Wrestling star Victoria (aka Tara aka Lisa Marie Varon) noted on Twitter that Impact Wrestling forgot to renew her contract and that’s why her run with the company ended. This was in response to a “Today in History” post by the Diva-Dirt website. In a 2013 interview with the VOC Nation podcast, she said, “TNA is out of the question. It wasn’t a good fit for me. I had a great run there, but it was very different from WWE. It made me appreciate WWE a lot.”
I am surprised that she hasn’t been offered a deal with one of the major companies. At the very least, she would be a great asset as a trainer/coach especially at the WWE Performance Center.
