Ok it's a kinda neat deal but it was the article that really had me laughing with lines like this:

"to sell everything from ringtones with famous wrestlers' voices to graphics and videos, including weekly matches and the annual spring tournament."

Annual spring tournament? Did I miss something?

"But WWE's 15 million weekly viewers are the ones who will ultimately decide if the phone screen can deliver a clear enough image of favorite super stars such as Hacksaw Jim Duggan or his curvaceous female counterparts."

On Raw, Vince did a bit where he was talking on his cell phone, then bitched about the call quality and said he was going to switch to Cingular. I assumed WWE had made some sort of deal with Cingular, but I didn't know what it was. This explains so much. Doesn't explain the curvaceous female Hacksaw Duggan, though.

It's easy. they are referring to all the Hoooooooo's out there?

Bizar that they mention Duggan. Like anybody would want images of him.
Now a ringtone? I wouldn't be shocked if that sold well..




*sigh* Why bother?

What on earth is this 'spring tournament'?

Kinda reminds me of the blurb you would get on the back of WCW videos when Warner Bros were releasing them around 2000.

In a choice between Dupree and Orton, I've gotta go with Orton. Orton fits the role to a T. Dupree's arrogant character is portrayed a little too goofy to fit in with Flair and Hunter. Plus, Dupree just doesn't look like he's ready to me.
