Good, I was afraid this angle wasn't going to be stupid enough.
Vickie Guerrero is the wife of WWE World Heavyweight Champion Edge, the lover of Edge’s rival Big Show and now, surprisingly, an expectant mother.
It was confirmed early this morning that the acting General Manager of SmackDown and interim GM of Raw is pregnant. According to eye-witness accounts, Guerrero visited the El Paso, Texas office of obstetrician/gynecologist Dr. Michael Keys Tuesday afternoon seeking pre-natal care. Due to patient/doctor confidentiality, Keys’ office could neither confirm nor deny that Guerrero is a patient of the ob-gyn and is seeking pre-natal care.
Although our wishes for a healthy pregnancy are extended to Guerrero, WWE.com would be remiss were it not to acknowledge the awkward situation in which Guerrero may now find herself. After all, it was revealed just three weeks ago that Guerrero was carrying on an extra-marital affair with her husband’s rival and one-third of the Triple Threat Match at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, Big Show.
The affair will undoubtedly lead some to speculate on the paternity of the expectant child.
Neither Guerrero, Edge nor Big Show have responded to repeated requests for comment. Check in with WWE.com for the latest on this breaking story.

Seems to me that this is the most important part to quote

They've barely produced any watchable programming since before the Royal Rumble. It never occurred to me that this might be an April Fool's Day joke - just more of the same.
Since I don't think anyone out there actually believes she's really pregnant (or married to Edge, or screwing Big Show), what's the joke? "We made our storyline stupider a few days before the show?" Well, okay. You got me - I hope that helps your buyrate.
Well, listen, I'm going to cut you some slack. April Fools Day jokes are only funny if it's so crazy that you don't believe it at first. Then the details make it seem believeable, then you find out it's not real. It's a roller coaster ride.
This doesn't work because it's par for the course for WWE. A real April Fools joke would need to be about inducting Ultimate Warrior or Randy Savage into the Hall of Fame, which is the kind of thing WWE wouldn't even joke about.
Normally I'd say that claiming Vince was dead would be on that list, but they've already done that a couple times.
The plan is not to start a 24 hour wrestling channel (which would rock), but the idea is to create mini PPVs. Maybe pay 10 bucks for a few hours of programming. Pay 10 buck and get a day of ECW. That is how Dave M. saw it anyway.
