(from 411, who in turn borrowed it from the New York Daily News)
"Tanya Ballinger and Kitana Baker, the two girls in Miller Beer's popular catfight commercial, will appear at the WWE WrestleMania XIX press conference today. The conference will take place at ESPN Zone in Manhattan.
The two will also appear at the PPV itself."
With star power like that, I wonder if they are holding a big name back to be announced next week on RAW. My money is on Gabe Kaplan.
Hey, based on that commercial, those two can already work better than Torrie.
"next to of course god america i love you land of the pilgrims' and so forth oh say can you see by the dawn's early my country tis of centuries come and go and are no more what of it we should worry in every language even deafanddumb thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry by jingo by gee by gosh by gum why talk of beauty what could be more beaut- iful than these heroic happy dead who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter they did not stop to think they died instead then shall the voice of liberty be mute?"
I'm sure with the recent HLA and GGW themed antics that Vinces perverted little mind will soon turn a mere appearance by these two nobody's into a Bikini-Jello fight semi main event...WITH THE TWINSS!! It's sad that a great card like this has to be cheapened by crap that I'm sure Lawler will cream his tights over.
"You go ahead and talk about your psalms and your "John 3:16", Well "Austin 3:16" says I just whupped your ASS!!".
Originally posted by hayabusaI wonder how Trish, Victoria, and Jazz are gonna feel when their match gets less hyped and over-shadowed by these two girls rolling around in the ring for 5 minutes. You know that's what will happen.
Which is a real shame, because I'd pay a lot more to see Trish and Victoria roll around in a catfight than the Miller girls. Jazz...uh...can be the ref.
Forget Brock! TRINITY is the Next Big Thing! Congrats to both Kid Kash and TRINITY~! on signing long-term deals with TNA!

So far, looks like a middling pool of celeb guests. Never know, though, Pete Rose could show up to give Kane something to do...
You can add Mary Tyler Moore to the list, as she was at Wrestlemania 6. While she was not an announced guest, she did give an on-screen interview (which, while brief, did last longer than the Hart Foundation's match on that day's card). Her appearance was also the subject of a humorous ancedote recounted by Bobby Heenan in his book "Bobby The Brain" (published by Triumph Books):
At Wrestlemania 6, I'll never forget a woman who was sitting in the front row with her husband. I managed the Barbarian that evening, and he used to wear a leather and fur vest with chains. It looked like he found it on the road. After the match, this woman and her husband came backstage, and she approached me to see if she could have his vest.
I went back and asked the Barbarian and he said, "No."
I told her he wasn't there.
The woman turned out to be Mary Tyler Moore. What the hell was she going to do with leather, fur, and chains?

I'm thinking Natalie Cole?
Yeah, she was there talking to Todd P. when everyone was cheering along to "Real American".
But does it count when they just put celeb's in the crowd to say "Oh, HEY! Look who bought a ticket!"?
If so, then you'd need to add Dennis Miller, Martin Short, and Michael Clarke Duncan to Wrestlemania 2000.
I have a special friend. He's the baby Jesus and I love him and...and...he don't give me no s**t and he don't f**k around and he's just the f**king coolest guy and I wanna say I love the baby Jesus.I can't say enough.I love the baby Jesus and I think...he's the best thing and he's really great when he shares his love for everbody.You know what I mean?I can't even see a manger without thinkin' about him,eh?I just love the Jesus.I've only been into him for a couple of hours though,but I'm really into him. --Bruce McCulloch
I'm surprised they had Race in this match at this point, as he wasn't involved in any issues with Hogan until the post Mania III time period, and Piper was consumed with Orton and Adonis at this point.
