So the embassy has Noot’s new papers and her passport. I’m not exactly sure what happens next due to translation issues, but I believe they should be attaching a visa to her passport within a week. I’m not going to get too excited just yet because we’ve had setbacks before, but I’m hoping this is the last bit of waiting we have to do. I sent an email to the embassy to get some clarification and peace of mind.
In wrestling news, one of my favorite wrestlers, William Regal, just got suspended for 60 days due to substance abuse issues. It sucks because he just started a pretty high profile program a few weeks ago. He’s had drug and alcohol problems in the past, but the rumors are that he was nabbed for performance enhancers. I thought that he looked more cut than usual on Monday’s show, so it wouldn’t surprise me if he was taking something.
This is the second time in the last few months that a wrestler got suspended in the middle of a big push (Jeff Hardy is the other one). It’s a little sad and a little crazy. I know there’s a lot of pressure and an intense travel schedule in their line of work, but it’s also rare that guys with their physical makeups — Hardy is small and Regal is a bit soft — get big opportunities. I’m bummed that Regal blew this chance.
