WWE Stars Lana and Rusev

We're Engaged!!

10/11/2015 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1011-main-lana-wwe-rusev-wwe-tmz-3WWE star Rusev might be a tough guy in the ring but he's a softie for his real-life girlfriend Lana ... because he asked her to marry him. 

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ Rusev proposed to his WWE manager gf last month at their Nashville home. We're told Rusev proposed in the couple's swimming pool and filmed the whole thing.

Judging by the size of the rock ... we're guessing it was pretty easy for Lana to say yes. 


It's interesting, Rusev recently got engaged to WWE Diva Summer Rae on SmackDown but we're told it was just for the show ... Lana takes the title as his real life fiancé. 


Jay Leno


... Give That Man a Talk Show!

10/8/2015 7:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He's battled Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior ... but the Iron Sheik's next opponent could be Jimmy Fallon -- 'cause Jay Leno says the WWE legend could totally make it as a late night host! 

He may have a point ... The Sheik is super entertaining, very VERY opinionated ... and topical when ranting on Twitter. For example: 

Sheik On Matt Barnes:

Sheik On the Philadelphia Eagles: 

Sheik on His Place in WWE History:

Sheik On Mondays: 

Sheik On Uzo Aduba: 

Sheik On Spoiler Alerts:

So, give this dude the 'Tonight Show' or what??

World's Tallest Actress

Protect Me From 'Amazon' Shooter

9/27/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Lindsay Kay Hayward says a guy with a gun has made her life miserable and she needs a judge to protect her from harassment and harm.

Lindsay -- the nearly 7 footer on TLC's "My Giant Life" -- claims her manager has guns, practices shooting them and has "joked that the only way to 'put an Amazon down' is to shoot them." 

The former WWE professional wrestler says it's not just about her safety ... she says former manager Brad Konia is on a campaign to destroy her personally and professionally. She says Konia has contacted her employers and potential employers and slandered her. She says he's done the same on her website.

She humble brags a bit, telling the judge she's especially worried Konia will sully her upcoming guest spot on "Grey's Anatomy." 

For his part ... Brad tells TMZ he's never threatened to harm Lindsay ... not even jokingly. He believes Lindsay's gripes stem from an ongoing lawsuit he filed against her over money.

The judge didn't buy the emergency and rejected Lindsay's petition for a temporary restraining order.

After Neck Injury in Seth Rollins Match

Exclusive Details

Sting is recovering at home Monday, after sustaining a serious neck injury ... so serious doctors are not able to give a long-term prognosis, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Sting was seriously hurt Sunday night in the WWE championship match against Seth Rollins. We're told he was injured several times during the match,  the most serious being the powerbomb against the turnbuckle which caused the neck injury. 

Our wrestling sources tell us, doctors did a CAT scan at the hospital Sunday and thankfully there were no fractures. Sting was released Monday afternoon and is on his way home.  He's able to walk but is in significant pain.

Sting's manager says the wrestler is in "remarkable health and resiliency," especially for his age ... 56.

The manager says, "The greatest damage to his body took place before the match was over, but being the true professional he is and among the hardest workers to ever step foot in the ring, he insisted to see the match through to the end."


WWE's Virgil

Trump Campaigns Like a WWE Star

... He Learned It From Me

9/19/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0917-virgil-donald-trump-TMZ-01If Donald Trump makes it to the White House, he better hold a seat at the inauguration for WWE legend Virgil ... who says the Donald got his over-the-top persona from talking to him.

Virgil watched Trump verbally spar with Carly Fiorina and Jeb Bush at this week's debate, and thinks he was simply giving the crowd what it wants -- a great show. Virgil says he met Donald at WWE events in the '80s and '90s, and claims the business mogul picked his brain for tips on being a great showman.

Now, he believes his swagger tips could take Donald all the way, telling us ... "People like the spectacle. People want to see confidence. He is confident just like a wrestler."

Virgil, who is a Republican, had one more piece of advice for Donald -- "All people want to know is that they can pay the bills and live a good life. They want confidence they can eat." 


Hulk Hogan

Lands Big New Endorsement Deal

... What N-Word Scandal?

9/11/2015 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0911-hulk-hogan-tmz-02Former WWE Hulk Hogan is bouncing back from the n-word scandal that ended his WWE career ... by signing on as the spokesman for a major sports gambling website.  

Hulk is teaming up with ... one of the leaders in Daily Fantasy Sports, which just so happens to be the biggest thing in sports gambling these days.

The site is clearly aware Hulk has some baggage these days -- it's been almost two months since he was dropped by the WWE for using the n-word back in the day -- but a spokesman says, "We all make mistakes and deserve second chances."

Hulk adds, "I am looking forward to connecting with all my Hulkamaniacs during some of the biggest games of the year and at upcoming Fan Pick live events in the near future."

And if you mention Hulk's name when you sign up -- in the form of the code Hulk25 -- you get an extra something in your account. 

Say your prayers, take your vitamins ... and when in doubt, take the points.

I Never Tweeted N-Word

0910-jasmin-areebi-facebookWWE NXT Diva Jasmin was the victim of a racist Twitter hack and will not lose her job in the ring ... according to an investigation by the WWE.

Jasmin recently came under fire for racist tweets she allegedly wrote back in 2011 and fans were calling for the diva to get the boot. However, a rep for the WWE tells TMZ, "Jasmin's Twitter account was used without her knowledge when she was 16 and 17 years old." 

There were three tweets in question, the most disturbing was quoted by Jasmin and said, "Ugh ... fu**ing ni**ers ... that's why I chose white folk. Hmph." Jasmin followed the quoted tweet with, "word."

Things didn't go so well for Jasmin's fellow-diva Zahra Schreiber who was fired last month after photos of swastikas she posted in 2012 resurfaced online.

I'm Not Anti-Semitic!

0908-zahra-schreiber-INSTAGRAM-01Ousted WWE Diva Zahra Schreiber is taking full responsibility for the Nazi photos that resulted in her firing from the WWE, but she wants it to be known ... she's "in no way, shape or form an anti-Semite."

Schreiber, the girlfriend of WWE star Seth Rollins, responded to her firing by apologizing to anyone who was offended by the old photos ... one of which featured a "My Little Pony" in full Hitler garb ... and admitting the images were "insensitive and in poor taste."

0831-subasset-zahra-instagram-9Schreiber says her interest in the Holocaust stems from a relative that took part in the movement to end the Nazi occupation of Germany. She says she's also visited the Dachau Concentration Camp in Germany and posted a photo showing "how disturbed I was by the entire place." 

She ended her apology post by saying, "Everything I’ve worked for and dreamt of is gone. In an instant, I lost it all ... I hope those I’ve offended can forgive me. All I can do now is learn and move forward trying to be better every day."

0907-wwe-divas-restaurant-fight-TMZ-01WWE Divas Alicia Fox and Paige took a break from inflicting pain upon each other and combined forces against a drunk bar patron.

A waiter at Supano's Prime Steakhouse, Seafood, and Pasta in Baltimore tells us the Divas were grabbing a drink late Sunday night when one of the regular barflies came in and began harassing them by taking pictures and videos. 

We're told Paige and Alicia squared off against the lady ... and all hell then broke loose as drinks flew from both corners ... mostly margaritas.

WWE is in Baltimore for Monday Night RAW ... hopefully they hide the glassware.
