For two decades, Brooks was half of  Brooks & Dunn, the highest selling duo in country music history.  The duo sold more than 30 million records, scored 23 number one hits and won an impressive 80 major music industry awards.

“The most electrifying man of all of entertainment is hosting the most electrifying event of all of entertainment!” Dwayne Johnson yelled on Monday Night Raw.

The most overbearing hyperbole in all entertainment is of course WrestleMania XXVII that will grace the airwaves just after April Fool’s Day.

Johnson, who answers to The Rock, who hung up his wrestling leotard for success as a starring actor seven years back is apparently far enough between movies to return to his first love.

O.J. SIMPSON BACK IN THE NEWS; REPORTEDLY BEATEN UNCONSCIOUS IN PRISON

O.J. Simpson 21 years ago

O.J. Simpson was reportedly beaten so severely in the Lovelock Correctional Center rec yard that he spent three weeks in the prison hospital.

The National Enquirer says that a snitch tells them the attack left Simpson in severe melancholy where he won’t go outside of his jail cell.

The story was buried by prison officials until (according to the Enquirer) they uncovered it.

Simpson is at the Nevada facility for a nine (or more) year sentence from his bizarre armed caper with a Vegas memorabilia dealer nearly four years ago.

According to the Enquirer‘s other sources, the fight had to do with Simpson‘s female conquest bragging and the rage of some race supremacists.
