Tool guitarist Adam Jones proposed to his girlfriend Korin ringside at the WWE Royal Rumble event this past Sunday night (January 27). Video footage can be found by following the link below.
Jones, who is an avid WWE follower, arranged for a surprise message to appear on the mammoth WWE titantron. It read: “Korin, Adam Jones wants to ask you something… ‘Will you marry me?’”
Jones then unveiled the ring and waited for Korin’s response. WWE cameras filmed the entire proposal and Korin can clearly be seen saying “Yes.”
The 2013 Royal Rumble pay-per-view was also notable for the explosive and surprising return of Fozzy vocalist and wrestling icon Chris Jericho, who took a break from WWE last year to play on the 2012 Uproar Festival tour.

Meanwhile, Tool have been forced to delay the writing sessions for their first studio album in seven years, following the injury of an unidentified member of the bands:
The following message was posted on the band’s website on Jan. 26 as a Tool newsletter: “The New Year started off on a bad note as far as writing and arranging sessions for Tool’s next record. For the most part this was due to a ‘minor’ accident on a Vespa scooter (slick road conditions being the cause) by a certain band member that resulted in several broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder. Because of the physical nature of the musical instrument involved, 9 DAYS of jamming were lost, although I’m happy to report that the person involved is recovering nicely, so much so, in fact, that writing sessions resumed last Monday (January 21), despite it being a holiday for many.”
Tool’s last album, ’10,000 Days’ was released in 2006 and reached No. 1 on the Billboard top 200 charts. By the end of 2007, the Grammy award winning album had sold more than 2.75 million copies and had received a Platinum certification by the RIAA.
