– TNA star Davey Richards recently spoke with Under The Mat Radio and commented on his WWE tryout with partner Eddie Edwards last year:
“We did a one week tryout for them and that was about it. It’s not somewhere where I longed to work for their travel schedule doesn’t work for me. I’m not moving down there and getting trained how to wrestle again I’ve already been trained and if I don’t’ have it now then I won’t have it.”
– As noted, today is the last day that Jim Ross is officially under contract to WWE. He tweeted the following today:
“It’s a day filled w/ mixed emotions. WWE tenure ends officially @ midnight. Great run. Best 21 years ever. Now..what’s next? Lots!! #blessed”
– Cesaro recently spoke with MyNews13 in Orlando to promote last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings. Cesaro noted that WWE is always adding new things to the Performance Center and that they now have a full-sized ramp like WWE uses at TV tapings for the NXT talents to practice on. Cesaro said it’s a very exciting time to be a wrestler because there’s a feeling within WWE that the younger generation of Superstars is getting ready to take over.
