PLAYERS: Shawne Merriman
Shawne Merriman isn’t becoming a WWE superstar anytime in the immediate future. Merrimen had posted a picture of a ring burn he got across his neck at the WWE Performance Center earlier this week and some believed that he may have signed with the company. However, TMZ reports that according to several sources Merrimen has signed no deal and no offer was made. According to the sources, Triple H invited Merrimen to check out the facility and that he was just “having fun” at the center. Merrimen reportedly had a great time and WWE’s trainers enjoyed having him there.
