- Many people speculated that Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih, who participated in Tough Enough last year and was brought in as a celebrity guest WrestleMania XXVIII week, would have a WWE contract waiting for her if she opted for a professional wrestling career. She, however, says that’s not the case.

When asked on Twitter whether she would be joining the organization again, she responded, “They don’t want me.”

- Billy Gunn, who appeared on Raw 1,000, is the newest addition to WWE.com’s Alumni section. WWE.com writes of the multi-time champion, “Whether he was a Smoking Gunn or a New Age Outlaw, Billy Gunn never let his mouth write a check that his butt couldn’t cash. Not down with that? The former Intercontinental Champion has two words for ya …” The bio does not acknowledge his “Rockabilly” or “Badass” monikers.

WWE officials were reportedly impressed with Gunn and his interactions with Shawn Michaels on Raw 1,000 and the belief is he’ll receive at least one match on a future televised show. More recently, he evaluated WWE developmental talent two weeks ago at Florida Championship Wrestling headquarters.

- The Mummy Returns starring The Rock airs this Sunday at 1:30 p.m. on TNT.
