Striker wants rookies showcased: WWE’s Matt Striker suggested on Twitter that WWE should use the first hour of Raw to showcase unsigned talent. “Can the 1st hr of RAW be interactive ? 4-6 unsigned talent. Whomever has the most votes gets a match at the end of hour 1. Win n come back.” When one of his followers said his idea sounded like TNA’s Gut Check concept, Striker responded: “I dont watch, sadly, so I dont know if they are- good for them. A lot of good unsigned talent. WWE would make it unique tho.” ___________________________________________________________ Hulk Hogan re-files lawsuit against Gawker: Hulk Hogan has filed a new lawsuit against the Gawker.com website who published a clip from his leaked sex tape.
