- WWE recently signed 21 year old UK wrestler Andre Tyson to a developmental deal. He wrestled in the UK as MVK Valkabious.
- As noted before, former Ring of Honor star Chris Hero has finally been signed by WWE. Word is that Hero’s signing was delayed because he has a naturally elevated testosterone/epitestosterone level and WWE won’t sign talents who can’t pass the steroid test. It took months and many rounds of testing to prove that the high level was natural.
- The Miz was a big favorite of WWE management back when he won the WWE Title a year ago because of publicity that he brought the company. The feeling now is that Miz has regressed, both in the ring and on the microphone. The feeling is that when Miz was booked as a mid-carder before, he was hungry and forced officials to make him a headliner. Now he’s back to the mid-card and isn’t forcing them to push him. The botch with R-Truth on this week’s RAW didn’t do him any favors.
