– Nick “Eugene” Dinsmore is apparently replacing Joey Mercury as a coach in WWE developmental. Mercury is being set up for a producer’s job with the main roster.

– WWE recently released former MMA fighter Phil Friedman, who wrestled as James Bronson in NXT. He is the son of former Mattel and Toys R Us president Neil Friedman. It’s said that given he’s in his late 30’s, his signing was partially a favor. Bronson had been out of action for a while with an injury.

– People within WWE have acknowledged that Eva Marie comes off on TV like a star, whether she can wrestle or not. The idea is they have to figure out a role for her.

    Do what they did with Melina / Trish Stratus and form a tag-team around her instead of her around a tag-team.

    I seem to remember Trish Stratus just looking good and only afterwards developing as a wrestler.

    I just wish they’d let Eva Marie keep her original hair color; I don’t think the red complements her.

    I don’t care if she can wrestle or not, but let her just stay on my screen please. She’s a pleasure to the eyes.

    agree.. she really looks good but she looks really lost on live tv every time she’s on,, i think she can be a star if wwe does the right thing and mold her into one

  • Irishrhyno

    Are me and ‘the people within WWE’ watching the same Eva Marie? I dont watch Total Divas but she is a mess on Raw but who cares about Raw?
