– The Miz will be appearing tonight on Conan at 11pm.

– Regarding Chris Hero being signed by WWE, officials wanted to sign him a few months back when they signed his partner Claudio Castagnoli to FCW. Hero was going through the physical screening process. It’s believed that either WWE found something they wanted to take their time on double checking to make sure he’s fit to sign, or they stalled in contract negotiations. Hero hasn’t gone back to work for NOAH or ROH yet so it’s still possible he will pop up in FCW soon.

– Jim Ross, who was down at FCW evaluating talent this week, was asked by a fan when we will see Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine debut. He replied:

“Don’t see it being eminent. Lots of work to do.”

    High hopes for Kings of Wrestling. I really hope it works out they could be a small step towards breathing life into the tag team division

  • Jaime5150

    Matt cross should have won

  • Bill

    Why would Vince focus on Chris Hero? The Bella Twins are a higher priority to him, right?

  • Lobo-Tony


    Check out the wiktionary definition of “eminent”, it gave me a good laugh, I think either of them works in that sentence.

  • venom

    Andy will be like Puder and Maven. Forgotten!!

  • JIR

    The only reason Luke didn’t win is because someone said to Vince hey he looks just like Miz and A.Ry Andy won because Austin must have seen a better overall person in Andy all seriousness Martin Casaus would have won if he was not injured during the show

    @snark mark
    and wrestle who wwe has no tag teams

  • Snark Mark

    The Chris Hero contract negotiations remind me a little of what went down between WWE and Nigel McGuinness. Hopefully these two can work it all out. I’d love to see the Kings of Wrestling as WWE Tag Team Champions

  • Sammo

    I’m pretty sure Jim Ross said “Imminent”… Because if he said “eminent” then the sentence made no sense.

  • CC

    Jeremiah had been wrestling for a fraction of the time of Andy, and was 100 times better. Fuck knows how he won.

  • zach

    Another reason why Luke should of won. Already had more heel heat than most heels on the roster
