– Regarding Alberto Del Rio, who debuts this week on Friday Night SmackDown, company officials are reportedly high on him due to the feeling that Rey Mysterio is one knee injury away from possible retirement and they need a new Hispanic star. Meanwhile, some wrestlers feel he’s aloof, which has some rubbed some of his peers the wrong way.

– As reported earlier, Welsh born wrestler Mason Ryan beat Alex Riley last Thursday to become the new Florida Heavyweight Champion. After winning the title, Ryan was telling people that he couldn’t believe he was given the strap as he felt he was far too green and didn’t deserve it. Many within WWE like Ryan as most guys of his stature come in with the attitude that they should be pushed to the top, whether they have talent or not. He, on the other hand, doesn’t understand why the company is pushing him.

– The Aug. 1 Raw live event in Fort Myers, Florida drew 4,248, with a $147,850 gate.

    I like Mason Ryan, the kid has a good look to him, just like Rob Terry. As a matter of Fact, Rob Terry? Mason Ryan? Why are these companies pushing Welsh wrestlers?

    Anyway, a humble attitude is a good thing and if Mason is willing to dedicate himself I have no problem cheering him on. Big guys get a lot of unneccessary heat from the IWC sometimes.

    Well, no shite that WWE is high on Del Rio. He has been promoted only about 50 TIMES during this past MONTH alone! What gave us THAT CLUE!?!?
