Sin Cara with RAW Brand Next Week, WWE Talent Release Confirmed, More

– On this day back in 2002, WWF was officially renamed WWE.

– WWE referee Chad Patton turns 35 today while Hall of Famer Bill Watts turns 72.

– Sunday’s WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view from Tampa, Florida drew 10,000 fans.

– It has been confirmed that WWE released Brett DiBiase from his developmental contract.

– WWE’s RAW brand will be headed to Mexico next week for a four-day tour. RAW Superstar Rey Mysterio won’t be appearing but Sin Cara will take his place. WWE pushed Sin Cara’s appearance so hard when they first put tickets on sale before the draft so they probably kept him on the cards because of that. Alberto Del Rio, who wasn’t originally advertised, is now being advertised as one of the top stars for the tour.

    Damn, would’ve liked to see the DiBiase brothers form a team. Oh well, I guess WWE doesn’t really care for its tag team “division”. Only as long as Cena is champion, they’re fine.

    On this day, the Pandas owned Vince once and for all.

    CC, FCW talent is always released first. Now that they’ve done that, look for main roster stuff for future releases, as there will be some I’m sure.

    Just like the 10,000 suckers who went to Extreme Rules..

  • lew

    I bet they released him to put him on tough enough season 2 they did the same with christina crawford

  • CC

    And once again suckered in by a report claiming a WWE talent is released and it turns out to be from FCW.

    I should be ashamed of myself for falling for this, as I should be used to this by now.
