– The folks at WrestleReunion wrote the following regarding former WWE Diva Maryse’s appearance at the convention this weekend:
“We had to remove the auction with Maryse due to a misunderstanding with her management. It had NOTHING TO DO with the fake bids that occured in the last 24 hours. Our contract with Maryse, dating back several months, indicated she would be “introduced” at the live event. We understood that to mean we would introduce her on the mic and she would walk to ringside for the introduction. There was no further discussion of the matter until Friday afternoon when we received an email from her agent. They understand our agreement as her appearing in the audience and we can introduce her from the audience position. We tried to work this out over the course of the weekend, but they were unwilling to concede and allow her to appear ringside. Because of this misunderstanding, this auction cannot occur as we advertised and therefore we have pulled it entirely. We apologize to all of Maryse’s fans that were feverishly bidding on this auction. Maryse will still do all her signings/autographs/pictures as scheduled on Saturday, but we have released her from any obligation of attending the live event on Saturday night.”
– Last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings in Tucson, Arizona ran much longer than usual so some of the segments were cut down in length.
– Regarding surprise entrants for this year’s Royal Rumble, WWE has been polling employees at their Headquarters in Stamford asking who they would like to see in the match.
