Update on DDP & Tonight’s RAW, ROH Signs Former WWE Team and More

– 347,000 homes (10.1% of total viewers) watched the May 30th RAW on time delay or DVR. This is down a bit from previous weeks that were at record levels. The May 30th Tough Enough had 143,000 homes watch it delayed, or 7.6% of the total viewers.

– Ring of Honor announced today that they have signed ROH World Tag Team Champions and former WWE star Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin to a contract.

– As noted before, Diamond Dallas Page is backstage at tonight’s RAW in Las Vegas. DDP added on Twitter that he’s there to promote the WCW Nitro DVD so presumably he will be appearing on TV tonight.

    ROH is a pretty small company so doesnt have the money to sign too many people to actual contracts, with a lot of their performers only being paid on a show by show basis. Its better money than the indy circuit though.
    My guess is that Shelton probably wasnt interested in the ROH contract due to his recent return to WWE for some dark matches, as it would have hampered his chances of signing with WWE if they showed interest.
    As WWE doesnt seem to have followed up on this, despite reports from the dirt sheets that it was a lock that he was going back, Shelton has now decided its more secure for him to be under contract with ROH.

    So, what does this mean? Ring of Honor Signed ROH stars Benjamin/Hass to a contract? So they are not under contract but working for ROH, so they signed their own guys??? I don’t get it.
