– As noted, WWE released NXT announcer Tony Dawson this past week. Word is that Dawson was a nice guy but didn’t have any passion for wrestling. He and Tom Phillips were hired around the same time and the feeling was Phillips had passed him by.
– WWE has shown interest in Mexican star Volador Jr. The CMLL promotion is apparently aware of their interest.
– It’s being reported in Japan that Tensai was making $100,000 per year with New Japan Pro Wrestling and to lure him away, WWE offered $400,000. It’s also being reported that WWE is trying to sign NJPW stars Karl Anderson and Prince Devitt.
