– WWE creative had at one point planned last week to replace Kofi Kingston as R-Truth’s tag team partner with Santino Marella for comedic purposes. Though R-Truth and Marella partnered at weekend house shows, the idea has already been nixed.

— Wrestlers who participated in a recent talent evaluation with WWE were asked to write down the ten most embarrassing and humiliating things they think could possibly happen to them in the company. Steve Lombardi, who oversaw the evaluation with William Regal, then told them that odds are everything they came up with will occur at one point or another if they make it to the big show. They must therefore decide whether working for WWE at the risk of being humiliated is something they want out of life.

— Carlito has canceled his appearance on May 18 in Amersterdam, New York for In Your Face Wrestling. Another former WWE star in Lanny Poffo (a/k/a The Genius) will appear on the show.

— Mando Guerrero, brother of the late Eddie Guerrero, has a role in the Will Ferrell comedy film Casa De Mi Padre.

    So what is Kofi and Truth’s team name? “The Black Guys”? lol

    Seriously….they need to quit just slapping teams together, and focus on having REAL teams that stay together for a long time. This goes for TNA as well.

    I dont think any of you get the point with the question. Simple fact is, there will be angles, and this happens in every promotion through out the world, where a wrestler may have to do something they find humiliating. It may be something as simple as a big guy like Mark Henry jobbing to someone like Hornswoggle, or it may be something a bit more complex like The Billy & Chuck angle.
    Its not saying they should be willing to be bullied or whats gonna happen backstage.
    Hell, The Rock once lost to The Hurricane, which could be seen as humiliating to some. Just as Jack Swagger losing to Santino might be viewed as humiliating.

    What Lombardi & Regal are saying is, if you cant take shit like that because your ego is too fragile, you are in the wrong business.

    Is this new WWE humiliation concept in partner with the Anti-Bullying campaign? The people coming up with these dumbshit ideas should be subjected to the items on the list then pink slipped into their future endeavors.

    Translation: WWE is looking for new humiliating situations to put their talent through for the sake of making a several thousand 10 year olds laugh like drugged up chimps.
