WWE Scouting Olympic Hopefuls, Why Swagger Missed WWE Tapings, Shawn Spears Update

– Gerald Brisco noted in a recent interview that WWE has been recruiting Olympic wrestling hopefuls Sunny Dhinsa and Tyrell Fortune. Dhinsa is apparently targeting the 2016 Olympics and has talked about going to WWE after that but has already been brought to Florida for a tryout.

– Jack Swagger wasn’t on any of last week’s WWE TV shows because they were in Canada and he couldn’t enter the country because of his recent marijuana conviction. WWE covered it up on TV by saying Swagger was a real American and refused to come to Canada.

– As noted, WWE recently re-hired Shawn Spears to a new developmental contract. Although Spears was with the company for years, he got his new deal based on a good showing at a recent WWE tryout.

    Yes I love Shawn spears and if anyone watched him in ovw his tag team with Cody Rhodes was awesome and there break up and matches after for the ovw tv title were excellent. I would have much rather seen those to brought up together as a tag team and had them win the titles then see Cody and Bob Holly as champs for the 8 or 9 months they held them.
