– For what it’s worth, Averno is still wrestling with EMLL in Mexico. It’s said that he’s even hotter now than he was before losing his mask last month. There’s no update on when he may start working for WWE, if he will at all.
– Media reports from South Africa note that Big Show was another WWE Superstar who had items stolen from his luggage earlier this week. We also know that Christian and Sin Cara had some of their belongings stolen. It was reported that about half of the SmackDown crew were victims of the theft.
– The Medina Gazette from Ohio reports that WWE signed NAIA national wrestling champion Derek Foore to a developmental deal on Friday. Foore was invited to a FCW tryout months ago after WWE’s Jerry Brisco scouted him at a wrestling competition. Foore is planning a move to Florida where he can begin training at FCW.
The two-time national finalist and three-time high school state wrestling runner-up had the following to say about the signing:
“Right when I got the call I was like, ‘Yes, I’m one step closer. I’m willing to do whatever it takes. When I’m crazy enough, big enough and my career is sound and well-molded, that’s when they’ll say ‘Ok, you’re ready, man.’ I’m just living in the moment. I’m 22 years old and I have this opportunity. I will take it and seize it.”
