At last night's SmackDown taping in Norfolk, Virginia, WWE developmental wrestler Colt Cabana wrestled in a match. However, he may have been used as a mere enhancement wrestler. He wrestled under the name Scotty Goldman and lost to The Brian Kendrick in a standard match. After the match, Kendrick's bodyguard Ezekiel Jackson attacked Goldman, and that was the end of that. This was Cabana's first match in a WWE ring since signing with the company a few days after WrestleMania 23. Prior to his contract signing, Cabana worked a match or two on Heat as an enhancement worker, losing to "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan in one match. At WrestleMania 22, he made a minor appearance as one of the gangsters who rode a 1930s era car to the ring before John Cena made his lavish entrance. He was also dressed up in a tooth fairy outfit as a fan in the audience on the Halloween 2006 edition of ECW on Sci Fi. He was shown on camera a few times. After inking a deal with WWE, he showed up in Ohio Valley Wrestling before being moved to Florida Championship Wrestling, where's he's currently situated.
WWE developmental wrestler Bradley Jay also wrestled at last night'sSmackDown taping. He too worked as an enhancement worker, losing to Big Show in a quick match. Jay worked under the name Ryan Reddick and lost to Big Show after a knockout punch. Jay appeared as an enhancement worker on a few episodes of Heat last year, and worked some house shows and dark matches last summer. Bradley Jay is one of the few holdovers from OVW as he's been in developmental longer than everyone else besides Eric Perez, and perhaps Nic Nemeth, although he was eventually called up. Jay signed his developmental contract in December 2005 and still has yet to be called up to the main roster.
Could Mick Foley already be through with World Wrestling Entertainment? Mick Foley did not appear at last night's SmackDown taping in Norfolk, Virginia. Tazz took his place alongside Jim Ross for the second week in a row. Also, Matt Striker joined Todd Grisham at the announcers table for last night's edition of ECW on Sci Fi. It was believed that Foley was only going to be held off television for one week to sell his beating from Edge, but by the looks of things, the removal of Foley from the announcers' booth could be permanent. Last week, Foley told the Long Island Press that there was a good chance he would not be renewing his contract with WWE after it expired on September 1, 2008 because the announcing job wasn't working out too well.
