Steve Carell/Great Khali, WWE Releases, Unforgiven Trailer, More
By Ryan Clark | August 15, 2008
Contrary to reports, WWE has not signed Southeastern indy wrestler Phil Shatter to a developmental contract. Shatter is billed at 6-3 and 275 pounds.
Steve Carell recently did an interview talking about working with The Great Khali for the movie Get Smart. Carrell said there was a fight scene between him and Khali that almost went terribly wrong. Carell said, "My life flashed before my eyes because I wasn't ready to duck. And if I didn't duck I would have had my head removed from my body. I would be a torso running around!"
The release of referee Nick Patrick appears to be a numbers game. Most of the younger referees work the ring crew. Patrick's release doesn't appear to be a backlash to the failure of his father's Deep South Wrestling. His father, The Assassin, ran the former WWE developmental territory.
