As noted earlier here on the website, Mickie James signed an exclusive recording contract with popular Nashville producer Kent Wells this week and is already in the studio working on her debut country album which is scheduled for a Spring 2010 release. Wells has worked with other names in country music such as Neal McCoy, Michael Peterson and Dolly Parton. Mickie signed with Skyline Management Group last month.

Low Ki (a.k.a. "Kaval") is expected to debut soon on SmackDown and begin a feud with Rey Mysterio. He is expected to debut under a mask and programmed as someone from Mysterio's past in Mexico. Officials first discussed the idea early last year, but plans were thwarted when the former TNA X Division champion suffered a serious leg injury.

As reported earlier, WWE has signed Playboy's 2008 "Model of the Year" Jillian Beyor to a contract. She is set to debut soon in the company's farm league, Florida Championship Wrestling. In a trivia note, Beyor has appeared on WWE programming before as she appeared as an extra in a backstage segment with Kevin Federline on the January 1, 2007 edition of Monday Night RAW. She could be seen celebrating with Federline following his victory over John Cena that evening.
