» In light of news of Domino appearing at a recent Florida Championship Wrestling television taping, it has been confirmed that WWE has re-signed the former tag team champion. Though he came out to his former Deuce 'n Domino entrance music, he performed under his real name of Cliff Compton not to mention it was openly acknowledged that he was Domino as opposed to a newcomer. Compton lost to Justin Gabriel by disqualification after Wade Barrett attacked the FCW Champion. Michael Tarver then hit the ring to attack Barrett.
