-- As noted earlier here on the website, TNA Wrestling has signed independent wrestler Becky Bayless to a contract. Bayless took part in a tryout last week under the name 'Cookie', seconding Rob Eckos, who was also recently signed. Their act is said to be patterned after Jersey Shore stars Snooki and The Situation. Bayless has worked for a number of independent promotions in recent years including Ring of Honor, Full Impact Pro and Shimmer Women Athletes. Currently, she is the co-host of Wrestlicious: Take Down alongside WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart.

-- In my title earlier, I meant to say WWE signed one new talent and released another. So just to clear things up, World Wrestling Entertainment has released developmental wrestler George Murdoch (a/k/a G-Rilla, Brodus Clay). Murdoch was previously released by the organization in February 2008. He was re-signed to a developmental contract in January. WWE has signed Bradley Jay.
