According to a backstage source, Sean "Val Venis" Morley will not be returning to WWE as an on-air talent. He was on hand for the company's "Old School" episode of RAW this past Monday and was trained to be a producer. It was said to be more of tryout to see if he's adequate enough to be a producer now.

The former WWE Intercontinental Champion was telling promoters he was going on WWE's recent tour of Europe. It is unclear whether Venis attended the television tapings, but he worked a show for NWS over the weekend and is once again accepting independent bookings.
