Word is that she was also spotted at the SD! tapings on Tuesday night. She was with her real-life boyfriend and indy wrestler John Yurnet. Also backstage with them was indy wrestler Samuray Del Sol and former Ring of Honor Tag Team Champion Jimmy Jacobs.

-- Kevin Nash's WWE Legends deal is apparently different than everyone else. The way it usually works with Legends Deals is you make a percentage of the revenue your name and likeness generate. In addition to that, they also pay you a small amount per year. According to a source, Nash is making much more than others and is doing very little work for the money he's being paid. It should also be noted that Nash is said to be frustrated because he thought the reaction he got at the Royal Rumble PPV would eventually lead to a bigger storyline on TV.
