Retired NFL Star Downplays Recent WWE Tryout, Damien Sandow, Ziggler Reminder

- As noted earlier, Damien Sandow recently met a 16 year old wrestling fan in Louisville, Kentucky who has Neurofibromitosis, a rare disorder that affects the nervous system and causes lesions on the body. WHAS 11 News in Kentucky did a story about the meeting, which you can check out above.

- As noted earlier, three-time Pro Bowl and All-Pro selection Shawne Merriman participated in a WWE tryout last month at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. The Wrestling Observer recently reported that WWE would not be offering Merriman a contract, as he gassed pretty quickly and was not impressive in the ring. Merriman downplayed the tryout during a recent interview with The Baltimore Sun.

"It wasn't a training session," Merriman said of the tryout. "I kind of just got in the ring and was messing around a little bit. I wanted to see their new facilities in Orlando, and it was something I dreamed about doing as a kid. So, when I actually got a chance to see the guys train, I just jumped in the ring and kind of had some fun. That was about it on that."

- A quick reminder that Dolph Ziggler will be appearing at pop-culture superstore Adventureland in Voorhees, NJ this Saturday from 11 a.m. 1 p.m. Ziggler will be meeting fans, signing autographs and taking pictures at the event. You can get more information on their Facebook page, and you can purchase tickets by calling (856) 772-5900.
