Kendrick Getting A Bodyguard?, Terri Runnels, Kelly Kelly Gets RAW, More

SmackDown wrestler Brian Kendrick may be getting a bodyguard. Kendrick worked a dark match with Funaki prior to last night's SmackDown/ECW taping and brought out a bodyguard. His name is Rycklon Stephens and he is currently under a developmental contract working for Florida Championship Wrestling. They were testing it last night. Stephens may be the most muscular guy in the entire company as he is billed at 305 pounds. And what's in store for Paul London you ask? Good luck!

On Monday's Raw it was announced in a backstage segment featuring Kelly Kelly, Mickie James, and John Cena, that Kelly was now a part of the Raw roster. WWE.com has moved her profile from the ECW section to the Raw section, which you can see at WWE.com. Kelly was likely moved due to the shortage of babyface women's wrestlers on the Raw brand as Mickie James was the only active one (Melina – out for five months due to heel injury, Candice Michelle – out until at least SummerSlam due to clavicle injury, Ashley Massaro – likely on her way out of the company and/or dealing with personal problems).

Former WWE Diva Terri "Marlena" Runnels recently expressed an interest in returning to either WWE or TNA in an interview with the Baltimore Sun. "I would love to do something again, but my only thing is that I don't want to wrestle," she said. "It would have to be in a hosting/managing/valet/interview capacity. I have no problems with a bump. When I would get to TV and Vince [McMahon] would say, 'OK, Big Show is going to goozle you and throw you and you're going to land on someone in the second row,' I'd be like, 'Awesome.' But if he would tell me, 'Hey Terri, you've got a bikini paddle on the pole match with another girl,' nothing against the other girls, because I so respect them and what they've trained to do, but I just cannot stand having an actual wrestling match. It's just not for me. I love the big bump. I was the first female to be slammed through a table by The Dudleys ? loved that, was stoked. Granted, it didn't feel well the day after or the day after that or the day after that, but I was still very excited to do that bump."

WWE.com has posted the synopsis for WWE 24/7 programming during the month of August. August will be the annual "Flight 24/7: Destination Worldwide" theme featuring wrestlers & matches from around the globe.
