? WinnipegFreePress.com is reporting that World Wrestling Entertainment has signed Canadian wrestler “Prime Cut” Jon Cutler to a three-year developmental deal. He will begin training at Florida Championship Wrestling in a few weeks. The Winnipeg native hopes to follow in the footsteps of fellow Winnipeggers Chris Jericho and Rowdy Roddy Piper. He told the newspaper, “I keep thinking that guys like Jericho and Piper set the bar pretty high, so I kind of feel a little bit of pressure that even though I’m getting my shot, I don’t want to let people down. Those aren’t easy names to follow.”
? As reported earlier, WWE recently held a talent evaluation at Florida Championship Wrestling headquarters with Johnny Ace guaranteeing that at least one person who attended would be signed to a contract. Although, it was said that WWE would sign one person with zero prior wrestling experience. After a five day seminar/tryout, WWE signed one person in the form of a model by the name of Matt Walsh. As it turns out, he has previous wrestling experience. One source in attendance at the seminar, who was none too happy, said Walsh lied to company officials and even pretended like he didn’t know how to wrestle at all during the clinic. It was discovered that Walsh had a page on MySpace, which included photos of him wrestling. The photos have since been deleted by Walsh. Several people at the clinic were said to be upset that they lost their chance to a guy with prior wrestling experience and a better look.
