WWE Copies Indy Worker's Promo?, New FCW Champion, Maria

-- Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer very much believes the WWE creative team patterned Vickie Guerrero's promo this past Monday on Raw after a promo indy worker Trina Michaels cut at a recent AWS show that ended up on YouTube. Starting at the 1:45 mark, you can see video of the promo in question at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loTbNvsM7CE , not to mention Vickie's promo on Hulu.com to see how similar they both are. Trina herself commented on the situation on her MySpace account (myspace.com/katrina113), writing: "If they (WWE) did get the idea from my promo I take that as an honor. I always thought Vickie was awesome in her role. Now time for someone to fill that spot. Hmmmmm."

-- Tyler Reks captured the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship at last night's Florida Championship Wrestling television taping, defeating Drew McIntyre. Following the match, former FCW Champion Joe Hennig, who had been out with an injury, came out to congratulate Reks on his victory. Last night's show saw another return in Johnny Curtis, who had been out for a weeks as a result of a concussion. He won in his return match. In other news coming out of the show, Abraham Washington was announced as the new General Manager of Florida Championship Wrestling. Fletcher Chase had been competing with Washington for the role, but "sold out" to join his camp. Washington named him assistant General Manager. If you don't know who Tyler Reks is, you can learn more about him through his MySpace page (www.myspace.com/gabetuft).
