Backstage News On Kassius Ohno's Release, Sheamus Serious About Undertaker, Malenko

- Regarding Kassius Ohno's WWE departure, word is that in confidence, he told some of his co-workers that he couldn't understand why he wasn't being pushed at the level of guys he thought he was better than. Those co-workers then told WWE management that he had said and that sealed his fate with the company, combined with his age and the fact they had no immediate plans or ideas for him on the main roster.

- We noted last week that Sheamus said in an interview his dream WrestleMania opponent would be The Undertaker. Apparently Sheamus is trying to push the idea of that match internally so he's very serious about it.

- WWE agent Dean Malenko, who has had heart issues in the past, was sent home early from WWE's recent European tour due to chest pains. He was first taken to the hospital and after being examined, was sent home.
