– As you may have noticed, Heath Slater has been away from WWE TV and live events for several weeks now while Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal keep the 3MB gimmick going. Word now is that Slater has been given time off to deal with some personal issues and there’s no word on when he will be back.
– Dolph Ziggler recently spoke to WashingtonTimes.com and talked about getting help from Arn Anderson backstage:
“Absolutely Arn. He’s taken a liking to me because of my work ethic. I’m the guy who doesn’t necessarily win all the time, always out there giving a great match, [and] making someone else look better. He crushed for so many years like that, so I feel like he relates to me sometimes. He pulls me aside and gives me a lot of pointers. [WWE Hall of Famer] Pat Paterson is another one. Guys who are so good and so smart with the business, loving the business, and [when] they see someone else loving it, they try to pass on their wisdom.”
– CBS in New York has an article up about a disabled eight-year old WWE fan. His father couldn’t get wheelchair-accessible seats for WWE’s December 28th live event in Newark, NJ due to problems with Ticketmaster. The kid ended up getting WWE’s VIP Experience tickets for the event after WWE, the Prudential Center and the Division of Civil Rights stepped in and fixed the situation.
