- We noted earlier that Justin Gabriel quit WWE because he was tired of how he was being used and is looking forward to building his name up on the indies. Gabriel had been looking at other non-wrestling opportunities for some time and apparently one of those gigs may have come through. Gabriel did some modeling and acting before signing with WWE.
- WWE had 20 men and 20 women at their Performance Center tryouts last week. Indie star Biff Busick was the biggest name at the camp but Tessa Blanchard, daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Tully Blanchard, was also there.
