- As PWMania.com previously reported, WWE has signed former Oregon State heavyweight Clayton Jack to a three-year developmental deal. Clayton will begin training at NXT on January 24th. He told OUBeavers.com that he hopes to work as a heel:
“I wouldn’t mind playing the heel, which is the bad guy. When you first start out you are always kind of the heel and then you work your way into being a face, which is a good guy. As much as I want to say it’s based on my personality, it’s also based on how well I can act.”
– Curt Hawkins returned to action at Thursday night’s WWE SmackDown live event in Anchorage, Alaska. He lost to Justin Gabriel.
– Kevin Nash has pulled out of this weekend’s Hart Legacy Wrestling debut event in Canada. Nash noted that his wife has come down with the flu and he’s putting family first after 23 years in the business.
