Details On Time Constraints At SummerSlam, Wrestlers Skip WWE Tryouts, Butch Reed
– We noted before that matches at SummerSlam had to be cut short due to production issues and time constraints. The WWE Title match actually had several minutes cut from it because some of the undercard went longer than planned.
A big part of the timing problems had to do with the Kevin Rudolph performance in the middle of the pay-per-view. Speaking of that performance, WWE reportedly had fans dancing that were planted in the crowd.
– Potential TNA talents Scorpio Sky and Shaun Ricker were both scheduled to be at the invitation-only WWE tryout camp in Southern California this past week but apparently were not there.
– At last word, former WCW and WWE star Butch Reed was in the Jefferson County, Missouri Detention Center due to a probation violation.
