- WWE developmental talent DT Porter, who is currently out of action with a knee injury, posted the following message on his Facebook account:
“Guys, I don’t know how much longer I can handle this. Every day is a constant struggle to keep my sanity. I love wrestling and it’s all I ever wanted to do. Already going crazy since I’ve been for like ten months now, but it gets worse. Every day a trainer goes out of his way to rib or disrespect me in front of the boys because I’ve been out so long. I can’t clear myself. I wanna wrestle more than anything, but I don’t even know who I am anymore. It’s so f***ing hard. I just feel it just building inside of me and I don’t know how much longer I can contain it. I have daydreams of just f***ing everyone up on some real shit. I’m not a kid. I’m a f***ing man. But what do you do when the people in charge of helping you get to the main roster are the ones making your life the hardest. I’ve been drinking almost every day. It’s to the point to where I keep Vodka and Gin in my trunk. Help me!”
– John Laurinaitis began training at a WWE warehouse where rings are kept in Connecticut this week. For those wondering, Laurinaitis will indeed wrestle John Cena at WWE’s Over the Limit pay-per-view and this isn’t some angle where Laurinaitis will be replaced by a WWE Superstar.
– According to The Wrestling Observer, the attendance numbers that came out last week for the Extreme Reunion event in Philadelphia were inflated a bit. The actual attendance was 1,700 and the gate was less than $75,000. This is still considered to be a successful independent show.
