– WWE developmental wrestler Kevin Hackman was removed last week from the Florida Championship Wrestling’s website roster page, which would indicate that he has parted ways with World Wrestling Entertainment. Hackman, who’s real name is Andrew Leavine, is a former Florida International University offensive lineman WWE signed last summer to a developmental contract.
— At tonight’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, Booker T introduced Trish Stratus as a trainer for WWE’s Tough Enough. Wearing heels, she came to the aid of the rehired Kelly Kelly, fending off Michelle McCool and Layla. The multi-time champion took to Twitter to comment on her return.
“Wow good to be back in front of a live ppv crowd & the @wweuniverse! What did u think of my new catchphase?” She later added, “Note to self: always pack wrestling boots when u go to a WWE event-cause u just never know.”
The term “Trish Stratus” continued to trend worldwide on Twitter following the pay-per-view event.
