— Regarding Matt Hardy’s present status with World Wrestling Entertainment, both sides remain at a strong stalemate.

Company officials want Hardy to address his issues, but he doesn’t want to. Furthermore, they are unwilling to release him at this time because they don’t want him joining rival promotion TNA Wrestling.

One company source indicated that the touring schedule has been hectic as of late and when things settle down following Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, Hardy’s situation will likely be addressed.

— WWE has signed “The Bashing Bulgarian” Miroslav to a developmental contract. Miroslav is from Bulgaria and was trained by Gangrel and Rikishi, among others, at the Knokx Pro Wrestling Academy in Burbank, California.

Miroslav would be WWE’s second acquistion from Knokx Pro, following Alberto Del Rio’s personal ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez. He too is a trained professional wrestler.
