WWE Nixes Marella & R-Truth Tag Team, Note On WWE Tryouts
– Wrestlers who participated in a recent talent evaluation with WWE were asked to write down the ten most embarrassing and humiliating things they think could possibly happen to them in the company. Steve Lombardi, who oversaw the evaluation with William Regal, then told them that odds are everything they came up with will occur at one point or another if they make it to the big show. They must therefore decide whether working for WWE at the risk of being humiliated is something they want out of life.
— Carlito has canceled his appearance on May 18 in Amersterdam, New York for In Your Face Wrestling. Another former WWE star in Lanny Poffo (a/k/a The Genius) will appear on the show.
— Mando Guerrero, brother of the late Eddie Guerrero, has a role in the Will Ferrell comedy film Casa De Mi Padre.
— WWE creative had at one point planned last week to replace Kofi Kingston as R-Truth’s tag team partner with Santino Marella for comedic purposes. Though R-Truth and Marella partnered at weekend house shows, the idea has already been nixed.
