Backstage Note on Fandango, Identity of RAW Security Guards, JBL

Posted by Matt Boone November 27, 2012 1 Comment

– SmackDown announcer JBL noted on his Facebook that he’s just 7 weeks away from heading to South America to climb Mt. Aconcagua, nicknamed Mt. Death, as part of his Seven Summits campaign. JBL noted that the next 7 weeks will be “pure self induced hell” as he continues to train. He has to drop his weight to below 230lbs. before January 11th, a size he says he hasn’t been at since college.

– The guys who appeared as security in the Ryback segment during last night’s RAW were Luke Hawx, Byron Wilcott, Matt Lancie, Blake Wilder and Haniel T. They are all a part of WildKat Sports & Entertainment out of New Orleans.

Apparently Hawx and others will also be working tonight’s SmackDown tapings in Bossier City. Hawx commented on Twitter after last night’s RAW about a talk with Paul Heyman:

“Had a great fuckin talk with @HeymanHustle tonight! He threw gasoline on a fire!!!”

– WWE officials have high hopes for Johnny Curtis and the Fandango gimmick.
