— Trevor Murdoch told Pitch.com that he was returning to WWE after doing his final indy show for MPW this Friday. I’ve been doing this since I was 18 years old. So I’m at an age where when I went to WWE the first time, I was 25 years old, and I’m really excited that I’m still at a young enough age that I’m going to be able to go back and do some good things on TV. My [5-year-old] son is now old enough to see me and understand that daddy is on TV, and he loves pro wrestling. So I’m fired up to be able to get back to working on TV again for sure., he said. We’ll have a more update on this later today (Thursday).
