-WWE Hall Of Famer Gerald Brisco noted in a recent interview that WWE is currently scouting Olympic wrestling hopefuls Sunny Dhinsa and Tyrell Fortune. In the case of Dhinsa, he is targeting the 2016 Olympics and has discussed potentially signing with WWE after that. However, Dhinsa has already visited Florida for a tryout of sorts.
-Apparently the reason Jack Swagger wasn’t on any of last week’s WWE television was because they were in Canada, and Swagger was unable to enter the country due to his recent marijuana conviction. WWE explained the absence by claiming Swagger was a “real American” and refused to come to Canada.
-As reported yesterday, WWE has re-hired Shawn “Gavin” Spears to a developmental deal. While Spears had been with the company for years, he apparently received his latest deal due to an impressive showing during his recent WWE tryout.
