— Former WWE talent Travis Tomko turns 36 years on Friday. A jury trial for his arrest last October in St. Augustine, Florida on a felony robbery charge is scheduled for May.
– John Cena reveals why he is so passionate about being a part of WWE in this “Once in a Lifetime: The Rock vs. John Cena” preview video.
During Tuesday’s SmackDown taping at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, ring announcer Lilian Garcia erroneously introduced Zack Ryder as “Long Island Iced Z, Jack Swagger” for his match against Jack Swagger. On Friday’s broadcast, which has already aired overseas, the mistake is edited out in place of a voice-over of Garcia correctly introducing Ryder.
It is the third time in recent weeks where WWE’s production team has had to cover for Garcia bungling a ring introduction on SmackDown. At the February 14 show, she botched her introduction of Jey and Jimmy Uso for their tag team match against Epico and Primo. WWE had Garcia record a voice-over following the taping. During the following week’s live show, she erroneously introduced Raw Interim General Manager and WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis as “General Manager of Monday Night Raw and Interim (pause) Talent Relations Mr. John Laurinaitis.” This caused Michael Cole to berate Garcia on-air over her miscue as he questioned her employment with WWE. The announcing error, as well as Cole’s subsequent rant, was cut out of the episode’s replay.
Following the conclusion of Tuesday’s taping, John Cena denounced Garcia’s ring announcing ability in front of the live audience by saying “she looks absolutely beautiful but doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing.” He then had Tony Chimel properly introduce Ryder since he’s a professional and “knows what he’s doing.”
On his Twitter account, Evan Bourne announced that he suffered some sort of “accident”, causing him to break his foot in four places and fracture it in five more places.
There’s absolutely no word on how much time the injury will cause him to miss, but he was already on the WWE sidelines, just coming off of his second Wellness Policy violation a week ago. The company had no plans to bring him back until after WrestleMania, but obviously, his return will now be pushed back.
Stay tuned for further updates on the situation, including how long the injury will keep him out for, as it comes in.
