SuperLuchas.net out of Mexico reports that Alex Shelley was never actually contacted directly by WWE officials. A friend of Shelley’s who currently wrestles for WWE was the one who let Shelley know that WWE was interested in bringing him in.
Shelley reportedly wants to take a few weeks off to relax and then officially begin negotiating with WWE. SuperLucha’s source reports that Shelley is concerned about being sent to Florida Championship Wrestling and wants to go straight to WWE’s main roster.
Jim Ross is headed back to Tampa this week to work the final set of FCW TV tapings from the FCW Arena in Tampa, Florida. As noted before, Dean Ambrose vs. William Regal is booked for the tapings. JR wrote:
“Gonna be a great week in Tampa this week. Gonna do a little commentary Thurs nite at FCW. Love working w/ WWE Development talents.”
Mick Foley wrote the following about being involved with the new WWE ’13 video game:
“Fired up to be part of @WWE 13. I re-create some of my best known moments from the Attitude era. Cool stuff to be part of.”
Foley also revealed the first book signing for his new children’s book with WWE that comes out later this year. Foley will be signing copies of “A Most Miz-erable Christmas” on December 1st in Jefferson, New Hampshire at Santa’s Village.
– We noted before that FCW star Richie Steamboat worked last night’s SmackDown event in Augusta, Georgia, losing to Damien Sandow. Steamboat was originally scheduled to face Drew McIntyre.
– NFL player Adam Carriker, who hosts a wrestling radio show at 4thandPain.com, was asked if he thinks he could beat WWE Superstar Mark Henry in an arm wrestling contest. Carriker replied:
“Me. I mean, Mark Henry has claimed to be the World’s Strongest Man for like two decades now. Is he really the World’s Strongest Man still or is that just some title he won’t relinquish. At some point I’ve got to think you’re not the World’s Strongest Man anymore. I’ve got to think at some point age has caught up with him. He’s been in the business a while… I’m still a young stud. In all honesty, the man is ridiculously strong. But I think I’ve got the fulcrum points, I’ve got the leverage part. I think I can take him.”
