Maryse Ouellet Critical Of WWE’s Diva Handling, Lilian Garcia, WWE Reference To The Undertaker’s Hair, WWE Returning To Mexico, Billy Gunn, More

– Former WWE talent Maryse Ouellet was critical of WWE creative’s handling of the Divas division during a recent interview with Running The Ropes. When asked how the division has changed since her debut with the company five years ago, she responded, “You know it’s changed from what it was in 2007 when it had twelve minute pay-per-view matches now to thirty second (matches). It’s hard to make a crowd relate to you when you can’t talk on the microphone, you have only a minute in the ring and you have ten divas in the ring at the same time so you can’t build a character and you can’t make people relate. It’s impossible to get over.”

She continues, “I just wish the girls were given more time to work because there is potential, but there’s no time. They need to give them something so they (WWE) can receive something and if they don’t, they will never get anything.”

The two-time Divas Champion also discusses her release from WWE, House of Maryse, an online report that she was “too sexy” for PG WWE, her role on NXT, her famous hand gesture and more. The audio interview is available here (beginning at the 1:19:00 mark.

— SmackDown ring announcer Lilian Garcia had a wardrobe mishap at Tuesday’s SmackDown taping in Columbus, Ohio as the strap of her shoe broke while she made her ring entrance. Regarding this, she wrote on Twitter, “Hilarious moment and a first! My shoe strap broke during my entrance to @WWE SD tonight so I ran down barefoot! Fixed shoe with tape!!”

— WWE has announced that they will be holding SmackDown live events in Mexico this May. Dates and locations are as follows: May 24 at Multipurpose Centre in Hermosillo; May 25 at Monumental Bullring in Aguascalientes; May 26 at Vicente Fernandez Gomez Arena in Guadalajara.

— Former WWE star Billy Gunn wrote on Twitter regarding his one year of sobriety, “Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the fans and specialy my wife for hanging in there for my one year sobriety.”

— The March 2012 issue of WWE Magazine appears to feature an inside reference concerning The Undertaker’s hair (which he no longer has because he is shaved bald). While explaining his near year long hiatus from WWE in their WrestleMania XXVIII feature, they wrote, “Despite (beating Triple H) by submission with the Hell’s Gate and extending his epic streak, The Deadman was unable to leave the arena on his own. And no one has seen hide nor hair of him for nearly an entire year.”

The Undertaker has not removed the hood concealing his bald head during his appearances on Raw because WWE creative is saving the moment for his Hell in a Cell encounter with Triple H at WrestleMania XXVIII.

Former WWE Diva Torrie Wilson told WWE’s website that she and MLB slugger boyfriend Alex Rodriguez will be attending WrestleMania 28 in Miami this year.

– WWE recently signed college wrestler Derek Foore, who we have wrote about in the past and who resembles a young Kurt Angle. Foore has a good athletic physique and was scouted by Gerald Brisco at last year’s NAIA Championships. Foore is moving from Ohio to Florida this coming week to begin work at WWE developmental.
