– Matt Striker’s “Vote Republican” line on ECW last week didn’t surprise those who know him as he is said to be a hardcore Republican. Striker also mentioned Sarah Palin on ECW this week.
– Jason Powell reports that there is frustration in WWE’s developmental territory down in Tampa over the number of talents compared to the number of trainers. The staff is reportedly finding it difficult to find time for everyone and Dusty Rhodes is said to be having a hard time coming up with characters for everyone.
The feeling among most is that they need to hire more staff members or reduce the number of wrestlers on the FCW roster. As posted last week, former WCW and WWE Star Norman Smiley has been brought in as a trainer.
