WWE held their first developmental tryout camp in Florida last week over the course of five days with about 40 potential talents forking over $1000 in hopes of landing a contract from the company. The plan was for WWE to inform talent yesterday if they had been selected for a developmental deal. Nothing concrete has come out yet. John Cena, Melina, Mr. Kennedy & others took part in the camp, giving feedback to Steve Keirn & John Laurinaitis. And as reported earlier, WWE held a tryout at Ohio Valley Wrestling headquarters last month. Only one wrestler was offered a contract (Gavin Garrison).
Elijah Burke, who hasn’t been seen on television since late May, posted the following note on his official website (www.TheElijahExpress.com}: “But fear not! Just know that, “MY COMEBACK SHALL BE GREATER THAN MY SETBACK!” ~ YOUR Pope has Spoken!” Burke also posted blogs on TMZ, O.J. Simpson, Kimbo Slice getting knocked out, and more.
