– It should be noted that the controversial former baseball player Jose Canseco’s representatives contacted WWE at one point about using him in some kind of celebrity role. WWE did discuss the possibility but turned the idea down.
– One of the reasons WWE paired Tony Atlas with Mark Henry is to be a good influence on him. Before Atlas arrived, Henry often traveled alone and was never a healthy eater. WWE is concerned because when Henry gets heavier than he should be, he becomes immobile. Atlas keeps in good shape for his age and trains and eats healthy. The feeling is that as a travel partner, Atlas will keep Henry’s weight and conditioning under control.
