– In this week’s edition of Santino’s Casa on WWE.com, Santino Marella’s main squeeze “The Glamazon” Beth Phoenix fills in for him. She calls out a few blondes in her segment, Beth’s Blonde Beatdown. You can view the segment at WWE.com
The reason for Marella’s absence this week is because he was apparently not brought to Monday’s Raw/ECW taping in Jacksonville. Marella was nowhere to be seen on either program. He also didn’t appear at house show events over the weekend. As reported earlier, one way WWE is looking to cut costs is by not flying in every single active talent on the roster to the weekly tapings unless they actually have plans to use them. In the past, WWE would fly in everyone on the roster whether they had plans to use them or not. Last week, Cryme Tyme weren’t brought to the weekly Raw taping for the first time since their return to the company.
