– Former TNA and WWE wrestler Monty Brown has said that he’s in talks about returning to WWE. Monty says he had to take some time away from WWE on his own terms but that he kept a good rapport with the company and is able to come back at any time. Brown is currently launching his own clothing line called Scripture Clothing.
– Shawn Michaels has been walking about more gingerly lately than in the past as his knees are said to be in really bad shape. It’s being speculated that Shawn may need even more of a schedule break if not some time away from the ring sooner than later.
– Regarding the WWE Draft in a few weeks, the feeling right now is that given the situation with MyNetworkTV’s future, that the RAW and SmackDown brands are no longer going to be treated with the idea of separate brands, but almost equal. WWE moved Jim Ross, Jeff Hardy and Triple H last year in the Draft with hopes of beefing up SmackDown. That decision wasn’t enough to overcome the weak station line-up MNTV has and ratings for SmackDown are down. Now the feeling is that RAW has maximum exposure and they want as many of the top stars there but still want to keep SmackDown strong so the SmackDown live events can still do well.
