– WWE plans on keeping all three brands apart from this point forward. For the most part, WWE managed to stay true to their new directive as announcer Josh Mathews and United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter were the sole talents to cross brands following Backlash. It was noted on commentary during last week’s episode of SmackDown that MVP’s title defense against Dolph Ziggler on this week’s show was signed prior to the Draft.
– Former WCW star Buff Bagwell is working on an autobiography entitled Gladiators Don’t Cry.
“I’ve got a story that is completely off the chain. It’s crazy, literally, it really is. I shot my father when I was 18 years old for beating my mom up. So, way beyond wrestling my life’s been crazy. He’s still alive and now we’re best friends,” Bagwell said. “I’ve led a pretty crazy life outside of wrestling, but that too. In wrestling it was just wide open.”
In an interview with the Coshocton Tribune, the five-time WCW World Tag Team Champion discusses his numerous tag team partnerships, working indy shows, meeting the fans, and more.
