– The Torch Newsletter reports that many WWE workers were upset with Theodore Long being put on storyline “probation” based on the mere possibility that his GM tenure could be in jeopardy in the foreseeable future. The feeling is that Long serves as a great ambassador for WWE and is a true team player–“I think they would be so poorly advised to make a switch in the management role,” a source told the Torch.
– WWE officials made it clear to Ric Flair that while the door remains open for his participation, there is little interest in an in-ring return for “The Nature Boy.”
– Dos Caras Jr. made his WWE developmental debut at last night’s TV tapings, losing to Kris Logan. His new ring name is simply Dos.
– In other news from last night’s FCW tapings, Gabriel was in action and lost to Justin Angel. He is no longer using his dancing gimmick that he and Alicia Fox had on ECW earlier this year.
