WWE Signs Umaga’s Cousin, Plans for Nexus to Stay on RAW, More

– Cody Rhodes, Alicia Fox and Terry Funk all celebrated birthdays yesterday. Funk is 66, Cody is 25 and Alicia is now 24.

– WWE has signed Joe Anoa’i to a developmental deal. Joe is the son of Sika, cousin of Rikishi and Umaga, and the younger brother of Rosey. Joe is 6 foot 3 and 280 pounds. Anoa’i played as defensive tackle for Georgia Tech in 2006 but wasn’t drafted by an NFL team. He went to the Minnesota Vikings as a free agent and sat on the practice squad in 2007 before being cut. Joe played football in Canada for the Edmonton Eskimos and is now getting into pro wrestling.

– The decision has made that The Nexus stable will remain on the RAW roster and won’t be doing any run-ins on SmackDown. Most expect that this may change eventually.
