It’s being reported that Straight Edge Society Joey Mercury will be out of action for approximately 6 months following surgery he received this past weekend for a torn pectoral muscle.
It’s also being reported that WWE made the decision to make the third season of NXT an all-Divas show for several reasons.
The first is that WWE hopes the show will draw better ratings featuring women as opposed to men. Secondly, the company is said to be relying heavily on Isis The Amazon, known as Aloisia on NXT, to help boost NXT ratings with her giant size and unique look. WWE is hoping that she, as well as the other Divas, will spike ratings a bit and help convince Syfy to change its mind and renew the series.
Additionally, it’s being said that WWE is unhappy with several members of its Diva’s division right now and the company might be looking fot replacement players. Specifically, it’s being said that WWE’s recent weekend in Los Angeles was not a good trip for the Divas, as the company was apparently unhappy with the way several of its Divas behaved while on the trip. WWE Diva Serena was of course released, and it’s assumed at the time that Tiffany has been suspended, however it’s being said that they’re not the only Divas that were behaving embarrassingly in public.
