As Nick noted here on WrestleZone.com earlier this afternoon, former TNA wrestler Ron Killings should be debuting on television next month. At last word, the creative team will let him use his “The Truth” nickname. It should be noted that he’s been coming out to his old TNA theme music — which he owns. He’s been working dark matches & house show events since late March.
The WWE tour of New Zealand and Australia was very successful as they drew over 68,000 fans over 7-days. WWE officials considered this one of the most successful tours of that part of the world in the company’s history.
Rey Mysterio is currently negotiating with WWE regarding a new contract. His contract was set to expire soon, but WWE apparently has a clause that allows time missed due to an injury to be added to an existing contract. Several sources are saying that 10 months have been added to Mysterio’s existing WWE contract — the amount of time missed during his recovery from knee surgery and recent torn biceps injury. The company usually re-negotiates contracts with talent approximately a year before they are set to expire. Rey is seeking a raise from the company because he feels he’s underpaid compared to some of his counterparts in WWE. The next few months will be critical for Rey because he must prove that he can stay healthy.
