Bobby Lashley has been training for MMA as of late. He’s been training in both Colorado Springs and San Jose. It is believed that he’ll go public with his plans in early May when his 90-day no-compete clause with WWE expires. Lashley is also free to go to TNA when the clause expires.
Ted DiBiase, Jr. is expected to be called up to the SmackDown roster in the near future.
WWE’s official site has removed the graphic promoting next week’s King of the Ring on Raw, which led to speculation of Chris Jericho, Umaga, Shawn Michaels, CM Punk, Batista, Big Show, Triple H, and MVP being participants in the tournament. In the old graphic’s place is a picture of the King of the Ring throne briefly shown on Raw last night. The preview for next week’s Raw still mentions CM Punk, Finlay and Mr. Kennedy, so it looks like the tournament will feature those three wrestlers at the very least.
WWE’s official website wants to know if Irwin R. Schyster would approve of some of the tax ememptions a few of the WWE Superstars & Divas would probably want to declare. Jillian, Undertaker, Deuce & Domino, Festus, Jesse, Ranjin Singh, Hornswoggle, JBL, Chavo Guerrero, Colin Delaney and Snitsky are mentioned in the feature.
