Backstage No Way Out News, More On WWE/OVW Separation

Ryan Clark


Part of WWE’s decision to part ways with Ohio Valley Wrestling is that John Laurinaitis ear-marked a good amount of money for Florida Championship Wrestling, and to justify the investment, severed its nine year relationship with the Louisville based promotion.

There is still nothing new to provide regarding Rey Mysterio’s injury this past Wednesday in Chile that is believed to have been a torn bicep. Mysterio is still slated to compete at the No Way Out PPV tomorrow night in Las Vegas against Edge for the World Heavyweight Title. Mysterio could work the injury tomorrow night and then do an angle that will allow him to rehab and be back in time for WrestleMania 24.

It is being reported by The Wrestling Observer that there was a last minute mandatory rehearsal for No Way Out last night at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Many members from the Smackdown/ECW crew, who just arrived in Vegas after a long flight from Chile, were said to be less than thrilled to hear the news about the rehearsal.

Just a reminder that we will be providing live coverage of WWE No Way Out tonight starting at 8:00 p.m. Eastern (7:00 p.m. Central).
