Cassidy Riley issued the following statement on his TNA release: Well as you probably know by now, my time at WWE has come to an end.As of Monday , Feb.4, 2008, I was released from the company. I would like to thank all of my fans who have been VERY supportive. I would like to thank Al Snow, for being a great trainer. One of the first lessons I ever learned in this business, is that you nevr stop learning, every time you get in the ring learn something new, and with Al he made that so easy.Thanks AL! I would like to thank Danny Davis for being a father figure to me the past year. I could always go talk to Danny about anything, and he would listen and give me advice. I am truely sorry that OVW will no longer be part of the WWE..its really is the end of an era. I am just glad I was part of that era. Thanks also to KC , maybe one day we will get a REAL chance to show the world how great we really are as a tag team ! Many people have asked whats next for me?!? Lets just say I am not planning on retiring anytime soon! But for the next few weeks, I am gonna make up for some lost time with my wife Dee Dee, my dog Mali Mae, and my entire family. I am also accepting independent bookings , please feel free to contact me threw myspace or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org , or visit my website www.cassidyriley.net . …Thanks and God Bless !!! Cassidy

Yesterday morning, “CW11 News” in New York City did a segment where they interviewed 3 Hooters girls who had previously posed for Playboy. One of the girls, Beverly Mullins, was asked what she does now, and she said “I’m doing WWE wrestling now, training to be a Diva”. Mullins is not the only Playboy model under a WWE developmental contract – we reported here yesterday that WWE also recently signed Playboy model and former Diva Search contestant Taryn Terrell.
