WWE is set to begin an international tour next week and was contacting talent yesterday previously not scheduled to make the trip to tell them they had been added. Of course, this is all due to the eleven talents being suspended in the last two days, hence the sudden change of plans.
Quite like in the case in the weeks after the Chris Benoit tragedy, WWE has again put a media ban on their talent talking with the media and making appearances going forward for the next few weeks. Already scheduled appearances will likely be honored, but don’t expect their wrestlers to be appearing on radio shows or talking with newspapers this week.
On a separate note, Carlos Colon — father of WWE star Carlito — has been in talks with WWE to make his WWC promotion a developmental territory. IWA, also in Puerto Rico, had a similar deal years ago and that didn’t work out.
