While continuing to expand their international presence, WWE has opened an office in Shanghai, China.

Sylvan Grenier’s (a/k/a Sylvan) release on August 15th came as somewhat of a surprise to many in the industry as he wasn’t much most of his career, but WWE continued to keep him around. Lately he had improved pairing with Maryse, but unfortunately, for WWE officials, not enough.
