It seems like no one bothered to mention that K.C. James had been out with some sort of injury for a few months. That explains why Idol Stevens was teaming without him in OVW for some unknown reason for a few months. James finally returned to action a few weeks ago in OVW. James & Stevens were told that the team would be brought back up to the main roster when James finally recovered, but that obviously hasn’t happened yet. While James was out with an injury, Idol Stevens was teaming up with fellow WWE demotee Johnny Jeter.

Speaking of Johnny Jeter, he’s gained some weight since being demoted to OVW and is said to look “Pillsbury Doughboy-like”. The weight gain has slowed his ring speed. Former Spirit Squad member Mikey, who is now in OVW as well, has also gained some weight, although it hasn’t really affected his ring speed. Even so, his physique has been compared to that of 80’s wrestling star Buddy Rose before his weight got out of control.

Mark Henry gained quite a bit of weight while he was out with an injury. He looks to be in the neighborhood of 450 to 460 pounds. WWE’s website bills him as being 380 pounds. He also looked immobile in his return match against Daniel Rodimer in OVW a few weeks ago. He was also seen sporting a huge knee brace.
