The Great Khali, Daivari, Sylvester Terkay and Elijah Burke were all moved to be ECW because SmackDown head writer Michael Hayes had nothing for them in the way of ideas. Basically, he wanted to get rid of them, and thus they were moved to a different brand.
There were plans for William Regal and Dave Taylor to feud with Brian Kendrick and Paul London over the tag team titles, but that’s obviously out of the window now due to Taylor’s knee injury. Taylor suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee at the 10/24 SmackDown tapings. Taylor is expected to be out of action for three to four months, but considering that he is 51 years old, this could be a tougher comeback for the former Blue Blood member.
Regarding Mick Foley’s upcoming wrestling book, it is tentatively titled, The Hardcore Diaries, and it is scheduled to be released in March. The book is an in-depth look at his coming out of retirement this past year, starting with his program with Edge and finishing with his program with Ric Flair. Foley will talk about the formation of the ideas and where they went, along with details on his real-life relationship with Flair. You can probably also expect there to be several mentions of Melina as well.
