As reported earlier, Juventud has been released by WWE. The release was expected for awhile due to Juventud’s often out-of-control behavior. Juvi has always been known as a rebel and while he wasn’t as bad as in the past while with WWE, he was not a model employee. Juvi often did not listen to what the WWE road agents told him about his moves and style and did what he wanted to do in the ring. Many of his friends were disappointed to see him blow his shot in WWE, especially that he is older now. Super Crazy and Psicosis, fearing that his behavior would rub off on them, asked WWE management to be separated from him on air. Most feel that Juvi’s behavior has cost him stardom as he was considered to be a far better wrestler than Rey Mysterio in the early 90s. In WCW, he became infamous after he danced naked in an Australia hotel hallway while high on drugs.
Kid Kash vs. Jamie Noble vs. Juventud was shoaled for the weekend SmackDown! brand house shows but with Juvi gone and Kash’s injury, we’ll have to wait and see what they do with that. Kid Kash vs. Juventud (his last match) airs tonight on SmackDown!.
Speaking of Kash, his injury is said to be a severely bruised arm and not a break. He was getting it looked at today.
There will be a marathon of the Hogan Knows Best show tonight on Country Music Television starting at 5:30 p.m.
A tape of the 2003 episode of Greatest Celebrity feuds hosted by Steve Austin airs on VH-1 at 9 p.m. tonight
