Shawne Merriman Training
Former NFL player Shawn Merriman was at the WWE Performance Center this week, as noted by trainer Bill DeMott via Twitter. Merriman, who has had some Twitter beef with CM Punk in the past, posted a picture on his official Facebook fan page after his first day of training. His arm was very scratched up and bruised and the accompanying message read, "A hard days work 1 down 364 to go #PainWhatPain #LightsOut"
WWE Negotiating for HOF Items
WWE were recently in negotiations with Charlie Thesz, the widow of Lou Thesz, over his wrestling collection of one-of-a-kind items and memorabilia. They are wanting the items for a physical Hall of Fame they plan to open at some point in the future. If the deals went through, The Observer is reporting WWE would likely induct Thesz into the Hall of Fame as a result.
