WWE Scraps Diva’s Brief Run with New Gimmick

According to The Wrestling Observer, WWE has dropped Alicia Fox’s tantrum gimmick, which saw her “lose it” after match defeats and react oddly in front of the live crowd. The gimmick had people buzzing for awhile, but for whatever reason WWE has decided to drop it.

Zayn Talks KENTA in WWE

WWE NXT standout Sami Zayn was interviewed by Brian Fritz of BetweentheRopes.com at an Anti-Bullying rally in Orlando this week, and the following is what Zayn had to say regarding KENTA’s in WWE:

“I’m very excited. There’s a lot of good talent coming in, a lot of my kind of guys, world traveled, workrate, nose to the grindstone, gritty sort of passionate guys, which is what I personally believe in. Its great to see these guys get an opportunity. KENTA’s just been busting his butt for so long and killing it for so long. Its great to see him get an opportunity like this. I am really looking forward to hopefully wrestling him because I actually never have. I was supposed to wrestle him once, but he went down with a knee injury. I teamed with him a couple of times, but I’ve never actually had a one on one match with him. I look forward to that opportunity.”
