– Sources say that of the five WWE releases confirmed over the weekend, only referee Scott Armstrong’s “future endeavors” message caught the locker room by true surprise. Details have not emerged, but the feeling is that there is likely a greater story involved.
– Shelton Benjamin has been added to the SmackDown roster so it appears he is now a member of the brand with Ezekiel Jackson from ECW. Former ECW stars coming to RAW so far include William Regal, Christian and Yoshi Tatsu. WWE still hasn’t removed Maria from the roster.
– Recently released WWE talent Paul Burchill will be appearing on May 8th in White Plains, NY at the New York Wrestling Fan Fest.
– WWE released their full pay-per-view calendar for the rest of 2010 to media partners this past week and the most notable change from what we’ve seen is the May pay-per-view titled Wild Card has been changed to WWE Over The Limit. Survivor Series is still being advertised for November but it’s expected that name will be changed but not confirmed.
