-- Fandango's dark match opponent at Tuesday's SmackDown taping in Cleveland, Ohio, was journeyman wrestler Pepper Parks.
The 13-year independent wrestling circuit veteran was profiled the week before by SLAM! Wrestling (article available here). Despite being over 30-years-old and apparently not meeting WWE's size standard, he continues to vie for a WWE contract.
"A while back, WWE was going through this thing, where they were saying that they didn't want to hire 'rookies.' But a lot of things have changed with Triple H taking over and everything," Parks said. "I know guys personally who have gotten signed and are close to 30. I don't listen to any of that stuff, because I don't think age or height or look really matter, as long as you have what it takes, and you have what they're looking for."
