— As noted earlier here on the website, Brad Maddox, who had been competing in WWE’s developmental promotion, has been promoted to the main roster as a referee. He officiated the No. 1 Contender’s Battle Royal on RAW won by Kaitlyn. His profile has been removed from FCWWrestling.info, which further indicates that he will no longer be used in a wrestler capacity.
Maddox had reigned as FCW Tag Team Champion and FCW 15 Champion when the titles were deactivated last week due to Florida Championship Wrestling being renamed NXT Wrestling.
