— WWE’s RAW crew is holding a live event tonight at Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy om Paris, France and will finish up their portion of the international tour on Saturday with a show at Lotto Arena in Antwerp, Belgium. SmackDown is at Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, England tonight and finish up on Saturday at Braehead Arena in Glasgow, Scotland.
— As noted yesterday, Terry Taylor is rumored to be joining WWE’s developmental system at a new “finishing school” near WWE headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. He will be one of the top trainers at the facility, which will launch in the next few months. The school is designed to be the last stop for FCW talent before they are called up to the main roster.
— We noted earlier today here on the website that Canadian Wrestling Elite announced that “Psycho” Sid Vicious will not be appearing at tonight’s show at Maples Community Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba because he missed his scheduled flight this morning. According to CWE official Danny Warren, Vicious explained that he was sore from setting up bleachers last night and decided to sleep in.
“Unfortunately at this time I have to regretfully inform everyone that “Psycho” Sid Vicious decided not to get on his plane this morning, first because he “slept in” followed by not wanting to get on another flight as his knees were sore from setting up bleachers last night.. Yes, f*cking bleachers. Refunds will be available tonight for anyone who would like one,” Warren wrote on Facebook.
Vicious has a history of being unreliable to wrestling promoters as he has no-showed several scheduled appearances throughout his career. More recently, Vicious skipped an advertised appearance for Pro Wrestling Syndicate on March 9, explaining that his wallet was stolen and couldn’t make his scheduled flight. In response, event promoter Pat Buck called Vicious during the show in the middle of the ring and had the audience boo him while leaving a voice message. Buck then disclosed Vicious’ phone number to fans.
