— WWE recently brought in 23 to 25 individuals (some independent wrestlers with several years experience) as recruits of Gerald Brisco. Most involved were highly successful college wrestlers. A focus was put on the basics including running the ropes, flat back bumps, agility and cardio training and conditioning and drive. It was considered a test for some to see who would quit first. Bill DeMott and William Regal ran the camp. Evaluations were done by Terry Taylor, Dusty Rhodes, Steve Keirn, Norman Smiley, Jim Ross, Gerald Brisco, Ricky Steamboat and Joey Mercury.
— For those who always ask me about pay-per-view streams, I’ll throw this out there with the WWE No Way Out pay-per-view tonight. We are not affiliated with this website at all but I use wsnlive.com. Basically you sign up for an account, make it ‘elite’ (it’s like $10 or something for the entire month – all PPVs) and you get a HQ Quality stream. It works every time for us and never skips. Again, we’re not affiliated with the site but I always get asked so here you go. It’s well worth it.
