WWE News: Brock, Tenta, Oleg, More
– It appears that WWE has shelved the “Talkin Smack” online show due to creative issues. The show, which was hosted by Tazz and Michael Cole, only had one episode.
– Oleg Prudius has officially signed with WWE. Prudius was the guy that Jerry Jarrett brought to WWE a few months back.
– Former WWE star John Tenta is struggling in his fight against cancer. Tenta posted the following message on the Wrestlecrap.com forum.
“I’ve been very busy. My last scan results were very disappointing. Despite being on chemo, the tumors in my hip, and both lungs continued to grow. The doctor is starting me on new chemo this Monday. It is a new combination, of chemo I’ve already had. The doctor says it has a one in ten chance of working. If that doesn’t work, I will try experimental drugs. If nothing works, I have a life expectancy of six months to a year.”
– WWE has once again requested a temporary restraining order against Brock Lesnar to keep him from wrestling on the 2/19 New Japan Pro-Wrestling show. Judge Christopher Droney has told WWE that if they don’t provide an argument as to why Lesnar’s lawsuit against them should be argued in court, Droney will make a ruling by 1/25 on Lesnar’s request for a summary judgment in the case. If the ruling is in favor of Lesnar, who could become free to work anywhere including TNA.
