Jonathan Coachman’s WWE contract is expiring within the next few months. There has been quite a bit of speculation that Coachman could leave the company for a full-time job with MSG Network, although he hasn’t said anything about it yet.

Shane McMahon wasn’t at television this past Monday, which is pretty rare for a Northeastern Raw.

Former Spirit Squad member Nic “Nicky” Nemeth is on the road this weekend with the Raw crew working some tryout matches. He’s doing a gimmick calling himself “The Natural”, which is said to be a mix of Billy Gunn & Hardcore Holly. Nemeth has been in developmental since November 2006, but out of the all the former Spirit Squad members, appears to have the best chance of getting back on the main roster. Mike “Mikey” Mondo is still under contract to WWE, but is still in developmental, and it doesn’t look like he’s getting a call-up to the main roster anytime soon. Johnny Jeter is still under contract to WWE as well, but has seemingly fallen off the company’s stratosphere. He wasn’t appearing on Ohio Valley Wrestling shows during the last days of WWE’s affiliation with the company, and he still has yet to appear on any Florida Championship Wrestling shows after three months. Also, he was one of the only talents under contract to not come to Orlando for WrestleMania weekend.
