Even More On Carlito/WWE, New SSeries Match, More

Ryan Clark

WWE has put nearly all of Carlito’s merchandise available on WWEShop.com on clearance. They rarely do this to nearly all of a wrestler’s merchandise unless he is no longer affiliated with the company. Carlito made two special appearances on the Smackdown/ECW tour in Puerto Rico because that is his home country and obviously the market where he means the most. Carlito jobbed to Matt Hardy & Rey Mysterio on two shows on the tour. Fans where shocked by the result of his match with Matt Hardy considering that San Juan is his hometown. He was also on the losing end of a six-man tag match on Friday, but did not take the pinfall. As noted last week, Carlito is said to be unhappy with the direction WWE has been pushing him in as of late. It it is being said that he requested to be released from the company last week. WWE has not granted him a release yet but may do so this week. It wouldn’t shock me at all and I truly believe his release is forthcoming.

WWE has announced a 10 Divas Tag Team Match for Survivor Series this Sunday featuring WWE Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix, Jillian Hall, Melina, Victoria & Layla vs. Mickie James, Maria, Torrie Wilson, Michelle McCool and Kelly Kelly.

Photos of WWE’s Raw brand in Australia are up at WWE.com. Photos of WWE’s Smackdown & ECW brands in Puerto Rico are up at WWE.com as well.

As announced earlier, Kane & Rey Mysterio vs. Finlay & Big Daddy V is scheduled for ECW tomorrow night in Wichita, KS. Also announced for the Smackdown taping the same night is The Hardys vs. Mr. Kennedy & MVP and Batista vs. Mark Henry.

As noted earlier today here on the site, Nicolas Cage is now out as the star of the upcoming film “The Wrestler” and has been replaced by Mickey Rourke. There remains no word on why this change went down. Cage seemed very interested and even attended last weekend’s Ring of Honor event in New York researching for the role.

Adam Lebow sent this in: Wanted to pass along that I was just watching the CNN special Death Grip, and it appears as if they have gone and edited the special to include Cena now responding to the question if he did take ‘roids, saying ‘Absolutely Not’. It was a 5 second edit of the show, with the rest of Cena segment airing as it did on its first run. I saw the special (on Saturday) and this edit was not there.
