21 Wrestlers In Scandal, WWE Media Ban, Backstage News

Ryan Clark

You can bump the Signature Pharmacy client list up to 21 wrestlers now. Sports Illustrated writer Louis Fernando Llosa was a guest on MSNBC yesterday. He said that Kurt Angle was on the customer list, but he referenced him as a former Olympic Gold Medalist, not a current pro wrestler.

WWE is set to begin an international tour next week and was contacting talent yesterday previously not scheduled to make the trip to tell them they had been added. Of course, this is all due to the eleven talents being suspended in the last two days, hence the sudden change of plans.

Quite like in the case in the weeks after the Chris Benoit tragedy, WWE has again put a media ban on their talent talking with the media and making appearances going forward for the next few weeks. Already scheduled appearances will likely be honored, but don’t expect their wrestlers to be appearing on radio shows or talking with newspapers this week.

On a separate note, Carlos Colon — father of WWE star Carlito — has been in talks with WWE to make his WWC promotion a developmental territory. IWA, also in Puerto Rico, had a similar deal years ago and that didn’t work out.
