Xavier Woods wrestled last night using his former gimmick, losing to Adam Rose in a dark match before the Smackdown tapings.

This follows our earlier report that WWE has all but dropped a new stable consisting of Big E, Kofi Kingston and Woods. Big E and Kofi both wrestled last night using their own former gimmicks, with no mention of the ‘Nation 2.0’ that they had recently formed.

Former Diva Talks About Eating Disorder

Former WWE/NXT Diva Shaul Guerrero, who performed as Raquel Diaz, abruptly left the company in 2012 before returning for a short time in September 2013. She was eventually let go by WWE in April 2014, and has revealed why she originally left the company in a new interview with Chris Kelly on Headlocks 2 Headlines. 

Guerrero revealed that she had been dealing with an eating disorder, and had the following to say about leaving, and if she was thinking about a return:

“Actually, I went into rehab for an eating disorder.  I was really close to Joey Mercury when I was in FCW, he was my mentor/coach. He, along with the strength and conditioning coach, noticed that I was really sick and I was just not mentally okay and physically doing a really bad job of doing what I needed to do and they finally convinced me to go into rehab for a long time disease I had.

I took two months off and stayed in an (rehab) facility and from then on, I didn’t know how to come back to wrestling and still keep my recovery intact because this business is very much based on how you look. I was just not ready for that kind of challenge so I took a whole year off and really focused on myself and really needed to get health mentality, emotionally and spiritually.”

Other subjects talked about in this interview include her ideas to work with her mother Vickie Guerrero, WWE not using her Guerrero name, and her thoughts on AJ Lee and Paige. Guerrero also share her thoughts on her ‘Ultra Diva’ gimmick, her 2014 release from WWE, if she would join TNA, and much more.
