Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Chuck Palumbo’s long-awaited return seems to be on the horizon. Palumbo was told that he would restarting as a heel on television any week now. Palumbo has been sitting at home for practically a year now. He was signed on March 12, 2006. He’s appeared in a few SmackDown dark matches as of late, so it looks like he will be assigned to the SmackDown or ECW roster when he does return. Also, he may have some sort of new gimmick because he’s worn a “Willy Wonka” style top hat to the ring in his most recent appearances.

WWE has signed a person by the name of Ryklon Stephens to a developmental deal. Not much is known of him other than that he’s 28 years old, 6-2, about 270 pounds now, and a bodybuilder. He doesn’t appear to have any wrestling experience other than some training at the California-based UPW promotion. Anyways, he has been assigned to Deep South Wrestling in Georgia.
