TNA has signed a deal with Jersey Shore cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. The deal is for four different Impact Wrestling episodes. His first appearance will be at the October 26th tapings in Macon, Georgia.
Regarding the recent WWE tryouts in Mexico, it's being reported there that Dr. Wagner III, Hiji del LA Park and Bestia 666 were some of the stars who got tryouts. They are the sons of their famous fathers. Apparently they got the tryouts at the behest of Rey Mysterio, who is close to their fathers.
Brazilian wrestler Zumbi is also rumored to have worked a tryout. Word is that of the 7 CMLL guys who got tryouts on Sunday, one has been offered a deal but it's unknown if they accepted or not.
Hugo Savinovich, color commentator for WWE's Spanish language television and pay-per-view broadcasts since 1997, announced Wednesday on YouTube that he is parting ways with the organization.
Savinovich says organization officials informed him a few days ago that his expiring contract would not be renewed. He thanks Vince McMahon for giving him the opportunity to work for WWE fourteen years ago after he fell hard on drugs. He does not know if he will continue to call wrestling matches, but he does know that he will be writing a book dedicated to spreading the word of God.
