-- WWE part-timer Mick Foley appeared on WGN TV in Chicago on Friday morning to promote his new children's book, "Most Mizerable Christmas" and talk about concussions, which was a hot topic in Chicago this week after Bears star Brian Urlacher dismissed concussions in an interview. "He needs a little sensitivity training," Foley said before saying Urlacher needs to be more educated about the topic when in a position of influence.
-- Injured WWE wrestler Evan Bourne "should be back hopefully soon," according to his former Air Boom tag partner Kofi Kingston.
"Yeah, Evan is doing all right, he has been doing some rehab for his ankle," Kofi told Smacktalk Radio promoting Survivor Series. "He'll be back before we know it and doing what he does best and that’s fly around the ring and do all types of superhero/action figure-esque video game type moves... Not sure the exact timetable on it, but, yeah, he's doing great."
Also during his appearance on SmackTalk Radio, Kingston addressed the possibility of turning heel on WWE TV. "To be honest, I've always been a guy who looks at everything with a pretty positive outlook," Kofi said. "As far as going the other way, it really is up to the WWE Universe. As long as everyone is boom-clapping with me, I'll stay with them... I don't want to say never, you never say never in the WWE." [ Kofi's full interview here at SmackTalkRadioLive.com ]
-- WWE announcer Jim Ross has published a new blog on jrsbarbq.com with his Scouting Report on WWE's Developmental system following Thursday's NXT TV taping. Ross had high praise for Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Leo Kruger, and Big E. Langston. Plus, praise for main-roster stars Antonio Cesaro, Michael McGillicutty, and a "vastly underrated" Tyson Kidd.
Ross also praised Sara Del Rey's work with the Developmental Divas. "Sarah Del Ray doing an excellent job working/coaching the Divas," Ross write. "IMO (it) was the best in-ring Divas bouts Thursday night as I've seen in WWE in a while. Layla, Alicia Fox, Paige, and newcomer Sasha did well." [ Ross's full blog here at jrsbarbq.com ]
