Former contestant on season 2 of the VH1 show I Love New York, David Otunga (aka Punk) made his debut in Florida Championship Wrestling. He wrestles under the name Dawson Jackson and seemed tentative in his first match.

Chris Masters has resigned with the WWE, but will not be returning to television in the immediate future. I would guess that he will return at Summerslam.

In other news, the WWE has released developmental wrestlers Dakota “Maverick” Darsow (son of Barry “Demolition Man” Darsow), Lupe Santiago, and Jon Cutler. Not much is known about the reasons as to why the wrestlers were released, but I would imagine that information will be coming out soon.

More releases including some wrestlers on the main roster are said to be coming soon.

Fan Protest and a TNA note

This came in from wrestlinginc:

Fans at a Florida Championship Wrestling event erupted with a “Colt Cabana” chant during a ringside segment.  The chant was a result of Cabana, or as the WWE named him, Scotty Goldman, being released.  The chants angered “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes as he turned to the fans and told them “he’s gone.”

Well, I do know one thing. Colt Cabana is back and the wrestling world is better for it.

In TNA news, the website is showing the next challengers for Beer Money Inc.’s “Off the Wagon” challenge.  The challenger’s will be LAX.  I know this won’t happen, but wouldn’t it be interesting if LAX held every title (minus the Knockout Title) in the company?  Remember, they do have title shots for the X Division and Heavywieght Championship belts from Feast or Fired.

If LAX controlled the titles in the company, this could prove very interesting for the Frontline/ Main Event Mafia angle. Homicide and Hernandez have the credentials to be in both factions, and both factions will be selling themselves for them.  We will have to wait until Thursday to see what happens, but it sure is an interesting proposition.
