Set up by Devon...
- WWE recently had a tryout camp in Dubai. The National.ae has an article about the camp, which was run by William Regal and Sami Zayn. Zayn was likely there as a translator for Regal, as he speaks Arabic. The article covers Zaid "Picture Perfect" Khan, a 26-year-old British resident who has been training professionally for two years.
Khan said of his tryout: ""I really didn't think it would happen but my brother kept telling me ‘be ready, they are coming to Dubai'. It wasn't until I walked in and saw the ring that it actually sunk in. I was about to try out for the WWE. [WWE superstars] William Regal and Sami Zayn were here testing us out. It was so surreal. The warm-up alone was the most tiring thing ever, and the whole time I was trying not to show that I'm tired. Eight people didn't make it through the warm-up."
He said he was one of only fourteen people to make it through the tests and will find out within a few weeks if WWE is interested in him.
- We previously reported that the TNA roster came out after last night's Impact Wrestling tapings to sing happy birthday to Al Snow. The entire segment was actually a rib by Devon, as Snow's birthday isn't until July 18. Devon had been ribbing Snow all week. He grabbed the microphone and had everyone come out, even though many didn't know Snow's birthday wasn't until July. (Credit: PWInsider via Wrestlezone)
