WWE News & Notes

WWE has grown concerned with Rikishi’s weight. He put on some extra weight when he was out for a few months recently and WWE wants him to lose some of it.

– WWE was pleased with the work of Horshu at the Canadian house shows over the weekend. They feel he has a lot of potential.

– Spanky, Paul London, and Kidman were told to “slow it down” in regard to their ring style at the house shows this weekend. WWE told them to use their “less is more” theory.

– WWE has told the Hurricane to stop using the chokeslam move. They feel he is too small to pull off the move in a convincing manner.

– WWE is very high on Jindrak and Cade and feel they have a bright future. They think that Cade is ahead of Jindrak in terms of development, but that both are good young talents.

– Steven Richards aggravated a shoulder injury that he has had since his ECW days last night on RAW. He took a stiff slam from John Heidenreich. He was examined following his match and will be monitored to make sure the injury does not get worse.
