Earlier this month, Tomko was released by TNA. This week, he shows up backstage during the SmackDown/ECW tapings in Norfolk, VA. When Tomko was first released by TNA, the speculation was that he would head on over to Japan to work full time. It’s a smart business move for Tomko to check things out with WWE just in case it’s a better deal than Japan. Tomko really enjoys working in Japan, but if he signs with WWE, he’ll obviously have to stop working there. Then again, this could just be something where Tomko was just backstage visiting friends.
