What is the deal with some of the independent standouts that have come to WWE but have not been called up? Wrestlers like Chris Hero & Brodie Lee?

Chris Hero (as Kassius Ohno) and Brodie Lee (as Luke Harper) are working in NXT Wrestling in preparation for the main WWE roster. WWE's developmental system is loaded with talent and it all comes down to creative plans and the correct opportunity before they are called up. There is no guarantee when a worker signs a developmental contract they will get the call-up but it's up to them to work hard to impress company officials in Florida.

What has Dustin Rhodes been up to since being released from the WWE?

Dustin Rhodes has been finding work on the independent circuit and is available for seminars and signings. Those interested in booking him can do so at To keep up with his latest updates, you can follow him on Twitter at this link. For those unaware of his WWE release, Rhodes was terminated in May 2012 after working backstage as a producer. We broke the news here on Premium.

It's been three months since the last time we saw Christian and Jack Swagger on WWE television. What's the latest on their status?

Christian is recovering from injury and expected back some time next month. We've heavily discussed his status on numerous occasions and for the latest, check out his news page. As for Jack Swagger, he was believed to be on his way out of the company at one point but met with Vince McMahon in November and was assured he would be repackaged. Swagger has a new look and is working current WWE holiday live events.

What are your thoughts on Hulk Hogan wanting to become the TNA World Heavyweight Champion?

Hulk Hogan jokingly said he wanted knee surgery for Christmas and would then go for the TNA world title. We thought it was funny and published the comment although some are speculating this is Hogan hinting he wants to wrestle again. You never know with Hogan, which is why I think the comment generated such a large response.
