Since the company has no interest in pushing them as singles performes, the idea being tossed around backstage right now has the Miz and Dolph Ziggler forming a tag team. WWE is also interested in giving them a gimmick where they both are disgruntled with the company.
While working in OVW, Brad Maddox had a necrophiliac gimmick named Brent "Beef" Wellington.
"We are thinking of making you guys the new 'Midnight Express. I just went, 'Oh, no. Anything new, whatever it is, it's not going to work.' That (idea) was doomed for failure right away. What are you going to say? That's brutal… a horrible idea, and I know Sean (Morley) felt the same way. We were like, this is not good, but we'll make it work and be a kick-ass tag team no matter what they call us; we'll do good with this."
During the mid 1980s, Nikolai Volkoff made his return to WWE after stints in the AWA and Mid South. Upon his return, someone came up with the idea to have him sing the Russian national anthem to generate heel heat, as the United States was at odds with the country.
For years, one of the most recognizable traits on a wrestler were the scars that were seen on the forehead of Abdullah the Butcher. The origin of that damage was from years and years of blading, in order to maintain his violent character. The trademark appearance is so popular that some Japanese cartoon makers have adopted it as well
Things in professional wrestling have a way of leaking out of backstage, but the reason for Layla El being gone from WWE has been a tightly kept secret. She has not been involved in a televised match since September, and there does not appear to be a rush to have her return.
Over the last several weeks, Layla El has been given time away from the road, but the long time WWE diva recently made a return to the company during a special New Year's Eve photo shoot. No return date has been revealed for her yet, though.
Layla El, who has been taking time away from WWE for an undisclosed reason, recently attended the Kanye West concert with a friend.
Layla El has not been seen on WWE television for a couple of months now and many are wondering what her status with the company is. Many are under the impression that she is not injured and simply taking time off to deal with personal issues.
Layla El once danced with Kanye West during a performance at the MTV Music Awards.
