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 trademark appearance is so popular that some Japanese cartoon makers have adopted it as well
Shelton Benjamin is on the sidelines after having elbow surgery, but that doesn't mean that he's avoiding the wrestling ring. The former WWE star recently was a guest trainer at a seminar held by Booker T in Houston.
Shelton Benjamin revealed that he had successful surgery on his elbow this past Tuesday. The former WWE star is now back at home and recovering. The elbow has been bothering him for quite some time now, and he needed the surgery to avoid long term risk to his health.
"As of tonight Im taking time off from wrestling to take care of a long neglected medical issue. So I assure you all I will not be at the Royal Rumble. Basically I have a pinched Ulner nerve in my elbow that causes lose of sensation, motor function, muscle atrophy & eventually use of my hand. So before things get bad i gotta take quick pause. But after 12 years and no major injuries pro wrestling this I consider very minor"
Through Twitter, Shelton Benjamin revealed that the biggest regret he has about his time in WWE was the fact that he never got to participate in any of the Tribute to the Troops show that the company does on a yearly basis.
Shelton Benjamin went on a little shopping spree, as the former WWE star purchased the brand new PS4, several games and extra controllers.
