Lashley Backstage At WWE Show, Missing WWE Star Returns, MVP's Next Move


— Umaga made his return to the ring at last night’s SmackDown brand house show in Tyler, Texas. He defeated Hurricane Helms with the Samoan Spike. Umaga got a big face response from the audience despite acting like a heel. Umaga suffered a torn PCL at a house show five months ago during a match with Jeff Hardy. He made an appearance at a Florida Championship Wrestling show in October, but apparently wasn’t really ready to return.

— WWE’s apparently testing out a “quitting” angle with MVP at house shows, which looks to be the next turn in his losing streak storyline. Following his loss to Kizarny at last night’s SmackDown brand house, MVP got on the mic saying he quit. They did the exact same angle at a house show last week.

— Jim Varsallone of The Miami Herald has an article on Friday night’s Raw brand house show at the Bank Atlantic Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. At the event, Varsallone saw a number of fans wearing John Cena shirts, holding John Cena belts and waving homemade John Cena signs. Varsallone criticized people who criticize John Cena, saying: “Those on the Internet, moaning and complaining about Cena or anything else WWE related, aren’t spending much when it comes to WWE house shows, pay-per-views and merchandise.” He also said Bobby Lashley was backstage at the show. {Kids love Cena; Bank Atlantic issues}
