Huge Mayhem **SPOILER** for this Week + other JBW news
As reported last week on this site, a huge return to in ring action is planned for the upcoming Mayhem and the PPV. We can confirm that this return is NOT Samson, and the rumor that has been floating around JBW lately is not true. The rumor was that the vignettes that were posted on the last two Mayhem episodes were to hype a returning Samson and The Great Cobra from EWNCW (who was reportedly "jumping ship") as they were to team up to take on Chainsaw and his minions. As we said this is not the case at all, as there has been no contact made by JBW and The Great Cobra, and Samson (real name Samuel Steen) is reportedly enjoying retirement.
Samson is said to have been "enjoying the rest and relaxation. I get to catch up on my writing and watching my horror movies now." and he has "no regrets at all" about being killed off in storyline. The real reason for the vignettes is being held extremely close to the vest by JBW management, and they have been very good at not letting anything leak out to this point.
In other news, The Crippler's injury sustained on last week's Mayhem appears to be legit, as he's gone under surgery to repair a torn ligament in his shoulder. Word is he expects to miss about 6-8 weeks due to this injury, and JBW president TBO has scolded Wes Goldman for being far too stiff in matches lately.
