WWE sent out feelers to Yoshihiro Tajiri about making a comeback but he was not interested.
John Laurinaitis is pushing for Lance Hoyt to be brought in. Hoyt has seemingly been in touch with Laurinaitis and said he could get out of TNA with no problems.

WWE has come into conflict with Harman International, an electronics company, over the ‘JBL’ trademark. Harman uses it after its founder, James Bullough Lansing, and claims 20 trademarks over parts of the name.
The 23rd July edition of the Wrestling Observer has some major spoilers regarding the WWE Championship this summer, so…
