— ECW wrestler Vladimir Kozlov has been getting good agent reports from his matches on the house show circuit with Finlay as they believe he’s starting to pick up on basic wrestling concepts, something he struggled with initially. While Kozlov has been described as a good athlete, the biggest knock on him is that he entered the wrestling industry with no prior knowledge and started well into his thirties.
— As reported earlier, World Wrestling Entertainment recently signed April Jeanette, a 22-year-old who worked Northeast independent wrestling shows as “Miss April,” to a developmental contract.
She was trained by TNA wrestler “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal at the ACE wrestling school and is believed to be his girlfriend as well. As of late, she had been working for the Women Superstars Uncensored promotion as part of a tag team called the AC Express.
Jeanette is originally from Union City, New Jersey and attended New York University’s School of the Arts while working independent shows. She started training two years ago and had her first wrestling match six months later.
One person who has closely worked with Jeanette described her as looking like a Spanish/Asian mix, pretty, and a great worker considering she’s had less than 20 matches in her career. While she stands out as a worker on the indy level, according to this person, she doesn’t show much charisma or personality, not to mention that she seemed adverse to coaching when it came to promos.
Ring wise, she has been described as having the potential to be as good as Gail Kim, but also could become someone who just does fancy moves because she is athletic enough to perform them.
— WWE officials recently inquired about purchasing the Mid-South/UWF tape library, but both sides are still far apart in money. The collection is owned by Ene Watts, the ex-wife of WWE Hall of Famer “Cowboy” Bill Watts, and is one of the last historical wrestling libraries which has not yet been acquired by World Wrestling Entertainment.
