— As noted earlier, Florida Championship Wrestling, the official developmental territory of WWE, held its annual Talent Evaluation Clinic this past weekend. The FCW Clinic is the only clinic where WWE producers, WWE scouts and WWE Superstars are in attendance to evaluate potential WWE talent. The camp was attended by over 50 dreamers and it is believed that only a handful would imminently land contracts with the organization.
A photo has surfaced online of the group of female talent who took part in WWE’s Evaluation Clinic. Among those trying out include former TNA performer Josette Bynum (a/k/a Sojournor Bolt, Josie), former TNA performer Bonnie Maxon (a/k/a Ms. Payton Banks, Rain), AAA Women’s Champion Sexy Star, independent wrestler She Nay Nay (notably competed against Beth Phoenix last October on an episode of Friday Night SmackDown), and a pair of blonde twins from Ohio Valley Wrestling known as The Blossom Twins.
It has yet to be indicated whether any of the females who tried out at the clinic were offered WWE contracts. At least in Bynum’s case, it would appear that WWE has once again declined signing the multi-time OVW Women’s Champion as she wrote on her Facebook account on Tuesday that she would be touring Canada next month. She performed for OVW when the promotion served as WWE’s developmental program, but was never offered a contract. Company officials also declined signing Bynum to a contract following a September 2008 tryout in Louisville, Kentucky.

— A report surfaced earlier this week indicating WWE developmental talent AJ Lee and Aksana took part in a Divas Tag Match at Sunday’s Raw live event in Fort Myers, Florida. The report is incorrect as Gail Kim and Jillian Hall were misidentified as the prospective Diva talent.
Lee reigns as the “Queen of Florida” in the developmental promotion while Aksana is a blonde Lithuanian fitness model the company signed last year.
