RELEASED… Tyler Reks leaves you with this

I just want to say thank you to WWE, Inc. for allowing me to be part of an incredible entertainment experience. On Monday, I asked for my release and the company was gracious enough to grant my request. 

I realized recently that being a Superstar means sacrificing certain things, including time with my family. As a new father, my heart broke every time I had to leave to go on the road. I didn’t ever want to miss another moment with my daughter, so I made the decision to be a full time dad and hang up my boots. 

I will miss everyone in the locker room tremendously as they have all become a second family to me. I want to thank my coaches and teachers that really helped me along the way: Fit Finlay, Arn Anderson, Edge, Christian, Kane, Jericho, Dr. Tom, Norman Smiley, and Billy Kidman.

I also want to thank my boys. You know who you are. Especially though, a huge thank you to Hawkins. You were like a brother to me the last year and I’ll miss you and will always love you bro. I wish you the best and thanks for understanding that I had to go be a dad. When she’s older, and able to realize what happened, I know Mia will thank you as well.

Thanks to all the dedicated fans of #ReksAndHawkins and to The #RekkingCrew. I would never have survived without you.

For anyone interested, I am currently the owner of an Internet Marketing Company that specializes in Search Engine Optimization, Pay-Per-Click, Website Design, and Reputation Management. You can find my company here:

 
For fans hoping that Chris Jericho will be back on WWE television next Monday night, don’t get your hopes up. Jericho will doing a promotional appearance for Fozzy on Monday night at Collector’s Realm in Poughkeepsie, New York. Jericho and 

the rest of the band will be appearing from 5:30-7:30pm EST to signing CDs and celebrate the release of their new album, “Sin & Bones” (now available at Amazon.com). 

– The broadcast team for the WWE Saturday Morning Slam taping that took place on Tuesday night from Bakersfield, California was Josh Mathews and Santino Marella. It’s worth noting that Josh Matthews was kept off the SmackDown tapings due to “injuries” he sustained at the hands of Kane at SummerSlam, yet he was able to do commentary for Saturday Morning Slam, which was taped right before SmackDown.

 
Titus O’Neil and Darren Young are expected to win the WWE Tag Team Titles soon. Many people in WWE thought the title change would happen at SummerSlam and apparently that was the plan at one point. The tag team was told a while back that they were in line for a run with the titles.
 
We noted before that names considered for the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame include Mick Foley, Bob Backlund, Kevin Nash and The Ultimate Warrior. Another name rumored for induction is JBL.
Foley is considered a lock for induction and Bob Backlund 

had refused in the past but he recently returned for the angle with Heath Slater so he likely would be more willing to be inducted.

Regarding Warrior, the 2013 Royal Rumble is in his hometown of Phoenix, Arizona so if they can work out a deal for him to be inducted then it likely would be announced there.

 
Randy Orton may end up being the special referee for the Night of Champions World Heavyweight Title match, expected to be Sheamus defending against Alberto Del Rio. As noted before, Orton’s time will be limited as he’s scheduled to begin filming 12 Rounds: Reloaded in less than a month.
