WWE.com has a report that The Sandman has been released by WWE effective Tuesday. Sandman was on Monday night’s Raw in a match against Santino Marella and in the final segment of the show with the announcement of Vince McMahon’s son.

Sandman was a part of the ECW brand re-launch in June 2006 before moving to Raw in the Draft Lottery this past June.

Wade Keller reports that Ric Flair will still be gone from the WWE so he can come home to Charlotte and get that finance company up and off the ground. Flair Finance will use the motto that they have failed every way in the book and they will help you to not make the same financial mistakes that Ric Flair has made. They’ll help you avoid the pitfalls of the “Nature Boy” and charge you a fee for their services.

Booker T is on a 30-60 suspension and Keller says that Robert “Booker T” Tio Huffman will probably walk away from the WWE and go home to Dallas to run his wrestling school. Booker T’s wife Sharmell is just about finished with Law School and that should help them financially once she gets rolling. King Booker has had trouble in the past in the WWE with smoking strong tobacco or some form of a wacky weed.

The Tampa Bay Fox news station reports that the Hogan family has hired a high-profile criminal defense attorney, Barry Cohen. Cohen will represent Hulk Hogan’s 17 year old son, Nick, in legal fallout from Nick’s high-speeding driving and the consequences which have left his friend John Graziano fighting for his life in a coma since the crash.*****I hope for the Hogan(Bollea) family’s sake that this isn’t the same Barry Cohen that used to run Southern States Wrestling out at Plato’s Crash Landing near the airport.*****

Some of the Bear’s talents included “Cowboy” Chris Star, “Bam Bam” Coalson, “Mean” Mark Vance, The Libiyan Assassin(now “Boogie Woogie” Rob McBride), “Soulman” Ken Stainback, and the ever-popular “Diamond Dan” Grondy.
