Here at WrestlingRambles.com, we champion all things wrestling from the jobbers to the WrestleMania size news.

Speaking of champions, an interesting piece of news regarding the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship.

UNIFIED WWE TAG TEAM TITLES TO BE DEFENDED AT A NON-WWE EVENT

Unified WWE Tag Team champions Primo Colon and Epico will be defending the title for the World Wrestling Council, which is owned and promoted by Carlos Colon (Primo Colon’s father) according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Carlos Colon competed in the 1993 WWE Royal Rumble match entering at number 24, lasting just over 7 minutes before being eliminated by 2012 WWE Hall Of Famer Yokozuna.

On April 28th in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, will feature the Unified WWE Tag Team Champions going against a masked team called Los Enmascarados Misteriosos.

Primo Colon and Epico’s contract apparently allows them to work a number of WWC dates a year and WWE has always kept a business connection with Carlos Colon.

LORD TENSAI’s FINISHER ALTERED

The claw move Lord Tensai has been using has been altered for safety purposes.

The hold is now starting from the standing position so the opponent can land on their back when they hit the mat.

Originally, it was starting from Lord Tensai’s knee which caused the point of impact to be on the opponents head. The report states the referee stopages to the matches are over.

NEW SIDEKICK FOR BRODUS CLAY

As seen on WWE this past couple of weeks on WWE Monday Night Raw Supershow and WWE Friday Night SmackDown, Hornswoggle Finlay (remember he is Fit Finlay’s son – #kayfabe) is now Brodus Clay’s sidekick which was originally going to be Santino Marella’s role.

Cameron Lynn & Naomi is still part of Brodus Clay’s crew.

Why the change to the decision remains a mystery.

Speaking about mysteries, has anyone seen Rey Mysterio jr on your travels, or has he just gone in to obscurity with Perry Saturn somewhere… does anyone even care? 

Well if you do then hes been suspended for 60 days for violating the WWE Wellness Policy.

The WWE Superstars just now are dropping like flies.

JOSH MATHEWS UPDATE

(via. WWE.com)

WWE.com has learned that Josh Mathews is in stable condition following a vicious attack at the hands of Brock Lesnar during WWE Monday Night Raw SuperShow in Detroit Monday night. Mathews had been interviewing the self-proclaimed “wrecking machine” about his upcoming Extreme Rules contest against John Cena when Lesnar – evidently unhappy with the quality of Mathews’ questions – snapped and drove the helpless Mathews through the interview set, leaving him strewn across the backstage area while paramedics rushed to his aid.

“When [Josh] was thrown through the set, he did land and twisted his neck, and he’s experiencing some neck stiffness, tightness,” said locker room physician Dr. Michael Sampson to WWE.com reporters.

A follow-up MRI confirmed that Mathews suffered some nerve damage in his neck from the attack, in addition to the abrasions and lacerations over his body attributed to his impact with the Raw interview set. Mathews is currently under medical observation as he recovers from Lesnar’s assault.

Given that Lesnar has demanded carte blanche to do what he likes as compensation for his match against John  Cena, one can only wonder if attacks like this are destined to be the norm in John Laurinaitis’ WWE.

In related injury news, @WWEInsider on twitter had this to say regarding Paul Bearer.
