— WWE has removed Lena Yada’s profile from the SmackDown & Divas section. When you go to the old page, it’s a “Not Found” page. Her profile isn’t on the ECW website either. However, she doesn’t appear to be in any trouble because on tonight’s ECW broadcast, they advertised her for a “Best Body” contest on next week’s show.
— Shantelle Taylor, who was under a developmental contract to WWE before being released in the summer, is featured as the “Sexy Superfan Of The Month” in the latest issue of WWE Magazine. There is a portrait photo and a candid photo of her posing in front of some WWE merchandise, not to mention that they give her a wrestling quiz. There is absolutely no reference made to her wrestling past. She lists her occupation as fitness instructor/promotional model. She signed a deal with WWE in May 2006 and appeared on Deep South Wrestling & Florida Championship Wrestling shows until her release from the company last summer. Taylor appeared on one WWE house show swing last year when she wrestled Jamie Noble as an ambiguous masked wrestler. Officials gave Taylor another look when she wrestled Jillian Hall in a dark match prior to a Smackdown/ECW taping in June. She was reportedly released because creative had nothing for her on the main roster.
— Victoria has posted up a new blog on her MySpace noting that her goal for 2008 is to become the WWE Cruiserweight Champion. She also references this very site, Rajah.com, because the fans voted her as the Best Diva to appear on WWE Heat in 2007. She also says that she got a new look. She typed her blog from backstage at tonight’s SmackDown/ECW tapings, but doesn’t think she’ll be working tonight, so you’re going to have to wait a little longer to see it. You can read the blog in its entirety at this link.
