WWE's deal with Full Sail University was picked up by several different media outlets, stemming from the press release they issued yesterday. Thursday's first taping is probably the most important day in WWE developmental FCW's history.
WWE is releasing a new Chris Jericho shirt next week. It's the first in almost five years as during his last run, Jericho was adamant that the company not market him with shirts as he wanted no sign of fan support for the character.
WWE will be releasing low priced DVDs on Sheamus and Daniel Bryan later this summer.
The following press release was issued today:
