Very true man. Can't wait to speak to Gabe Sapolsky about that. Get his take on it.
For what it's worth Wrestling Observer are reporting that Shelley is finishing up his schooling and then off to NJPW for the September tour and will then sign for WWE.
There's a lot of uncertainty about WWE signing TNA guys what with the court case that's going on at the moment around Flair and WWE messing with TNA contracted guys. Not sure if you heard the story but a dude who worked for TNA got a job with WWE and took with him all the TNA talent contract info, when the contracts expired, how much they were getting paid, all that shit. He then took that to WWE who had it for about a month before telling TNA they had it. They fired the guy from WWE.
Then for 'some reason' TNA talented started to not renew their contracts. TNA thinking WWE were using the confidential information accused WWE of illegally approaching their contracted talent and sued. Flair is the main centre of the case.
I think Shelley's contract expired before the court action was raised, so he's free to move. Guys like Flair, Matt Morgan, Velvet Sky and whoever else won't be able to join WWE as their contracts expired after the action was raised.
I'm sure it'll all get sorted out though, these wrestling law suits tend to go that way eventually.
