Zack Zeigler on wwe.com is reporting that Jennifer Walcott pulled out of the Diva Search. Her replacement is slated to be Erica Chevillar, who you may know as the teacher who got in all that trouble for the bikini pictures.
During your one-handed speculation on why Walcott left, please refrain from references to JBL, showers, Orton, gym bags, or poo.
1) Humanmeal's idea to tie up good independent wrestlers with (relatively) low-cost, long-term contracts is valid. Many of those wrestlers would be glad of a reliable paycheck, as well as being available to the WWE star-making machinery.
