-Word out of the WWF right now is that Sam Houston's time may be coming to an end. He was brought in as a favor for Jake Roberts but Houston isn't what the WWF is looking for, hence the arrival of Blackjack Mulligan. Mulligan fits the mold if you will and he has also been linked to the "machines" team that has been on house shows but yet to appear on television.
-The call for the machines come from Japan as they have been prominent in New Japan and the WWF has decided to keep the gimmick going.
-There is talk of about big card after this weekend's King of the Ring. The WWF will be hosting a televised event in cooperation with NBC called "The Main Event" and on that card, there is talk of a Piper vs Hogan or Orton vs Hogan World Title contest with Piper being involved in some way. This is being used as a way to promote "WrestleMania" which will be held on March the 31st, 1985, the next time the WWF tours the North East. No word on what "WrestleMania" is going to be yet, but there has already been talks of using Antonio Inoki on the show along with some other very big names.
-The WWF is looking to bolster their tag team division in the coming months. With the Russians firmly at the top and the Bulldogs right behind them. Look for some more additions to the ranks as seen with the rise of the Youngbloods and the arrival of the Machines.
-Speaking of tag teams, there is talk that Gino Hernandez may be headed back to the WWF after his time in Mexico is done... no word on if Chris Adams will be with him or not.
- The Barbarian suffered an injury this week on the road, not sure if he will be good to go for the King of the Ring or if there will be a last minute replacement.
