Shawne Merriman

I'm NOT Signed to WWE

... Yet

Don't expect to see Shawne Merriman inside a WWE ring anytime soon ... 'cause his recent training session with the wrestling company was just for fun -- at least for now.

Shawne posted a pic earlier this week of some gnarly mat burn he got while training at the WWE's Performance Center in Florida ... leading many to believe he signed with the wrestling company.

But multiple sources tell us .. no deals were made, no paperwork has been signed ... Shawne was just messing around after WWE exec Triple H invited him down to check out the state of the art facilities.

We're told Shawne had a blast ... and the WWE people enjoyed having Shawne ... so, there's a possibility of the two juggarnauts working together in the future.

But for now, it's too early to tell if Shawne has a professional future in the squared circle.

... and that's the bottom line.

If Triple H is Allegedly the COO of WWE how come he does not know how to run a company the stock price has been Stagnate since its IPO at around 8 dollars a share. HE Runs His Mouth about what is best for business, but He is not referring to stock holders.

He's make lots of money, and he'd probably be good at it. I say go for it. Merriman vs Hornswaggle.

This guy is even to much of a tool for the WWE. He can't talk unless there is a script in front of him. Ask him and he will tell you he is not even black. So much for that college education.

Those red marks are from running the ropes, not the mat. Do your research TMZ.

He isn't going to be signed. He had a try-out, and its said that he sucked in the ring. He definitely was training there, and he had officials watching him, which isn't done if someone is goofing around.
