While it's very likely this is a work, I'm not 100% sure. WWE has dooped me good with this one.
Is this on WWE.com? I would think if it was on the website then it would be a work. Especially in the way it's worded.
It's interesting though, I have to say. Very out of the blue. As long as it doesn't turn out to be Maddox doing whatever he can to stay relevant type thing, then it could be an interesting little Spark for him.
