[Misc News] Former WWE wrestler Robbie McAlister (Derek Graham-Couch) of the Highlanders was visiting backstage at the TV tapings this past week in Orlando. An interesting back story is that last March during a live broadcast of Impact, Couch was shown on camera sitting in the crowd with his son after being promised by TNA officials that the cameras wouldn’t pick him up. Well, long story short is they screwed him, although it’s probably his own fault, and showed him with a graphic listing his real name. The show took place a few days prior to Wrestlemania 24 in Orlando and the Highlanders ended up with a ton of locker room heat and were eventually released a few months later..
