Dreamer on the ropes

About two weeks after Lance Storm announces his hanging up the boots from in ring competition due to injuries to become a trainer for OVW, Tommy Dreamer made the shocking announcement on WWE's Byte This! internet radio show that when his contract with WWE expires in July, WWE would not be re-newing but instead had offered him a behind the scenes position, probably as a road agent or talent relations.
A former ECW World Champion, Tag Champion and WWE Hardcore Champion, Dreamer is another of the many miss-used talent under WWE's wing that never seemed to go far. The peak of his WWE career was his Hardcore title run up till the title was merged with the Intercontinental title and Dreamer would only be seen again on RAW from time to time as the job-man in the occasional squash match.
Dreamer has indeed expressed his interest in working backstage for WWE, though I would prefer seeing him have one more run, maybe in Japan if not TNA.
