FCW schedules TV tapings through May, WWE starts Twitter list for developmental promotion's talent

We have no way of knowing for sure whether or not Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) is going away shortly after WrestleMania 28 when decisions are made and the major changes Triple H recently teased for WWE's developmental system take effect.

What we do know is it's been reported the promotion will be shutting down after cancelling its television deal with Bright House Sports. Interestingly enough, though, FCW has updated its schedule of events on its website and shows are booked all the way through to the end of May with April 5, April 26, and May 17 designated as TV taping days.

This could simply mean they're playing out the string, so to speak, and June is when we'll see changes take effect. But that's a full two months after WrestleMania 28, which is scheduled for April 1 in Miami.

Another interesting update to the ongoing saga of FCW is WWE is now actively acknowledging its existence in social media form, something it had previously failed to do. In fact, they've set up an entire list page linking to the Twitter accounts of FCW talent including Seth Rollins, Husky Harris, Bo Rotunda and a group of others.

You can check out the complete list right here.

In years past, WWE has distanced itself publicly from acknowledging talent in its developmental territory until they're called up to the main roster. That's for obvious reasons, like constant gimmick changes and tweaks to their characters. But could this be one of the changes Triple H has spoken of taking effect early?

Any thoughts on all this, Cagesiders?
