Backstage News on Vince McMahon and the RAW/SmackDown Creative Process

For what it’s worth, more than one source has reported in the last 2 months that Vince McMahon has seemed a lot more tired than usual. Lots of people are wondering how Vince’s age is affecting the product and how much longer he will continue to work the schedule that he does.

On a related note, it’s said that Vince’s focus is 100% on RAW right now. One source noted that SmackDown always comes off better on TV because head writer Ed Koskey is pretty much left to do his job without having to do so many re-writes. RAW has more re-writes every week and has Vince putting in a lot more input than on SmackDown.

Batista Speaks of Eddie Guerrero, Takes Shot at WWE

In a statement posted on Twitter today, former WWE Champion Batista remembers Eddie Guerrero on the anniversary of his death 6 years ago today. The following are highlights:

"Got a text from my homie @sonnyblowdro when I woke up asking me if I was ok, I assumed he was referring to Manny's fight last night. I automatically got defensive!! Styles make fights! Manny always has trouble with Marquez!! He still won!! Then when he said he wasn't asking because of Manny I quickly realized that today was Nov.13th....the day Eddie Guerrero was taken from us 6 years ago.

As plain as day I can still hear Angie scream and then look at me and say "i just got a message from Dr.Rios.....Eddie's dead". I wish I could erase that from my memory. I haven't found closure on this. I don't think I ever will. I know alot of people won't. It bugs the shit out of me that there's millions of young wrestling fans who won't get to see how brilliant Eddie was in the ring. He's the only guy I know who could have you in tears laughing and then make you want to rip his head off within minutes. What I personally loved most about Eddie was that he didn't define people by their mistakes. he made alot and he never forgot that. He didn't pass judgement...which is so common in the HOLIER THAN THOU world of the WWE.

Eddie was also the slowest walking human being alive...which always amused the hell out of me for some reason. I don't know how he ever got anywhere!! I could go on and on but I'll end it by saying this. Eddie..I miss you, I love you, and you are gone but never forgotten. RIP my brother."

Big Show Talks About Feuding With Mark Henry, His Career

Here are some highlights of what Big Show recently spoke about during an interview

Mark Henry: “He has really come into his own and stepped up his level of intensity. When you’re in the ring with him, you feel how powerful he is. I’m not embarrassed to say Mark is stronger than I am. “When I’m in the ring with someone who has a real potential to crush my spine, it increases my intensity level. Mark makes me push myself athletically.”

Dark Match Main Events at TV Tapings: “We do a great job putting out our TV product, but for fans in specific market areas, we like to give them something extra. It’s a reward for people for showing their support and coming out.”

His Career: “I’ve never been that kind of guy to talk about great matches or bad matches. What happened yesterday is what happened yesterday. I’ve worked with some of the biggest names in this business. And yeah, I’ve been around a long time and done a lot of cool things. But I just try to stay humble and keep working hard.”

“I enjoy what I do so much, but I don’t want to celebrate. If I keep my head down keep pushing, maybe nobody will notice I’ve been around so long.”

Why Sin Cara Isn't on the Road with WWE

Regarding Sin Cara not appearing on WWE's current tour of Europe, it's believed he's absent due to visa issues. The speculation is that when WWE did their papers for the tour earlier this year, it was when they were considering releasing Cara from his contract, so he wasn't able to travel with the company.


Chyna Says Hunter Should Have Been Honest about Steph Affair

Chyna, who is clamoring for a return to WWE via Twitter, continues to comment on Triple H's romantic affair with Stephanie McMahon over a decade ago.

When asked how she discovered Hunter was having an affair with Stephanie, she replied, "I found a love letter that Stephanie sent to Hunter while we were together."

A follower told her to take the high road. Chyna, however, feels: "I have taken the high road for years. Taking the high road cost me my job."

She adds further, "I can't stop true love, but be honest with me about it."

Despite her grievances with Triple H and Stephanie, Chyna says she has no problem working with them again in WWE since "it's business, not personal."


WWE Starting to Tease the Return of the Undertaker

WWE's website published an article on Thursday speculating about the Undertaker's whereabouts - and when he'll return.

The Undertaker, who made his WWE television debut 20 years ago at Survivor Series 1991, hasn't been seen on television for months.

The storyline-driven article questions whether the Undertaker could appear at Survivor Series - or at WrestleMania 28 from Miami.

"If The Phenom is to reemerge in time to compete on The Grandest Stage of Them All, he will be attempting to extend The Streak to 20-0. With that in mind, it is possible that The Deadman may not be seen until The Show of Shows."
