Does Alberto Del Rio have backstage heat in WWE?
Alberto Del Rio rubbed a lot of people the wrong way in a promotional appearance he did in the San Francisco, California market last weekend. In the appearance, Del Rio admitted he didn't like most of the boys in the locker room and completely humiliated The Miz (click here for more). Why anyone would come out and talk like that this is beyond me. I understand heels have the ability to do hateful interviews in-character but why a worker would attempt to bury them self in this business is beyond me. I don't know if it will do anything to alter the way management views Del Rio but it does nothing from a public relations standpoint to improve his image.
There was a rumor last year that Triple H wanted to re-surge the tag team division in WWE by signing new tag teams. Is this still the plan?
The tag team division in WWE is like a yo-yo. WWE forgets about it for months then will build it up with upper mid-card to main event level workers. They are currently using the division to push Primo & Epico to help the Hispanic/Latino interest in Smackdown. I am not aware of an active initiative to bring in new tag team wrestlers.
Do you think there would be a difference in the Divas division in WWE if Lita or Trish Stratus came back?
Lita and Trish Stratus were very talented as I consider Trish one of the best Divas of all-time. However, I do not feel like the way WWE has pushed their Divas is because of a lack of talent. The company has had and still has talented Divas under contract. The reason they are featured like they are is Vince McMahon's vision for the division.
Is there any update on the Funkasaurus Brodus Clay?
As I noted yesterday, I've been checking around as to why Brodus Clay has been yanked from television. While I haven't heard back from my investigative source, the latest seems to be it is related to his in-ring work. I will update when/if I receive more information.
