Backstage News On Broken Matt, Drew McIntyre, Finn Balor, and Who Vince Wasn't Happy With on Raw

Finn Balor

-In regards to Matt Hardy, there were recent developments in Impact filing trademarks. It looks as though even if Matt cannot be "Broken" he can be "Woken" and WWE has decided to move forward with it we saw the beginning of them greenlighting it on Raw. Matt Hardy was also a little under the weather on Monday.

-Drew McIntyre did have surgery last week on his bicep, it was a full tear. Normally recovery is 4-6 months and while this is bad news, the silver lining is that there was scar tissue and minimal bruising to the muscle which will help recovery. Drew is optimistically hoping for a WrestleMania return.

-Finn Balor, who recently took to social media in regards to him not being over, may actually have a chance still at main eventing the Royal Rumble. There was talk and an idea pitched that Vince liked a lot. The idea is that Finn looks normal in his non-demon gear and can be stopped or beaten like Kane did on Raw only to show up later as the Demon and destroy Kane. The idea is fine; however, with Kane continuing his feud with Braun Strowman, I'm not sure if they'll run with the Balor idea. As of right now, there is still no final plan on Brock Lesnar's Rumble opponent.

-Vince was not too happy with Bray Wyatt's physical condition on Monday; the words "sloppy" and "blown up" were used. Let's remember Bray was ill and unable to train during the period of time where he was out with the viral infection. However, this is not the first time Vince has had issues with his weight.
