Vince McMahon

- Dean Ambrose’s “do you like Shane-O-Mac?” line on Raw was a direct feed from Vince McMahon that reportedly upset Triple H. Stephanie McMahon’s promo was of the worked shoot variety, as we’ve already gone over the pushback from her and Hunter about Shane McMahon returning. There is real tension that gives Vince McMahon great leverage regarding his successor.

- It was communicated to Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch to “slow it down” in the ring due to a few botched spots. They really weren’t that big of a deal and probably went unnoticed to most people. Notwithstanding, Vince McMahon is high up on the work of Sasha Banks and feels her work is better than a lot of the men on the roster.

- The name of the Bulletproof Balor Club could eventually change to the Bulletproof Club but WWE wants to incorporate Finn Balor into the name, at least at first, to build momentum and sell merchandise.

- We heard Vince McMahon isn’t happy with the finisher of Alberto Del Rio and wants him to use something that’s more believable.

- The booking of Ryback continues to be questioned, with the feeling he was finally getting over and now his ring gear has been changed and a slow heel turn initiated.

- It doesn’t look like Wrestlemania 33 is going to take place from the Big House in Ann Arbor, Michigan. There was recent contact but it's coming down to money, with specific issues being revenue sharing and splitting the venue as well concessions. When the NHL hosted the 2014 Winter Classic at the venue, they rented the stadium from the University of Michigan to avoid these things. The NHL paid nearly $5 million to do it but netted over $20 million, with local businesses also benefitting. WWE is expected to make an official announcement about the home of Wrestlemania 33 over Wrestlemania 32 weekend but right now Orlando is looking like the likely destination with Minneapolis seemingly left out in the cold.
