Thanks to Ranjit Chahal for his help with some of the following newsbits:
— If you’re not a fan of the Ryback heel turn, just wait a couple of weeks. There are now talks that WWE could be turning Ryback into a babyface again after his program with John Cena ends. The writers have been especially careful to include scripts where he repeatedly explains his actions, which would make it easier for them to turn back after Extreme Rules.
— The early word is that Mark Henry may be going over Sheamus at the upcoming Extreme Rules pay per view. WWE creative feels that a decisive victory would elevate him enough to put him into a WWE Championship program with John Cena the following month. Of course, Henry wants a push and management has been looking to “reward” him for the extracurricular work with scouting that he has done for them over the last year. He’s always been known to be very relaxed and rarely causes any issues backstage.
— Here is the latest edition of WZR Radio featuring myself (Ryan Clark) and Matt Boone. This week, we give you the latest on The Rock’s issues with WWE and why he was blatantly lying during a recent interview where he said he notified WWE he was flying home after WrestleMania. Why is he lying? What does he have to gain from it? Get the absolute latest. We address The Rock story a little bit in hour number one and then really break it down in hour number two around 1:24:00. We also talk about why Rosa Mendes was sent home from the European tour and whether she’ll be fired in the coming weeks. Also, will there be main roster cuts coming after the European tour? Check out the latest on all of this + a RAW recap below. WZR Radio airs LIVE every Tuesday night from 8-10EST. Look for the live links to be posted here on the website around 7EST every Tuesday night.
