Vince Having Surgery, News on Jericho vs. Ryback, More

– We noted before that The Rock trained with Michael McGillicutty to prepare for his Royal Rumble match. Rock is now supporting McGillicutty and he’s always had Triple H backing him. No word yet on why he continues to be kept on the lower end of the roster. There’s been a big push to get rid of his name and call him Joe Hennig but WWE officials are so against real names these days because they want to full own everyone’s ring name.

– Vince McMahon is legitimately having surgery done on his left hip soon. Vince has had a bad hip for some time now. The storyline injury from Brock Lesnar was done as a reason to take off for the surgery.

– As noted before, the early word on plans for Chris Jericho’s return is that he will feud with Dolph Ziggler before turning heel and facing Ryback at WrestleMania 29. The idea would be to use Jericho to get Ryback back where he was. Jericho felt back in October that Hell In a Cell was the right time for Ryback to take the WWE Title.

    It’s always just a matter of time for a Jericho heel turn. No surprise at all.

    1. He should be “Almost Perfect” Joe Hennig.

    2. Vince doesn’t really need a reason to take time off, he’s Vince F’N McMahon.

    3. There’s no way they should/would let Ryback win a Championship before Dolph Ziggler.

  • Yep

    Maybe they’ll use footage from his surgery to show it’s legit and also show sympathy for Vince.

    Vince needed a reason to take time off for surgery, because OBVIOUSLY he’s on tv every day and people would wonder where he went.
