Backstage News on Brodus Clay, Reaction to RAW Debate, More
- WWE Champion CM Punk is doing media this morning in Chicago to promote tonight’s DVD documentary screening at The Portage Theater.
– We noted earlier this week that Vince McMahon was seen upset at Monday’s RAW. By the time the night was over, it’s said that he was in a much better mood for the Jim Ross Appreciation Night stuff that happened after RAW. One of the reasons Vince is in a bad mood these days is because USA Network officials aren’t happy with the way things are going with three-hour RAW shows.
– There is talk backstage that Vince has soured on the Brodus Clay “Funkasaurus” character, which is why the push he had going has stalled. We noted months ago that Clay may be going back to his old monster gimmick and that seems more likely now.
– There was a very negative backstage reaction to the World Championship Debate with Booker T, Sheamus and Big Show on Monday’s RAW. Going into RAW, they wanted to put some focus on Show vs. Sheamus but had no idea things would fall apart the way they did.
