Backstage News on RVD vs. Del Rio, Foley Praises Sandow & Wyatt, More
– Mick Foley had praise for Damien Sandow and Bray Wyatt following this week’s SmackDown:
“OK, good night for real this time. By the way, @WWEBrayWyatt is my new hero…with all due respect to @RRWWE. Intoxicating stuff, bro.”
“I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE! With all due respect to @WWEBrayWyatt, following the end of #Smackdown, it is @TheDamienSandow who is my true hero.”
– WWE Total Divas Eva Marie and Jo Jo Offerman worked as hosts for this weekend’s NXT live events. NXT Diva Erika Hammond, who has been suffering from an injury, was also back to work this week. She also did some ring announcing. Eva continues to play up the heel role that we saw on RAW in the MizTV segment.
– The reason the Rob Van Dam vs. Alberto Del Rio match ended the way it did on Friday night’s SmackDown was because Del Rio suffered a broken rib or ribs the night before in his match against Sheamus. The quick loss for RVD wasn’t meant to bury him or anything, it was just WWE’s attempt to gimmick their way out of a match that was previously advertised.
