- Many people assumed that WWE bringing back Shawn Michaels and John Cena for Hell In a Cell was their response to the negative reactions to the Battleground pay-per-view on Sunday. That isn’t the case as Michaels has been scheduled to get involved in the Daniel Bryan storyline for several weeks and they were talking about Cena returning last week.
- Brian “Road Dogg” James has been gaining more influence within WWE as of late. Part of the reason why is because Michael “PS” Hayes was sent home several weeks back.
As noted Michael “PS” Hayes was sent home several weeks back.
Hayes had been working with Triple H on booking live events, among other things. James is now filling in on that position and it was described as James being on the rise because Hayes gave him an opening. Besides doing TV events and live events, James is also working in the WWE offices quite a bit. Most of the wrestlers are happy with James’ presence in creative meetings since he’s been around the business so much longer than most of the decision makers, plus he talks the language of the wrestlers.
