– John Cena is also scheduled to be on Jimmy Fallon’s NBC late-night show tonight, in addition to the appearance on G4’s Attack of the Show. It’s almost like WWE is putting more focus on 12 Rounds right now than WrestleMania 25, the biggest event of the year. During some of these media interviews for 12 Rounds, Cena isn’t even mentioning WrestleMania.
– It’s WrestleMania time and the drama within WWE is still running wild. Vince McMahon has flipped out more recently including blown gaskets regarding the buzz for the Chris Jericho WrestleMania match and then scrapping the all-Divas ECW special. Vince lost his mind when the 1.9 SmackDown rating from two weeks ago came in and has been saying one of his goals for the WWE Draft is to make RAW better.
There’s a feeling in WWE that considering how thick the SmackDown roster is right now plus appearances by RAW talents, a 1.9 rating is pretty embarrassing. Vince has been name-dropping Bruce Prichard lately as a possible addition to the SmackDown writing team to help Michael Hayes. The head of WWE creative, Stephanie McMahon, hates Prichard and blows Vince off every time he brings the name up. Of course, in the end, if Vince wants Prichard back then he will have him back. We reported last year that Prichard was done with WWE but technically he is still under contract until June. It’s also known that Jeff Jarrett has brought Prichard up in TNA meetings so as June gets closer, Vince might change his mind on letting go of Prichard.
