Backstage Mason Ryan News, WWE In Brazil Line-up, AM Raw
– We noted yesterday that Mason Ryan’s role as Dolph Ziggler’s new bodyguard was up in the air after it was tested out at RAW live events over the weekend. Mason briefly appeared in a backstage segment with Abraham Washington on RAW and a source reports that Ryan will actually be managed by Washington, unless things change between now and next week’s RAW. Apparently officials decided to keep Ziggler with Vickie Guerrero and Jack Swagger.
