Backstage News On McMahon Family Storyline, Chris Jericho Tangles With Japanese Star
– PWMania.com reported earlier this week that it was the McMahon family who came up with the current power struggle storyline that we’ve been seeing on WWE TV, and that’s reportedly going through WrestleMania XXX. The recent report that the USA Network wanted more of the McMahons on TV isn’t the case.
There have been times in the past that USA wanted Vince back on TV, thinking he helps ratings and usually he does, but his most recent return has not provided a ratings boost. The main reason the McMahons are back on TV right now is because they booked themselves into the top WrestleMania XXX storyline.
– Japanese wrestlers KENTA, Katsuyori Shibata and Yoshihiro Takayama sat in the front row for Thursday’s WWE live event in Tokyo. During his match with Antonio Cesaro, Chris Jericho got into it with Takayama at ringside. Jericho cut a promo after the match and thanked Japan and the Japanese fans for supporting him throughout his career.
