Backstage Zack Ryder News, The Rock On Cena, DDP/Nash, More

– The fact that Zack Ryder would have some vocal fans at Monday’s RAW in Long Island, New York was no secret going into the show. This was talked about internally and the decision was made to have him perform on Superstars only. People within WWE were upset that Ryder wasn’t used with the feeling that he’s got himself over with fans using social media and without a normal WWE push, and he wasn’t even put on RAW because the company knew he would get a bigger reaction than some of the stars they push on TV.

– The Rock took a photo with Disney character Goofy while at the theme park yesterday and wrote the following about John Cena as a caption: “Just bumped into John Cena! I was gonna knock the goofy off his ass, but I’ll save that ass whuppin for Wrestlemania.” You can view the photo at this link.

– Diamond Dallas Page and Kevin Nash are scheduled to be at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo in Calgary this weekend from the BMO Centre.

– ECW Original The Sandman turns 48 years old today while The Ultimate Warrior turns 52.
