Bonnie Hammer on What She Thought WWE Should Be, Vince McMahon Comments, Message from Daniel Bryan, Natalya, Cena

December 20, 2011   ·   0 Comments

– The New York Times ran a feature today on NBCUniversal executive Bonnie Hammer that featured quotes from WWE CEO Vince McMahon. Vince said about working with Hammer:

“She just came in and rolled up her sleeves. She taught us a lot about network quality writing, story arcs, character development. She really helped the overall brand.”

Hammer told The Times that she thought WWE should be a male soap opera and decided that a heavy sports emphasis of WWE’s programming limited its audience.

– WWE announcer Justin Roberts has launched a new business at HandsToGo.com. He is selling portable massage devices. The $98 package includes the massager, 2 wires, 4 pads and free shipping.

– After WWE Divas Champion Beth Phoenix mentioned Kharma on Twitter last night, her partner Natalya did the same today. She wrote:

“@TheBethPhoenix … Not even @kharma can break us. Pinup strong forever.”

– John Cena congratulated Zack Ryder and Daniel Bryan today with the following:

“Great ppv last night! Can’t wait for RAW today. Congrats to zack and d bryan. New champs!”

– New World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan posted the following message on his official website this afternoon:

“Six years ago CM Punk and I wrestled a 45 minute match in Florida in front of probably 36 people. It’s fun watching us pretend to be superstars when we’re really just a couple of Indy schmucks.”

Former WWE creative team member Seth Mates says if history is any indication – we shouldn’t expect a long title reign from new World Heavyweight champion Daniel Bryan. Mates tweeted on Monday afternoon @SethMates:

“To borrow a holiday metaphor, this is the time of year (between Survivor Series and the Royal Rumble) when Vince (McMahon) ‘tries on’ his new clothes or new main eventers.”

“Foley (99), Jericho (01), Evolution (03), Edge (06), Sheamus (09), Miz (10), Bryan (11) among those elevated during this stretch of (the year). And to continue with the bad holiday metaphor, Vince has (until) Royal Rumble undercard to return them if they don’t fit just right. Also, Jeff Hardy in ’08 – almost forgot him.”

“So don’t be surprised if Bryan loses the title at (Royal Rumble). Not a dealbreaker…just Vince’s history with change.”

As previously reported, original plans called for Mark Henry to remain champion for several more months. However, Henry suffered a groin injury during his match with John Cena on RAW last week and the call was made for Henry to drop the title at TLC.
