Credit: Wrestling Observer Newsletter
— There are people backstage in WWE who are not pleased with Jeff Hardy’s decision to take time off while SmackDown is short on main event talent. His contract is rumored to be expiring very soon and his future is in doubt. Jeff has received praise for his recent performances. WWE has been impressed with his work ethic on the road and the work he’s done putting CM Punk over. The general feeling is that it is imminent that Hardy will take a break, which is why WWE is working hard to get talent like John Morrison and Dolph Ziggler over.
– There is still no definitive return date set for Edge, who is recovering from recent foot surgery. The hope is that he can return in time for WrestleMania season to work a program with Chris Jericho.
– As previously reported, Vince McMahon shot down the idea of using Hulk Hogan as a future Raw guest host. There is heat between Vince and Hogan, but another reason that Vince didn’t like the idea is that he wants to focus on mainstream celebrities for now. When WWE legends are brought in, they will be used to set up Pay-Per-View matches.
