— According to multiple sources, Vince McMahon continues to act very bizarrely backstage. He has been spending more time than ever behind closed doors in his make-shift offices, and he spends increasingly less time running walk-throughs for RAW and SmackDown! television segments. One source describes McMahon’s recent behavior as “unpredictable.”
— Recent rumors that Jonathan Coachman receives a higher salary than Cole, Tazz and Lawler didn’t sit well with his colleagues.
— There are conflicting reports going around as to how the Trish-Mickie James storyline will play out. The obvious, intuitive talk has been that James will turn on her idol, but one emerging idea is to turn Trish heel, for both the surprise element and the fact that Stratus was generally considered a strong heel character.
