The Grapevine (12/10/15): No Nepotism Here

Good morning, everyone! Welcome to the Grapevine, where we round up the (technically unconfirmed) rumors from the wild world of pro wrestling that you may have missed over the evening.

There is more to the Dewey Foley saga:

  • Mick Foley did not pull strings to get his son Dewey a job at WWE Creative. The only thing he did was to ask people where Dewey can submit writing samples, which Triple H reportedly liked. If anything, Mick's recent harsh criticisms of RAW on his blog would have made it a lot harder for Dewey to get a job; he might even be coming in with a little heat on him. As reported previously, he'll be starting as a writer's assistant in January. (Source: PWInsider)

We say: It's a little hard for people, especially Filipinos, to believe, but some things aren't actually the result of nepotism.

  • Alberto del Rio says he did not return to AAA to drop the AAA Mega Championship due to their "disorganization." WWE was apparently going to allow him to drop the title at AAA's Guerra de Titanes show on December 4, but when AAA canceled their show, WWE withdrew their offer. Del Rio commented that it was a shame he wasn't able to go out gracefully in Mexico due to AAA being disorganized. (Source:, Reforma)

We say: It sounds like AAA is really messing up—with the horribly-botched TripleMania this year and now a cancelled show, it looks like their ties to Lucha Underground may be their last saving grace.

What do you think? Will Dewey survive his internship to try and be the savior of WWE Creative? Who do you think they need to hire? Let us know what you think in the comments!
