The Grapevine (12/7/15): Vince's Little Helper

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.

Not a lot for a hot Monday start this week:

  • With regards to Dewey Foley's new job with WWE creative, it actually is not a true writing position. His job is only part-time, possibly until only WrestleMania 32, unless he impresses officials enough by then. He has little creative power, and his responsibilities entail going over scripts with talent. Dewey will work from home and some live events. (Source: F4WOnline)

We say: So this is really just a glorified internship, and it looks all the more like a move made to try and placate the online fury of Mrs. Foley's Baby Boy. Of course, that's just us guessing, but it's funny that the solution WWE thinks is appropriate is to encourage nepotism rather than actually deal with the problem.

  • It looks like there will be a fourth ECW Original to round out the team of the Dudleys and Tommy Dreamer. Bubba Ray Dudley tweeted the following:

We say: Three words. Three letters. Two thumbs.

  • Rey Mysterio apparently has another knee injury. Rey was scheduled to wrestle this weekend's AAA tapings, but was in crutches. (Source: F4WOnline)

We say: With all the money Rey should have right now, we think it's time to go to Germany and have the Kobe operation (if he hasn't had them yet).

What do you think? Who is rounding out Team ECW against the Wyatts? Let us know what you think in the comments!
