The Grapevine (5/11/16): Better With The Lights Off



Good morning, Henrinites, and welcome to your daily Grapevine! Here is where we round up all the rumors, news and bits of hearsay in the wild world of professional wrestling that you may have missed over the evening.

If you were wondering what the real worth of Chris Jericho's jacket was:


  • Though Chris Jericho's light-up jacket was touted on-air as being worth $15,000, it's actually worth $25,000. Dean Ambrose destroyed the studded cowhide leather jacket in the main event segment of this week's episode of RAW. (Source: WrestlingInc)

We say: Well, that thing had run its course anyway. But $25,000, though?


  • Vince McMahon confirmed that top stars John Cena, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, and Bray Wyatt are set to return in the next month. Cena is likely to return on the May 30 episode of RAW, while Rollins just wrapped up filming Temple. We reported yesterday that Orton still has to train for the ring, and while Wyatt is set to return soon, it'll be a few more weeks until he can wrestle. (Source: PWInsider)

We say: Let's hope this is the beginning of the end of the Injury Era. (Even though the more people come back, the more others get injured.)


  • Speaking of injuries, Dana Brooke was called up so that she and Emma can fill the void left by Naomi and Tamina. Both Naomi and Tamina are dealing with respective injuries and will be out for a while. (Source: WrestlingInc)

We say: That makes sense—but Team BAD better watch out, because Emma and Dana are much better than both of them.

What do you think? Were you sad to see Jericho's jacket go? Let us know what you think in the comments!
