Since Steve Austin and Vince McMahon are at odds, WWE no longer has a host for the upcoming return of Tough Enough. They reportedly turned their attention to Chris Jericho, who is also doing a podcast interview show or the company. They feel that he would be a more than adequate replacement for Austin. Jericho, however, has stated that he has not had any talks with the front office about the role. He might just be working the fans, though.

Since he made an appearance as Bubba Ray during the Royal Rumble, a lot of fans are under the assumption that Mark LoMonaco is officially back with WWE on a full time basis. Some are even ruling out the possibility of a return to TNA. That is not the case at all. Vince McMahon has yet to make him an offer, and there is a chance it might not happen at all.

What once seemed like an imminent return to WWE is now in jeopardy, as reports have surfaced that Rey Mysterio could be receiving his release from the company any day now. Apparently, things have gone sour between the two sides. It was not all that long ago that Vince McMahon had made amends with his former world heavyweight champion.

It appears that an increase in money has led to a reconciliation between Rey Mysterio and WWE. Reports have surfaced that Vince McMahon had grown a bit desperate because numbers in Mexico had not been what they were expecting, so he knew that he needed one of his draws back on television.
