- WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is said to be a huge fan of Fandango's new character, which is the reason we've seen him get such a strong push in recent weeks. The match against Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 29 is designed to further get Fandango over - since a loss won't hurt Jericho but a win for the newcomer at the WWE's biggest show of the year would establish him as a strong mid-card player.
- Regarding Jericho’s WWE status, the two sides are talking about what his role with the company will be in the coming months. The situation remains that Jericho likes working with WWE as long as he has the freedom to pursue outside projects like his band Fozzy, the Robot Combat League and other TV hosting gigs.
- There has been talk of Mark Henry taking extended time off from WWE after WrestleMania. WWE officials have been very happy with his current WWE run, so there's a good chance they'll get him to stick around longer.
