    The Grapevine (4/5/21): Hurt Business Unhappy With Breakup, Backstage Reaction To Riddle Forgetting His Lines, WrestleMania SmackDown Note


    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    Hurt Business did not want to break up

    Vince McMahon made the call to break the Hurt Business up, despite the group's protests. Many fans and people, including the members of the stable themselves, were not happy about the decision, and MVP and Bobby Lashley even attempted to speak to McMahon to try and save the group. In the end, it was said that McMahon insisted on getting his way. Sources say that the current morale backstage is at a low because of this decision. (Source: Fightful Select)

    We say: This story tells you everything you need to know about how the business works backstage, and it lines up with the word about the company's current direction.

    Backstage reaction to Riddle forgetting his line on RAW

    Vince McMahon and Bruce Prichard loved Riddle legitimately forgetting his line in a backstage segment with Asuka on last week's RAW. The segment was apparently pretaped, but the officials thought it was so funny that they decided to broadcast it as it was. (Source: Wrestling Observer Live)

    We say: Well, they knew it would go viral, and it did.

    Reason for two WrestleMania kickoff matches happening on this Friday's SmackDown

    The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship Fatal Four-Way tag match are happening on this week's SmackDown for time reasons. The two nights of WrestleMania will be kept to around three and a half hours due to their later starting time. (Source: Wrestling Observer Radio)

    We say: SmackDown is essentially the pre-show, and now the pre-show really isn't a part of WrestleMania. Still, it's a good thing as we still want the shows to not go ridiculously long. Good move.
