    The Grapevine (2/14/22): Vince McMahon Thinks WWE Product Is Fine, WWE Interested In Jade Cargill, Rok-C

    Vince McMahon

    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!

    Vince McMahon thinks WWE doesn't need fixing

    Vince McMahon reportedly thinks that there are no problems to fix with WWE's creative direction. A source said that McMahon finds nothing wrong with the product, and that its commercial success emboldens him to shrug off any criticism. He reportedly pushes and presents what he wants." (Source: PWInsider)

    We say: While we'd love to tell you that if you find anything wrong with WWE (and there are a lot of you who do) you should stop watching, the sheer number of fans around the world who still like the product and contribute to its success will likely dwarf whatever boycotting a minority will do. If you're not a professional critic who's obligated to watch the show and create content around it, it's best to just move on to a wrestling product you like more.

    WWE interested in Jade Cargill

    WWE is reportedly interested in AEW TBS Champion Jade Cargill after seeing her work and improve on AEW programming. She had previously tried out for WWE but did not push through after the company questioned her dedication to a wrestling career while being a mother. (Source: Andrew Zarian)

    We say: With her success and mom stars like Becky Lynch still being able to carry the show despite their status, WWE's balking at Jade makes them look pretty silly. She'll likely jump for the right price, but until that happens we don't think she'd be making any moves from AEW anytime soon.

    WWE offers Rok-C a contract

    Former Ring of Honor Women's World Champion Rok-C has reportedly been offered a contract by WWE. She had taken part in a tryout, and is highly regarded by peers in the industry, with seven years of experience as she had been training since the age of 13. There is no word yet on whether she's accepted the contract. (Source: Dave Meltzer)

    We say: At 20 years old, she's well within the company's new directive for women wrestlers in the Performance Center. Signing with any major wrestling company would be good for her growth as a wrestler, but it's probably not the best idea to sign with WWE.
