Update On Why Michael Hayes Is Taking Time Off, BG James Gaining Power

It is rumored that WWE official Michael Hayes has been suspended by WWE for giving alcohol to WWE Diva Rosa Mendes just days after she returned from work and underwent treatment for alcohol dependency.

Former WWE writer Court Bauer recently revealed on the MLW Radio Show that Hayes is taking time off from WWE to deal with “personal issues.”

Hayes had been working directly with Triple H on booking live events. During his absence from WWE, former WWE Superstar Brian “Road Dogg” James has been taking on a bigger role behind the scenes. Aside from working TV tapings and live events, James is also working a lot at WWE headquarters and attending creative meetings. Most WWE superstars like the idea of James being part of the creative process, since he’s been in the business for decades.

WWE has yet to release a statement regarding Hayes’ absence.
