— As seen on SmackDown in recent weeks, Chris Jericho has started a program with Rey Mysterio. The two are feuding because Jericho requested working with the high flying superstar.

The feud actually started during the company’s tour of Europe last month with Jericho “accidentally” unmasking Mysterio in various matches.

Jericho is very hands-on when putting his programs together, and given his track record, this feud looks to have great potential.

— Gregory Helms is injured and not quite ready to wrestle, hence his new role as a backstage announcer on ECW. Company officials gave him the role so he could continue appearing on television and develop his character on the brand.

— It’s not a lock that Tommy Dreamer will be leaving WWE next month as they have offered him a new contract.

On January 13, 2009, Dreamer announced that if he fails to win the ECW Championship by June 6th, when his WWE contract expires, he will retire. June 6th take places on a Saturday, the day before the Extreme Rules pay-per-view in New Orleans.
